You're Invited

Family Church invites you to attend our 2024 Equipped to Counsel Conference happening February 23rd-25th in Marco Island Florida. The purpose of this conference is to help equip the church to be a culture of care to those around us through our counsel, discipleship, and service. At this conference we will seek to give a model and foundational principles of what it looks like to truly care for the spiritual needs of those around you in daily life. 

We hope you can join us as we seek to grow in what it means to truly be a culture of care through the Gospel of Christ.
