If families are called to live in Christ, to follow him, this will often mean carrying with him a cross of suffering.

Our own condition, whether it comes to our family backgrounds or our singleness or our marriages or our parenting, is clarified when we see that our place in a family is designed both to shape us and to point us to the gospel. 

This conference is designed to equip families to see that all of our family stories are shaped by the ultimate story of our lives, the gospel (Rom. 8:29).
