“… Says the Lord, I will be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be my people.” Jer. 31:1
The family ministries department seeks to provide resources and encouragement to those who are desirous to strengthen and grow families in the Rocky Mountain Conference. The influence of a family can have eternal results. We may never know the extent to which a family may bring guidance and encouragement to others. Not only can family influence those who are within the family, but a family may also have eternal influence to those around them.
"One well-ordered, well-disciplined family tells more in behalf of Christianity than all the sermons that can be preached." E G White, The Adventist Home, p 32.
