Raising a family today can be complicated. Family Life Ministry is focused on helping families improve and strengthen their walk with Christ and their relationships with each other.

Our Definition of Family Life Ministry at ECC

Family Life

It is ministry in the local church focused on the discipleship of each member of the family, which meets their unique emotional, physical, relational and spiritual growth needs, and which moves them toward a life of faith together in their marriage, family life, and in their witness in the church and community.  Family Life Ministry is designed to build marriages and families toward God’s design and the definition and instruction in His Word, and toward a life-giving relationship with Jesus Christ that makes Him the Lord of marriage and family life every day for the glory of God.

Family Life Leadership

The Family Life Leadership Team of Eagle Christian is a group of passionate and concerned Christian leaders who are committed to building godly families, programs that build marriages and give parents tools to raise a Christ-centered family, activities that are family friendly and focused on fellowship with other families here at ECC, and the development of Family Life ministry tools that equip the family from a Christian world view perspective to follow God’s Word and build their marriage and family according to His model.
