Uniting Church & Family in the Great Commission
Discover God’s mission for your family & church to spread the Gospel.
God is always on the move, building His Church and advancing the Gospel through the generations. One of the ways He has been powerfully moving around the world during the past 30 years is in the area of family ministry. The Holy Spirit has awakened church leaders and parents to the essential need for ministry, worship, prayer, and Scripture—not just at church, but in our homes.
God created the institution of the family and the institution of the local church with distinct purposes. Both exist for the glory of God and the spreading of the Gospel. Visionary Church seeks to reclaim the simple, transformational, and global mission revealed in Scripture for both the church and family.

God has created two fundamental institutions to advance His Gospel and build His Kingdom in the world—the church and the family. At the heart of this movement is uniting the church and the family in the Great Commission.
