The Family Experience is designed to help parents strategically pass down their faith to their children in an annual ceremony.

We’ll give you the tools you’ll need to carry out a Family Experience each year including:

  • A Planning Guide to walk you through the resources and the actual ceremony.
  • 3 Videos explaining the why and how of each Family Experience.
  • Kick Starters for Biblical family discussion time to lead up to the experience.
  • Each year we’ll focus on the biggest milestone for the year and give you the tools to make this milestone one to remember.
