FAMILIES REACHING ACROSS 2014

2nd Adventist Conference on Family Research and Practice 

JULY 17-19, 2014 - ANDREWS UNIVERSITY

 

This is our 2nd annual Adventist Conference on Family Research and Practice (ACFRP). For over 35 years, several Adventist organizations under the auspices of Family Ministries have sponsored an annual event to celebrate and educate our constituencies about the importance of ministry to families in the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The planning committee decided that, starting in the year 2013, the conference would place more emphasis on family research and practice. Therefore, the name of the conference was changed from Family Celebration Sabbath to the Adventist Conference on Family Research and Practice.

It is our hope and prayer that you will find the presentations, the conversation, the fellowship and the food enriching and satisfying. Above all, we all want to have an experience of the love of God. With Paul we pray: “May God our Father and Christ Jesus our Lord give you grace, mercy, and peace” (1Timothy 1:2) in all of your relationships.
