Your family’s potential is our purpose.
Are you looking for ways in which you and your family can create memories, have adventures, and get connected with other RDF families? Well, you’re in the right place. Look below for details on fun social events, parenting classes, and family-serve opportunities.
The truth is that the family is one of God’s most significant forms of provision for humanity. Through the family, God provides, prepares, and purposes each of us. Our Family Matters Ministry’s desire, passion and purpose is to help grow spiritually healthy families.
So we work hard to provide…
- Engaging programs for children and students that reach into the home.
- Transformational experiences for families that inspire spiritual growth.
- Training, resources, and support that promote healthy family dynamics.
- Fun social opportunities for families that foster an extended community.
At RDF we desire is to grow spiritually healthy families. We would like to foster a new generation who have an active relationship with God, that informs their life and living.
We believe that to grow spiritually healthy families, parents must be equipped to be the primary nurturers of their kid’s faith (Deuteronomy 6), that the faith community needs to play a supportive role in this endeavor (Ephesians 4), and that we must remain dependent on the Holy Spirit to bring about spiritual growth and formation when and as he chooses (Philippians 2:13).
So now that you know where we are coming from, we hope to see you soon at our next on fun social event, parenting class, and/or family-serve opportunity!

INTENTIONAL PARENTING SEMINAR
Sunday, June 2 | 3-6PM | Fireside Room | $10/person ($15/couple) | Registration coming soon!
No matter how good their intentions, all parents at times resort to quick-fix parenting: things we do to stop a kid’s negative or annoying behavior. Quick-fix parenting may temporarily ease a parent’s stress level, but it is not a good long-term strategy for parenting.
Intentional Parenting is the opposite of quick-fix parenting. It is a way to raise children to become healthy, independent young adults. It’s based on solid principles which, applied over time, actually result in less-stressed parents and happier, better-adjusted, and more successful kids. Intentional parenting means you’ve got more than good intentions; you’ve got a plan.
THRIVE MARRIAGE COACHING
THRIVE Marriage Coaching is designed to help any marriages breakthrough. In life we can get stuck in relational patterns which over time leads to a survival mindset, which is actually a mindset of lack and limits, which leads to more of the same. This is the breakdown that sometimes occurs, just before a breakthrough. Many couples feel like they are miles away from this breakthrough, but in truth they are often only a few honest, humble words and steps away from thriving again. When we thrive there is margin and plenty, which also leads to more of the same. Together I believe we can move from merely surviving, to thriving.
