The battle for the family is heating up in America.

It seems on almost every front there is another marriage that has ended in divorce and the seeds of destruction have been planted in yet another generation of abandonment, addiction, abuse and adultery. One in five home owners in America has been behind in their mortgage payments in the past year, only adding more stress and pressure to what most families are already feeling. What is a pastor to do? I am sure in the past week you and your staff have had to counsel several marriages that are struggling, help a single parent who is feeling overwhelmed in raising her children and some try and help families in your church that our facing some difficult financial challenges.

For over 20 years Craig and Jan Hill through Family Foundations International have been fighting to restore the “Family Mountain” by providing Ancient Paths seminars that have been healing hearts and transforming families around the world.

Recently in response to the outcry that we are hearing from pastors and church leaders, Family Foundations has put together a Pastor’s Toolbox filled with free resources and tools that can help you to restore marriages and equip families to bless their children. To get their finances in order so that they can prosper and properly support their families and the kingdom outreaches you want to do in your community.

Family Foundations tools were birthed from the frustration of a pastor’s heart to see more people healed, matured and released into effective ministry:

We are committed to partnering with churches to re-establish in families the biblical foundations of blessing that cause life to work and people to prosper from one generation to the next.

In order to help you understand more about how these kinds of results are achieved, we have created this online Pastors Toolkit just for you. There is also information about various other seminars available to your church. You are welcome to direct any questions that you might have to our North American National Coordinators,

We look forward to the opportunity to serve you in any way we can and help you Transform Families and Create a Culture of Blessing. Yours for the Kingdom,

Building a House of Blessing

Watch the first session (about 23 minutes) of the 7-session Blessing Generations seminar

Watch the first session (about 23 minutes) of the 7-session Blessing Generations seminar

Blessing is at the core of what Family Foundations does, so it makes sense that the Blessing Generations seminar is one of the most powerful experiences from FFI. For nearly twenty years, Craig Hill has been touching lives with the power of the father’s blessing, both healing broken hearts that never received the father’s blessing and teaching the importance of the blessing to young families.

Our passion is not to see people attend our events, but to see a culture of blessing in the churches we serve.

There are two ways to partner with FFI to create a culture of blessing in your church:

Building a House of Blessing:

The Power of Covenant in Marriage


Watch testimonies from our marriage events

Marriage is a covenant. At Family Foundations we are working everyday to heal hurting marriages, put an end to the divorce culture in the church, and make good marriages great. A Covenant Marriage Conference is an obvious choice if your church wants to see their marriages enhanced or if you want to make a stand against the culture of divorce.

Our passion is not to see people attend our events, but to see a culture of blessing in the churches we serve.

FFI’s Covenant Marriages Conferences are a powerful experience for married couples. The teaching includes an understanding of covenant as God views it and practical tools that couples can begin to use immediately. The weekend experience makes good marriages stronger and gives hope and help to those who are struggling in their marriage relationship.

For those pastors looking for a marriage experience that will transform the hearts of your couples we have trained Coordinators that can host a DVD based CMC conference. If you would like to host a larger CMC of over 100 couples we would recommend a live conference with Craig Hill and our other guest speakers.

Building a Strong Financial House

Watch the first session of the Financial Foundations seminar (46 minutes)

Times are tough, maybe as tough as they’ve ever been in the lives of the people in your church. That’s why it’s important that you provide the people you minister to a solid foundation of practical wisdom and biblical principles when it comes to money. At FFI, we’ve been helping people use their money wisely and address the root issues that cause money mismanagement for more than a decade.

FFI pairs practical financial wisdom with ministry to the heart issues that cause people to make bad decisions with money.
