What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Evangelism and Discipleship

Evangelize and represent the Gospel, so that those who have not heard the message of salvation are introduced to Jesus Christ and invited to become part of His family, Christians are bolstered in their daily walk, strengthened in their Biblical worldview, and Christ is magnified in the culture.

Population(s) Served

Build strength and resilience in marriages, as we help couples prepare for marriage, understand God's unique design for their relationships, and overcome daily challenges. During this fiscal year, Focus on the Family added the National Institute of Marriage into its existing Marriage ministry programs.
