Who we are: Vida en Familia is FamilyLife in Latin America. Latin America consists of 20 countries and 13 dependencies, with a total population of over 626 million. Vida en Familia has 571 volunteers (including 143 trained speakers) in 19 countries.
The Challenge: The concept of marriage and family is quickly disappearing in Latin America. We have an entire generation that has grown up without an example of what it means to live in a covenant relationship. They have no idea how to have a successful marriage, and much less, do not even think of it as necessary.
Our goal is to help each congregation become a marriage and family equipping center for the community. Beginning with the marriages of the pastors and leaders, we minister to their families and equip them to engage in marriage discipleship in their own communities.
How we do it: We have a growing library of proven, biblical resources in Spanish, as well as a series of effective vision and training modules that equip leaders to launch, develop, and mature a FamilyLife ministry in the context of their own church and country.
Where YOU come in: We want to help you support your missionaries, and your local pastors and ministries in Latin America, as well as your Hispanic ministries in the US. Our ministry is to help you strengthen your ministry! We have put together a brief FAQ for short-term missions teams to Maximize Your Work with Vida en Familia.
