This Day Forward - BC Marriage and Family Conference

February 22-23, 2019 | Abbotsford, BC


This Day Forward – BC Marriage and Family Conference is…

ALL about building stronger marriages and families — both our own and those in our church and community. We invite you to take a look at our lineup of guest speakers and elective workshops. You can join us for one day or both. Let’s work together to bring help and hope to the families in our churches and communities!


Focus on Marriage

Track One: Seasons of Marriage — Since all marriages move from one season to another, FamilyLife Canada Directors, Neil and Sharol Josephson, will present practical strategies on how to identify the season you’re in and how to move to warmer places!

Track Two: The Joys and Challenges of Blended Marriage — Stepfamilies are often left to travel a difficult road without clear directions. This workshop addresses common challenges faced by remarried couples. Speaking from their own experience, Bob and Denise Dobson will help you discover fundamental steps to build strength into your blended family relationship.
