Greetings


Welcome to the web site of Family Ministries for the Seventh-day Adventist Church in North America.

Family processes are at once the most challenging and gratifying in human experience. It is our hope and desire that our site will help you find whatever information you need in your quest to develop healthier family processes for yourself and for those you are in relationship with.  

Despite the news dominating the airwaves each day about the economic downturn, crime, wars, acts of terrorism, and unexpected natural and unnatural disasters, our sincere desire is that you and your family will experience a blessed 2014.  We encourage you with the words of Jesus:  “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.  I do not give to you as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27. 

For stronger and healthier relationships,

Claudio and Pamela Consuegra 
Directors of Family Ministries 
North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church
