Our families represent the amazing diversity of both Chicago and The Moody Church. They come from varied ethnicities, different economic and educational backgrounds and varied family and faith histories. As a result, it is a very rich social and spiritual environment in which families from all over Chicagoland grow in faith and practice.

The primary focus of Family Ministries is to help parents both understand and fulfill their biblical duties to spiritually lead and nurture their children as gifts from God.  Psalm 127:3; Deuteronomy 6:5 - 9; Ephesians 6:1, 4.  While our Youth and Children’s programs provide a great deal of fun and spiritual training we believe that moms and dads are most critical in the faith development of their children.  Working collaboratively with parents, the staff and leadership of the Family Ministries, Youth and Children’s areas seek to nurture and encourage the entire family.  And, our doors are always open to kids and teens and their moms and dads regarding any concern or question.
