FamilyLife Canada had its humble beginnings in 1988 in Edmonton, Alberta when John and Ev Baerg began hosting Weekend to Remember conferences using video tapes of Family Life USA conference speakers. (Family Life USA had begun operation ten year earlier in 1978.) Video tapes were replaced with trained, outstanding speakers a few years later.
Since its inception, tens of thousands of couples have attended FamilyLife Conferences in various locations across the nation. In addition FamilyLife Canada has assisted in the development of family ministries in other countries.
Today the ministry of FamilyLife is not limited to weekend conferences. A variety of one-day conferences have been developed, including A Day Together, Uniquely Us, and Legacy: Your 21st Century Parenting Game Plan. The HomeBuilder network and web ministry are also currently being developed to mobilize and equip couples to bring encouragement, advice, coaching and hope to families from coast to coast. FamilyLife also produces and distributes quality parenting and marriage resources for individuals, couples, parents and churches.
FamilyLife Canada, a division of Power to Change Ministries, (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ, Canada) is headquartered in Langley, BC.
