  • Family legacy conference with randy & lesli bixby

    september 23 - 25

    "Whoever wins the family, wins the culture in the end."

    -- Randy Bixby


    The breakdown of the family in America is contributing to the collapse of the culture. But God is moving to restore families to His original design -- and reshape culture from the inside out! The Family LegacyConference is a fun, interactive, and powerful 12-hour equipping event where you and your family will... 

    • HAVE AN ENCOUNTER WITH GOD, THE FATHER OF FAMILY LEGACY. Your family will hear from God; experience healing from past pain, conflict, and misunderstanding; be transformed in how you think; understand your family's unique design from God; and gain clarity of how to do family and grow toward your family destiny. Your children will receive a model to do the same for their families -- establishing your Family Legacy! 
    • RECEIVE A PLAN TO DO FAMILY AS GOD DESIGNED. You and your family will come away with an in depth understanding of how to build your Family Legacy by following six essential practices. 
    • GAIN TOOLS TO WORK THE PLAN. You will have an experience of select modules and tools and be equipped to use them as you lead your family, live your legacy and shape culture.


    Schedule

    • Friday, September 23: 6:30pm - 9pm
    • Saturday, September 24: 8:30am - 12:30pm; 1:30pm - 5:30pm; 7:30pm - 9:30pm

Consider an offering over and above your registration fee to bless another MDCC family.
