For more than 43 years, our Little Rock, Arkansas-based ministry has been dedicated to strengthening marriages and families through biblical resources, radio and events. What started as marriage and family training for Cru staff members grew into an international ministry with more than 3 million people attending events, 1.6 million weekly radio listeners, and distribution of resources in more than 100 countries.
Yet, there is still much to be done. We are as committed as ever to our mission and vision that every home might be a godly home, and families are facing more challenges than ever before. At FamilyLife, we truly believe that changing the world starts one home at a time. In order for FamilyLife to help reach every family, we need to position and mobilize our resources and people to become a field-focused ministry, equipping families to live out the Great Commission in their neighborhoods.
Therefore, in the summer of 2020, FamilyLife will be relocating its headquarters to Cru’s world headquarters in Orlando, Florida.
Moving to Cru headquarters will provide the space, technology, and global communications—the infrastructure and the atmosphere—to accelerate the effort to impact every home. The Orlando property houses several Cru ministries and provides access to global partners with whom we can collaborate to better understand and engage families. Orlando also offers a strong candidate pool as we expand and recruit people to join us on this important mission. Co-locating with Cru also decreases our facility operating costs, allowing us to reallocate funds to significantly expand our family-to-family impact.
We are honored by your partnership with FamilyLife, and ask for your prayers as we steward the ministry and care for our staff through this transition.
FamilyLife is proud that Little Rock has been such an integral part of our history. We are grateful for the kindness and support the Little Rock community has shown us these past four decades.
