“We started our stepfamily ministry in the fall. We have twenty or so couples who attend on a somewhat regular basis on Sundays and for monthly social activities…Several non-churched families attended the workshop and have started to attend the Sunday morning class. Many of our families have changed so much of what they do and how they act…Thank you so much. Marriages have been saved and even more important, some lives are being opened up by the Holy Spirit.” – Dave Williams, Canton, Ohio
