FamilyLife ministry is a specialized area of ministry within a religious organization that is focused on supporting and strengthening families within the community. The purpose of family life ministry is to provide resources, education, and support to help families navigate the challenges of life and grow in their relationships with each other and with their faith.
The specific goals of family life ministry may vary depending on the religious organization and community, but some common objectives include:
Overall, the purpose of family life ministry is to help families thrive and flourish in all aspects of their lives, including their relationships with each other, their faith, and their broader community.
At Cru FamilyLife, we understand there is a gap between the intention we have for our families and what we actually experience in life. Too often, our relationships fall short of what we desire them to be.
But this is not what we were made for. Instead, we believe God made us to live in a perfect community with Him and each other. We believe God’s word offers insight for us to bridge the gap — to make our intentions match the reality of our relationships. To that end, we create content and experiences to help families pursue what matters most and grow more fulfilling connections with God, each other, and their communities.
Cru FamilyLife exists to help families grow together and impact their corner of the world. We believe family is the greatest untapped resource for bringing good to the world.
The mission of Cru FamilyLife is to effectively develop Christ-centered marriages and families who change the world one home at a time. And it is our vision to see every home a godly home.

At Cru FamilyLife, we believe that marriage and family life are two interconnected aspects of human relationships that are essential for the well-being and flourishing of individuals and society as a whole.
Christians approach marriage (of one man and one woman) as a covenant, a relationship based on promises and a lifelong commitment, not just feelings—though love is most certainly involved. It is intentionally centered on Jesus Christ and each spouse continuously works to know, love, and obey Jesus, and to follow his example in living out their marital vows faithfully and sacrificially to the glory of God. This provides a stable and solid framework for providing mutual joy, the procreation of children and contributing to the good of society.
Family life refers to the various relationships, roles, and responsibilities that are involved in creating and sustaining a family unit. This includes relationships between spouses, parents and children, siblings, and extended family members. Family life involves a complex web of interactions and dynamics, and it requires ongoing communication, negotiation, and adaptation to changing circumstances.
Marriage and family life are interconnected because marriage provides the foundation for building a family, and family life provides the context in which individuals develop their sense of identity, values, and relationship skills.
A healthy and thriving family life is characterized by love, respect, support, and cooperation among family members and it provides a safe place where children can experience God’s love (through their parents), grow in faith, and learn how to love other people.
At Cru FamilyLife, we believe that family is important in Singaporean society, and it plays a central role in shaping the values, beliefs, and behaviors of individuals and communities. Two possible reasons for the importance of family in Singapore are:
Stability and Support: Family is the most basic unit that provides a strong foundation for stability and support for individuals in Singapore. Strong family ties help to foster a sense of belonging and community, and they provide a safety net for individuals during challenging times. A family that builds its values on Christian principles would also find strength and comfort from God through the ups and downs of life.
Parenting of children: The parents in each family unit play a critical role in teaching and training their children. Parents are responsible for teaching their children about God and His ways. Cru FamilyLife’s Art of Parenting™' video series is designed to help parents raise their children in a way that is grounded in faith, while building strong family relationships. Parents can consider equipping themselves by going through the Art of Parenting™.
At Cru FamilyLife, we believe that family is important to our society for a variety of reasons. Three possible reasons are below:
Loving our neighbor: Family provides the first and most important context for giving and receiving love. Christian parents teach children by first modeling it in the husband-and-wife relationship and how the parents treat people outside the family.
Emotional support: Family provides emotional support, which is important for overall well-being. In a close-knitted family, when individuals experience stress or challenging circumstances, they can turn to their family members for comfort and support. Family members can in turn help point each other to find their source of strength and hope in God.
Care for the vulnerable: Family is often responsible for the care of vulnerable members of society, including children, elderly individuals, and those with disabilities or chronic illnesses.
