Hope for the Home
Welcome and thank you for visiting
FOR THE HOME. This web site is presented by the Jerry
Drace Evangelistic Association and is the result of several years
of listening, speaking and writing on the family and the many facets
which that word entails. Intact families. Single parent families.
Separated families. Traditional families. Nuclear families. Blended
families. Inside each of these components we have husbands and fathers,
wives and mothers, babies and children, adolescents and teenagers. We
have brothers and sisters, stepbrothers and stepsisters, stepfathers and
stepmothers. Indeed, the word family which is taken from the Latin word
"familia" meaning household, has taken on increased
significance in the twenty-first century.
HOPE FOR THE HOME is
a week end conference designed to help the pastor in his ongoing
challenge of ministering to the most important unit of society - the Family.
Since 1975 Jerry Drace has served as an evangelist to churches throughout
the United States and numerous international countries. He has served pastors in mega churches and mission churches. Dr. Drace has
listened to these men of God who have shared that one of their greatest
meeting the needs of those individuals who comprise - the Family.
HOPE FOR THE HOME was
created to effectively minister to nine major groups which come under
the umbrella of - the Family. Through the preaching on Sunday and
the specialized sessions during the weekend Dr. Drace and his wife,
address the concerns of : Married Couples, Senior Citizens, Mothers of
Teenagers and Children, the Divorced, Teenagers, Single Young Adults,
Parents of Teens and Preteens, Husbands, Wives, and the Church Family.
HOPE FOR THE HOME could
be exactly what your church or community needs. It is designed for
both the local church and a community wide effort. It is cross cultural
in its appeal and nondenominational in its presentation. The theme for
the conference is, "Unless the LORD builds the house,
they labor in vain who build it," Psalm 127:1. If you have
families who need encouragement, it would be our joy to hear from
