FAMILYHOME VISION - Discover new sources of strength and draw on them -
What is a FAMILYHOME?
In FAMILYHOMES you will have the opportunity to share daily life with Christian families – connected with each other in an ecumenical spirit. You will find your life enriched by sharing talents, aspirations, wishes and dreams. The object of your stay is for you to gain new resources in yourself through the encounter with God and with your hosts. You will be a guest for a time in the home of your host family/ in one of the houses and will experience the "Spirit" of the house with its God-given talents.
Multiplication of Talents
Every person is made by God and equipped with diverse talents. We all have them, given to us so that we multiply them and “steward” them. One goal of FAMILYHOMES is to develop and refine these talents, share them, and thereby enrich the Kingdom of God (Math 25: ff). People with similar talents meet each other, exchange ideas, inspire each other and develop new things. . These are people with new longings who want to see changes in the world and in their lives. They want to live in an awareness of God and are open for new impulses in their lives. They look for other people with open hearts.
Our vision is to develop a world-wide network of FAMILYHOMES. That is, world-wide, FAMILYHOMES are opening their doors in faith and trust to enrich God’s kingdom here on Earth. If you share our vision, join us in prayer! Specific prayer request: Pray with us that more families would open their doors!
Any home can become part of this vision. If you would share our vision and would like to bring your house on board by founding a new FAMILYHOME you will walk through a process with us: The "new" house will visit the “mother house” and vice-versa. We will make sure that we are all on the same page spiritually speaking, and that the key principles of our vision are shared.
These key principles are:
Every FAMILYHOME will have a prayer room and at least one guest room.
You live out your everyday life in a close walk with God.
The attitude of your heart is best summed up as: Seek first the kingdom of God and everything else will be added to you.
