About the ACFRP Conference

The Adventist Conference on Family Research and Practice (ACFRP) is designed to provide professionals and family ministry leaders alike the opportunity to be exposed to best practice strategies and research in the area of family therapy, family studies, family ministry, social work and psychology in order to enhance ministry to families in the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Each year we have a theme that addresses a topic that is relevant for our emotional and mental wellbeing.

Who Should Participate? 

Family ministry leaders from local churches and conferences, professionals who work with families as educators or counselors, pastors and lay persons who have an interest in improving their own marriages and families are invited to participate.
