About the Conference

In the age of unprecedented speed, we are more connected than ever, yet our lives are more and more fragmented and our families disconnected.  How can we see God’s miracles in this environment?  We need to stop running around and see how God is working in our families. Emanuel Church invites you to make this stop and re-anchor ourselves in The Word, in communion and in Christ’s love.

Anchored Family Conference was born out of the desire and vision of the families from Emanuel Church of God in Anaheim, California to re-anchor ourselves in the midst of the challenges confronting the Christian family in this age. Our prayer is that any family, or single parent, in whatever stage they may be in their journey, will find God’s purpose for their lives and anchor themselves in Christ.

A few thoughts from families excited about the upcoming conference

"We are so excited about this conference!
I believe God is going to reveal so much about what it means to be anchored in Him!"
Druhora Family
"As a newly family of five, life has become even busier and it is more difficult to maintain the godly marriage foundation that God intends us to have. A whole weekend dedicated to our family? Yes please! "
Pichler Family
"We believe that in these current times which are still deeply affected by anxiety and fears, this conference is an opportunity for families to 'disconnect' and re-anchor in the peace and security that only God can provide."
Constantin Family
