“Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it..."

Gen 1:28

God calls every Christian household to be faithful in marriage and fruitful in parenting, but rapid cultural shifts have left many feeling listless and disoriented. Let’s change that.

Join likeminded families as we explore God’s vision for how households shape society.

At the Fierce Families Conference, you’ll be encouraged, challenged, and equipped to press on in the magnificent cause of Christ as a family on mission.

March around Zion, encircle her, count her towers,
consider her ramparts, tour her citadels,
 that you may tell the next generation.
For this God is our God forever and ever; He will be our guide even till death.

Psalm 48:12–14

Frequently Asked Questions

Of course! Kids are encouraged to attend. It’s a family conference after all! 🙂

Yes! If they need a seat, they need a registration. This helps us get an accurate headcount.

The pre-conference seminars are designed to give a space where we can tackle topics specific to men and women. All conference attendees are welcomed to attend. Because they’re earlier on a weekday, we anticipate that they will be more intimate than the main sessions.

Childcare is provided ONLY for the pre-conference seminars on Friday 8am – 12:30pm.

It costs $30/child and will be provided for kids aged 0-6 only.

Please make sure to sign up for childcare when you register for the conference.

For out of town guests, we recommend lodging near Downtown Tacoma or on South Hill. There are also local AirBNB options as well.

Please reach out to mckenna [at] fiercemarriage [dot] com with any further questions.
