Every family has hurts but those wounds that come from our family members run especially deep. Conflicts may range from daily frictions and annoyances to full-blown rage and even estrangement. We know reconciliation is at the heart of the Gospel but how do we get there? From his 25 years of family ministry, Rob Rienow will outline the steps toward peace and healing for your home!
Rob Rienow (DMin, Gordon-Conwell) sees his most important ministry as loving his wife, Amy, and partnering with her to help their seven children follow God.
In 2011, Rob and Amy launched Visionary Family Ministries, whose mission is to build the church through a global reformation of family discipleship. Through their conferences, seminars, and resources, they seek to equip and encourage parents, couples, families, and church leaders around the world. He and Amy have written several books on family relationships, including Visionary Parenting and Visionary Marriage. The Rienow family lives in the western suburbs of Chicago.
