About Us

Co-Grow Family Discipleship Network is here to help children enter the depths of Christ, and help parents cherish their children in order to find the depths of Christ in them, and grow in Christ for their sake.

Core Values 

We believe that God is personal and relational. We believe that God is pleased to reveal the depths and nature of God to us. 

We believe that children are not just the future of the church, they are the church.  As the body of Christ, children have every ability to experience the depths of Christ and the richness of life in the Kingdom of God. We believe that for children to realize their potential as disciples, they need their parents to support and journey along with them.

We believe that parents have a unique opportunity to find Christ in their children as they contemplate their person-hood and cherish them. We believe that parents need to hear and heed the call to fall head over heals in love with Christ for the sake of their children, and be examples of a healthy relationship of intimacy with God.
