When you reach the family, you reach the world.

The HomeWord Center for Youth and Family at Azusa Pacific University equips parents and youth with the tools necessary to build God-honoring families. Under the leadership of two experts in family ministry—Jim Burns, Ph.D., president of HomeWord, executive director of the APU HomeWord Center for Youth and Family, and renowned author and speaker; and Doug Fields, senior director for the center, writer, speaker, pastor, and leadership mentor—the center provides biblically-based resources, seminars, and conferences related to marriage, parenting, youth ministry, leadership, and more. Working alongside churches throughout Southern California and across the U.S., their goal is to help families nationwide have healthy relationships, from this generation to the next.
