The Christian life is meant to be lived in community. Life transformation and spiritual growth happen within the context of Christ-centered relationships. Nowhere is this more true than in the family.

The RBC Family Life Mentoring ministry exists to give couples, and single parents, access to the experience, wisdom, and spiritual maturity of couples who have forged successful family relationships over time.

An RBC Family Life Mentor couple is “a loving, committed, more experienced, Christian couple, purposefully investing in another couple, or single parent, to effectively navigate a journey that they have already taken.”
