The Military Stepfamily
In association with FamilyLife Blended, CRU Military Stepfamily seeks to provide practical answers to the common issues facing blended military families and to help them come to a thriving relationship with Jesus Christ. While good statistics are not available for the military community, experience shows the number of military stepfamilies far exceeds the 40% found in the general population.

“We started our stepfamily ministry in the fall. We have twenty or so couples who attend on a somewhat regular basis on Sundays and for monthly social activities…Several non-churched families attended the workshop and have started to attend the Sunday morning class. Many of our families have changed so much of what they do and how they act…Thank you so much. Marriages have been saved and even more important, some lives are being opened up by the Holy Spirit.” – Dave Williams, Canton, Ohio
