National Family-Integrated Church Conference

Fri Sep 20 to Sun Sep 22


The Lord’s Church Shall Prevail!
America is in trouble – sliding rapidly away from her many long-standing Christian values. Now is the hour for the church to stand! Join with us as we hear from Family-Integrated Church leaders from across the nation about how to:
• Equip our youth, families, and churches to prevail through the gospel.
• Capture the hearts of our children through specific discipleship tools.
• Build Household Embassies that impact both church and community.
• Reform local churches to partner with householders in building strong families.

By God’s grace, Family-Integrated Churches are experiencing fruitfulness in equipping the church and retaining the next generation. Now, by God’s grace, let us continue to build our churches and families for Standing Fast through Troubled Times.

Designed for Christian leaders, church planters, parents and young adults, entire families are welcome to attend.

About the Speakers

Gregg Harris, founder of the Household of Faith movement, serves as a teaching elder at Gresham Household of Faith Community Church. He is also Director of Noble Institute for Leadership Development. Both in his role a an elder and as a nationally-known seminar speaker, Gregg consistently combines his personal experience with application from his studies at the University of Dayton in Adult Education.

Gregg's most-recent Seasons of Life seminar combines years of thought and study into one, practical strategy for life. Gregg's own household has followed this strategy for over 40 years. Gregg is the father of seven children and six grandchildren. Three of his sons - Joshua, Alex, and Brett - are now bestselling authors.* 

The Harris family was touched with sorrow in July of 2010 when Gregg's dear wife, Sono Sato Harris, passed away. In spite of this great loss, he and  his children continue on in the work she loved. You may follow the Harris Household at Noble Institute.

* Gregg’s oldest son, Joshua, is the author of I Kissed Dating Goodbye, Boy Meets Girl and Dug Down Deep. His twin sons, Alex & Brett Harris, are coauthors of Do Hard Things and Start Here.

With over 25 years of leadership in the military, business and Christian communities, Eric Burd is passionate about getting the next generation off to a fast start in fulfilling the mission of the church.

With others, Eric has been aware of ominous changes occurring in the landscape of the contemporary church. These have resulted in his deep passion to elevate the message of discipleship within the Christian family. An elder in Vancouver Household of Faith and on the boards of both the Household of Faith Fellowship of Churches and the Council for Family-Integrated Churches, Eric invests his energies in these endeavors. Praying for another Great Awakening, Eric seeks to be instrumental in rebuilding the fabric of the church so that the biblical principle of: “Fathers, teach your children” becomes foundational to every Christian household!

Residing in Battle Ground, WA, Eric and Jerry have five children and seven grandchildren. They have been married since 1975, and have been homeschooling since 1983.

Dr. Klick married his high school sweetheart, Leslie, in May of 1975. They have three children – all home educated – and ten grandchildren. Dr. Klick loves to learn and has professional designation as a CFP, a Master's in Pastoral Ministry, and Doctorates in Biblical Studies and Pastoral Ministry.
Beyond his role as senior pastor, Dr. Klick serves as a consultant with Miller Management Systems, is a teaching Fellow with Christian Discipleship Ministries, and serves on the Board of The Council for Family/Integrated Churches.
