Welcome to the Boone Center for the Family

Helping communities build stronger, healthier relationships.

The Boone Center for the Family helps communities within churches, academic institutions, and other Christian organizations by providing trainings and resources to empower the communities' leaders. We rely on partnerships with donors to create and disseminate our programs, and we are grateful for all those who allow us to circulate our resources to a variety of audiences, including often under-resourced groups.



The downloadable RelateStrong | Leadership Series eBook empowers church leaders to discuss with their congregations often challenging and demanding topics like: Addiction, Anxiety, Depression, Marriage, Parenting, Pornography, Sexual Intimacy, and Singleness.

  • Understanding Pornography Use and Secret Sin
    Ever wonder why people use pornography? Often, this behavior is triggered by feeling the desire to escape. But what’s behind the drive to escape?
  • Embracing Uncertainty and Supporting Singles in Ministry
    As you minister to singles in the pain of not knowing if marriage is on the horizon or not, it can be tempting to offer well-intended encouragement or hope that is actually not consistent with Scripture.
  • Identifying Signs of Addiction
    There are certain symptoms of addiction. Church leaders that are able to recognize these symptoms can better serve members of their congregation that may be walking through addiction.
