What Makes the Family Teams Weekend Different?

Family Teams Weekend is unlike any workshop or Christian conference experience you’ve ever had. This is not two days of just marriage encouragement or parenting tips. Nor is it five inspirational talks about who knows what. Those are great, but not what these two days will feel like or be like. Trust us. If that’s what you’re looking for, then we’d recommend something else. If you want to turn your family upside down and take the path of changing your family’s legacy for the next 500 years, then this weekend is for you. This is where we pull back the curtain and introduce an entirely new way to think about and lead your family as a team on mission. This is where you get an actual blueprint and manual specific to your family that you can tangibly go home with. You will be going through various exercises with your spouse that is guaranteed to send you back different, activated, and equipped. So whether your new to the family teams concept or have been living in it for a while, we know this weekend is the weekend for you. But hurry up, once the 250 tickets are sold, then that’s it! Make sure to reserve your spot today, and we will see you there.


Your Hosts

The Pryors

Jeremy and April Pryor had an epiphany over two decades ago, realizing that the way we all do family in the West is mostly a failed experiment, and the Scriptures are calling us back to a bigger and better design. Since then they have been discipling, teaching, and impacting families in the greater Ohio region for years through various projects and resources–including the Family Teams Weekend, which they have led and hosted for the past few years in the Cincinnati area. They’ve spent the last 20 years building Team Pryor together and have five kids: Kelsey, Jackson, Sydney, Elisa, and Kaira. They live in a multigenerational house with Jeremy’s parents and April’s mom near Cincinnati, Ohio. They’ve founded and lead several businesses, and non-profits including Epipheo (a video production agency) Just Sew (a quilt shop), FamilyTeams.com (training content for families), 1000 Houses (a network of Cincinnati disciple-making households), and The Story-Formed Life (a discipleship training resource).



The Bethkes

Jefferson and Alyssa Bethke are the New York Times bestselling authors of Jesus > Religion, It’s Not What You Think, and Love That Lasts. Additionally, they make YouTube videos and host numerous other podcasts you can find online. They are passionate about building a multigenerational family team on mission ever since they were captured by the vision for it over seven years ago. They now comprise one half of Family Teams, alongside the Pryors, helping and equipping others out there to say no to the western experiment and yes to God’s ancient design for the family. They live in Maui with their oldest daughter, Kinsley, their son, Kannon, and their 5-month-old Lucy Hope.

Real feedback and comments from past Family Teams Weekend attendees

“This conference was probably the most practical thing we’ve done. We feel like we have tools and a clear action plan. This was so good for us and is going to be super helpful in building a strong foundation.”

“The weekend was life changing. We almost didn’t attend due to cost and time, but we are SO glad we did now.”

“The weekend definitely helped us create our vision and gave us hope in our marriage and family. It was helpful being around other families and realizing we were not alone in this.”

  • What if only one spouse can come?

    Great question! We don’t think the weekend will be most conducive to just one spouse being present since there will be various exercises and moments to do something specific with your spouse, but we also like to say that, “Two is better than one, but one is better than none.” If coming solo is your only option, and you’re hungry to gain the wisdom in the teachings and to do the exercises…we can provide you with the audio file of all sessions, as well as all the training and workshop prompts with literature to take home. We would hope you would be able to find space and time to go through all of the material with your spouse.

  • Do we have to register separately as a couple or just one person?

    Each ticket or registration is good for ONE couple (two people). So you only need to purchase and register once to allow both you and a spouse to come.

  • How is this different than some of the other resources Family Teams has put out?

    While an illustration or point might be similar, the overarching weekend and workshop will be vastly different than any course or book that Family Teams has put out. We also believe even if you have consumed or engaged with all of the Family Teams resources (or you haven’t!) there is something special about being in a room with 250 couples who also are building their multigenerational family team on mission. Workshopping together, in the same space, has a million intangibles unfolding that you simply can’t get in a course or book and also gives you space to process and ask direct questions and get immediate feedback. Also, we will be doing two different ‘tracks’ for people who are new to the family teams concept, and another track for those who are more familiar and already have the building blocks.

  • What is the schedule?

    We will release the schedule in a more detailed way as we get closer to the event via email, but know we will start Friday night with our kickoff session at 7pm EST.

  • What if we’ve already been implementing ‘Family Teams’ ideas? Is this for us?

    YES! This is actually one of the things we are most excited about–we are going to have two tracks going simultaneously during the weekend. We will all gather together for specific larger teachings, but then be splitting up through the weekend into two tracks–beginning and advanced. So if you are already implementing some things and want to take your family to the next level we have a whole track for you. This will involve more personal coaching, assessing, newer ideas, and more. So in short, yes, and you can just pick the ‘advanced’ track once the weekend starts! Note: you don’t need to do anything different upon registering. We will tell you how and what track to take once we are in the room together on Friday for the kickoff.

  • Would this be good for us if we are married with no kids?

    There certainly will be some content that will be specific to families and children, but yes we actually very much believe this event will be and can be life changing for married couples with no kids as well. The minute you get married you are a family, regardless of kids, and ‘family’ and ‘marriage’ are more intertwined than we like to think. Also the exercises and plans and sessions will be beneficial as well as give clarity and tons of things to take home for those who are just married.
