Family Teams Weekend is unlike any workshop or Christian conference you’ve ever experienced. This is not two days of just marriage encouragement, parenting tips, or inspirational talks. It’s where we pull back the curtain and introduce an entirely new way to think about and lead your family as a team on mission. These two days will combine incredible epiphanies and paradigm shifts with stuff that is so practical and immediately actionable the day you get home. You will go through various exercises with your spouse that are guaranteed to send you back different, activated, and equipped. So, 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.
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. 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 led 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
Jefferson and Alyssa Bethke are the New York Times bestselling authors of Jesus > Religion, It’s Not What You Think, Love That Lasts, To Hell With The Hustle, and Satisfied. 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 kids Kinsley, Kannon, and Lucy.

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.
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 hundreds of other 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 it also gives you space to process and ask direct questions and get immediate feedback.
YES! While the main topics we’re covering are the same as previous years, we encourage couples to return! So, even if you’ve been living in the “family teams” concept for a while, the workshops will give you a chance to revisit and level-up your family’s mission, vision, and rhythms.
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 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 sometimes think. Also the sessions and exercises will be beneficial as well as give clarity and tons of things to take home for those without kids.
