The data says it all...

of adult children never
leave home
of young adults have zero
financial literacy

of high school graduates
leave their formative faith
of parents say their
child's behavior is a reflection
of their own

When 69% of parents say they don't have a strategy to raise their children, these numbers make sense. That's why it is imperative that you are fully equipped, trained, and empowered to be the family leaders you were meant to be. Don't run the risk of letting your children get included in these statistics. Stand up and get trained to build a family legacy you're proud of.

What is family training?

Family Training empowers you with a strategy, a framework, tools, a support system, and accountability to build a legacy you can be proud of.


Family training isn't your typical 1 or 2 day mountain-top conference or retreat type experience, it's not a class or lesson series, and it's not a marketing campaign or gimmick to get you to subscribe or buy something. Family Training is a robust, involved, and encouraging experience that helps you build the family you long for. It is a journey of integrity, accountability, and communal growth that focuses on the foundation of society - your family. By leveraging the power of Legacy Mapping and the Legacy Development System in group settings, more and more families and communities are seeing radical change and growth towards strength, unity, connection, and purpose that is shifting the course of history.

What it looks like

Families will engage in Legacy Mapping to get things started. This is a 2-night experience filled with good food and inviting conversation. Each night lasts 3 hours and will include intentional childcare. The experience will be held at Watermark OC Church - a local church in Costa Mesa, CA. After everyone has completed Legacy Mapping, the 12-week group experience will commence in the two weeks following in groups of 3-6 couples in homes of your group's choosing. During the 12-week group experience, families will engage and work through the Legacy Development workbook together as they seek to build a family legacy they're proud of. To celebrate the accomplishment of finishing the 12 week group experience, a commencement ceremony will be held to honor and commission families to be Legacymakers with a special service and gift.

Who's it for?

Family training is for all families with children still in the home, likely under 18. If you are newly married or engaged and plan to have kids, then this is for you as well.

Unfortunately this training experience is not designed for individuals or single parents as there is significant work done in the area of your marriage. We are working to bring this format of training to your communities as well.

If you are a single parent or single individual, we do offer our training on a one-on-one approach, catered to your individual needs and circumstances, with trained and licensed facilitators along with the opportunity to receive a scholarship.

How our signature programs work.

Legacy Mapping TM

Legacy Mapping is an engaging experience of discovering the unique impact your family is designed to make. With the help of a trained guide and Legacy Map Book, families are led through a 7-step process to identify a core set of Family Values, a Family Mission, and the beginning of a plan to start living it out. It is a 2-session experience, lasting three hours each - filled with good food, inviting conversation, self discovery, and in depth brainstorming.


Legacy Development System TM

The Legacy Development System is the training model used to help families learn to bring the vision they create in Legacy Mapping into reality. Using the model, you'll explore and develop the three major areas of family life; Marriage, Family Discipleship, and Living Your Legacy. Over the course of 12 weeks, families engage and work through the Legacy Development Workbook within the confines of a group dynamic. While building close-knit relationships with families pursuing the same outcome - building a Legacy you're proud of - you will be equipped, challenged, and encouraged in the development of your family legacy.

Legacy Mapping session 1


During session 1 families are led through engaging activities and inquisitive conversation over an array of delicious food. Brainstorming led by intentional questions allows families to come away from session 1 with a greater understanding of indiviual strengths and having begun to formulate their Family Values.

Legacy Mapping session 2


During session 2 families clarify rich and powerful Family Values and a focused Mission unique to your family. You will leave with a vision and the beginnings of a plan to start building a family legacy that will last generations. One that your great great grandkids will be proud of.

System TM

Legacy Mapping creates the vision for your family legacy, the Legacy Development System helps you make that vision a reality. We have seen that often families have barriers that keep them from living out the legacy they want to be building.
