Become a “Friend of Faith@Home”!

Mission Statement: “Establishing the home as the primary place where faith is lived and nurtured.”

What might it mean to you to enhance the faith growth of thousands of people around the world; to impact generations to come; and to strengthen the church?

According to the Barna Group, “More than 90% of ‘Christian households’ do not pray, read the Bible or engage in any type of family devotions or faith talk.” As a result young adults, who once attended Christian Sunday school and youth ministry programs, are walking away from the faith at an alarming rate.

As a supporter of Faith@Home ministries you are helping to shape today’s culture by impacting the lives of individuals, families and churches across the globe. What might it mean to be a person who helps influence a person’s life; a family’s life; a church’s life; to be “generationally strong” for Christ? By becoming a “Friend of Faith@Home”, you can have this influence – you can make this difference! As we celebrate the 5 year anniversary of Faith@Home, please join in supporting this powerful ministry movement.

  • “I have enjoyed the opportunity to work with Rev. Mark Holmen in various capacities over the past several years. As a former Senior Pastor, Mark has the unique ability to speak to pastors from a place of authenticity. I appreciate his vision for helping families take a proactive, intentional approach to teaching their kids the principles of biblical faith. The Faith@Home strategy provides a solid framework for churches and families around the world who are seeking effective ways to pass on a spiritual legacy to the next generation. I’m pleased to call Mark a friend and wholeheartedly recommend his work”

    Jim Daly | Executive Director of Focus On The Family

  • “It is with great ease I write about a gifted leader and communicator.  Mark Holmen uniquely blends ministry with creativity, passion and commitment.  Watching Mark over the last few years, I have seen him completely sell out to follow God’s direction with his Faith@Home ministry.  Few people would spend countless hours sitting on planes, in airports, and away from home to see others capture the intent of God’s heart.  Mark travels all over the globe with the message that easily translates to other cultures and helps churches and families make a significant difference.  I would highly recommend Mark’s work to you as some people are visionaries, some are implementers, and Mark possesses both attributes.” 

    Ron Hunter | Executive Director and CEO of Randall House Publishing

  • “Every generation benefits from leaders who challenge it to excellence.  Mark’s life experiences have equipped him to be a insightful leader who calls people to action.  His message is powerful and simple:  We need more “faith at home”.  I hope to hear Mark proclaim this message for many years to come.  I thoroughly endorse and support him in his vision to establish “faith at home” in household around the world!”    

    Ken Canfield, Ph.D. | Founder, National Center for Fathering

  • It has been fascinating to see how key influencers from several denominations responded to Mark’s message so passionately.  A dynamic influential leader called and begged to get more information or a recording because “everybody was calling saying ‘you should have been there’.  The principles Mark taught have been added to the topics being addressed at seminars, summer conferences and denominational gatherings.  We love to watch how ideas take hold and spread and it is exciting to see how Mark’s teaching struck a chord with the leaders in attendance.”  

    Hans Forrer | Willow Creek Association, Sweden

  • “We are fully endorsing your Faith@Home strategy.  Your presentations and ministry ideas have been one of the highest rated events we have had anywhere.  Whatever we can do to expand this program around the globe, we will do it. “  

    Gary Schwammlein | International Director of the Willow Creek Association

  • “Mark Holmen is able to help church leaders convert good intentions into good practices.  This is not theory, it is a hands-on solution to the challenges pastors and church leaders face in these trying times, all consistent with biblical principles and tested in the real world.”  

    George Barna | CEO of the Barna Group

  • “Pastor Holmen connects personal story, family practice of faith and biblical plan and direction to the home.  He challenges senior pastors and congregations to move into partnership with the home as the primary place to nurture faith!” 

    Dr. Dick Hardel | Former Director of the Youth & Family Institute
