During our time on the road we have been asked many questions, not just about music, but often about family, marriage and raising up children of purpose. Through these conversations we have realized the need, even in our churches, for a ministry to help equip families to overcome the challenges of societal pressures, complacency, and generational sin.

We have seen God at work in so many ways. And like the story of the widow’s oil and flour found in 1 Kings 17:7-16, we have witnessed the Truth of God’s provision when we have been willing to trust Him with our all. God truly does take the little we have to offer and multiplies it, making up the difference in order that His work will be made complete. We have seen this during our years as caregivers, throughout each new season of homeschooling, and in our music ministry.

Jesus tells us in John 16:33 to “…take heart, because I have overcome the world.” We believe this hope allows us, not just to survive, but to thrive as families in the 21st century church. While we speak to some of this during our concerts, in response to the similarity and frequency of questions asked of us by those in attendance, we have developed Deliberate Family Events.

These one, two, or three day events are specifically designed to engage, equip and energize families in their God given roles and purposes. Deliberate Family Events include corporate worship, topical sessions (chosen by the host from the list below), and a Frye Family Band concert.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″ css=”.vc_custom_1678917459344{padding-right: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;}” col_inner_shadow=”box_shadow_enable:disable|shadow_horizontal:0|shadow_vertical:15|shadow_blur:50|shadow_spread:0|box_shadow_color:rgba(0%2C0%2C0%2C.35)” col_inner_shadow_hover=”box_shadow_enable:disable|shadow_horizontal:0|shadow_vertical:15|shadow_blur:50|shadow_spread:0|box_shadow_color:rgba(0%2C0%2C0%2C.35)”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1678917357020{margin-top: 40px !important;}”]
