Thank you for your support of our important, life-changing work.

Focus on the Family NZ is a Christian organisation with a vision for helping families, communities and society to thrive through Christ and His Gospel. Our purpose is to strengthen, defend and celebrate human dignity, marriage and the institution of the traditional family, and to highlight the unique and irreplaceable role that these play in God’s larger story of redemption.

Rather than just focusing on problems, we place a strong emphasis on seeking out and providing redemptive solutions to the issues that negatively impact marriages, families and the human person. Our ultimate desire is to empower the Church in this country with the knowledge and the tools it needs to embrace and be a vibrant living witness to the life-changing power of Christian love in action.
