Azusa Pacific University and HomeWord
In response to the overwhelming needs of parents and families, Jim Burns founded HomeWord in 1985. In 2009, HomeWord and Azusa Pacific University came together as partners to form The HomeWord Center for Youth and Family. These two strong organizations, with similar values, have bonded together to become even more effective in helping families succeed.
There is an amazing stirring amongst families and leaders today toward building strong marriages, confident parents, empowered kids and healthy leaders. It’s not that family life is getting easier. Frankly, it’s more complicated than ever before. However, HomeWord is uniquely positioned on the front lines and in the trenches to equip parents and restore families that are under siege.
