About Us

Our history... Who we are and what we are called to do.

Our Vision and Mission.


We are an evangelistic and missionary community committed to become families empowered by the Holy Spirit to renew the face of the earth.


We strive to be God’s holy warriors, as we commit to renew the temporal order through our work in defending faith, family and life.

We are a servant to the Church, working to renew her children through every generation and throughout the world, until the Lord returns once again.


Focused on Family Renewal

For more than 38 years, we've made it our mission to bring the Good News of salvation in Jesus to the ends of the earth. Founded by Frank Padilla in 1981 as an an outreach to couples.

In this third millennium, God has called for the New Evangelization, intended to bring renewal and revival to His Church. We are at the forefront of this call. God provides the new wine of the ever-creative Holy Spirit, but there must be a new wineskin to contain it. God has prepared us through all these 38 years to be Missionary Families of Christ.

Our privilege and responsibility

Pope Francis said in October 2013, “Christian families are missionary families.” That is what we hope to be. Our name will be a great challenge for us to live out. It will be our privilege, and our responsibility.
