    Our Purpose

    Ultimately, we believe that the purpose of life is to know and glorify God through an authentic relationship with His Son, Jesus Christ. This purpose is lived out first within our own families then extended, in love, to an increasingly broken world that desperately needs Him.

    Through our radio broadcasts, websites, simulcasts, conferences, interactive forums, magazines, books, counseling and much more, Focus on the Family equips parents, children and spouses to thrive in an ever-changing, ever-more-complicated world. If you feel there is a specific way we can help your family, or if you'd simply like to know more about us, please browse our website or call us toll-free at 1-800-A-FAMILY.

    Somewhat anxious. Always authentic. Hosted by author and speaker Shelby Abbott, Real Life Loading… is a mashup of biblical truth, personal authenticity, cultural awareness, and straight-up humor. Who is Shelby? I am a Philly-based author, speaker, and campus minister who digs my wife, my daughters, sneakers, vinyl, movies, authenticity, and a healthy dose of positive sarcasm. Most of all, I'm wild about Jesus and His ability to change everything about life.

  • Boundless

    Lisa Anderson


    Lisa Anderson is the director of Boundless and young adults at Focus on the Family and hosts The Boundless Show, a national radio program and podcast. She loves connecting with single young adults and strategizing how to better equip them for life, relationships and a faith that goes the distance; she does not love managing budgets or signing contracts, but realizes that’s part of her job, too. Lisa can often be heard at conferences and on radio and TV, getting worked up about dating, relationships, faith and hip-hop. She grew up in San Jose, California, is a graduate of Trinity International University in Chicago, and spent a good chunk of her life in media relations before joining Boundless. She runs to counterbalance her love of pastries and chicken tikka masala, and often quotes her mom, who’s known to say outrageous things. 

  • Breakpoint

    John Stonestreet


    The vision of BreakPoint and the Colson Center for Christian Worldview is a revived Church renewing culture and awakening the world to Truth.

    "In an increasingly hostile, secular culture, Christians are faced with issues and choices we’ve never had to deal with before. BreakPoint is here to help believers of every denominational background develop a robust Christian worldview—seeing, understanding, and engaging the world from a biblical perspective." - Chuck Colson

    The teachings of Christ, given to us in Scripture and taught and applied to human culture by the likes of Paul of Tarsus, Augustine, Calvin, C.S. Lewis, and Martin Luther King, Jr., have profoundly shaped Western Civilization and the course of world history. BreakPoint and the Colson Center for Christian Worldview seek to equip and train modern Christians

    First Person, a weekly, 24 minute radio program, was created out of a simple desire to pass along to you the “short stories” of people whom I bump into every week as I host a variety of radio projects. FIRST PERSON will give listeners an opportunity to hear testimonies firsthand, learning how God works through people to build His Kingdom. Some of the guests will be names you recognize. Others you will not. But all will teach you something about trusting Jesus Christ more fully with your life.

  • Todd Friel


    The great news is: God has a plan to save wretches. That is what Wretched Radio is all about.

    Who is Wretched? For starters, the apostle Paul is wretched (Romans 7:24). But Paul is not the only wretch the song refers too. The Bible says that everyone is wretched (Romans 3:23). Like no other Christian television broadcast, "Wretched" focuses on proclaiming the Good News for wretches. Youth and adults love the engaging, conversational, spontaneous, highly produced delivery of "Wretched". Fast paced, energetic, topical, theological and fun, "Wretched" dives into the news of the day from a Christian perspective. But " Wretched" doesn't just talk about today's news, "Wretched" also discusses old dead guys.Like no other program, "Wretched" artfully weaves between contemporary and classic topics.
