Who We Are
Minnesota Family Council (MFC) is a non-partisan, grassroots, Christian organization dedicated to strengthening the family – the bedrock of society – by advancing foundational biblical principles in churches, the media, government, and the public square throughout the state of Minnesota. We mobilize Christians to transform Minnesota’s culture so that it cherishes life, affirms religious liberty, and preserves marriage and the family.
Together with Minnesota Family Institute (MFI) and Northstar Legal Center (NLC), our educational and legal subsidiaries, respectively, MFC is uniquely positioned at the center of a coalition of likeminded national and local organizations – we can accomplish far more together, through Christ, than we can alone!
“I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him,
he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.”
What We Do
MFC serves as a catalyst for cultural transformation in three key areas:
- Preparing Leaders – Equipping Christian leaders with biblical worldview training to understand the times and effectively fight the battles that define our culture. Cultural transformation begins with leadership. Leadership of all ages and backgrounds. Leadership grounded in a biblical worldview. Leadership armed with the information and skills to influence others. MFC’s educational programs work to identify, train, and activate these leaders across Minnesota. (1 Chronicles 12:32)
- Promoting Values – Engaging the Christian community as “salt and light” in the public square to advocate for laws and policies that promote what is good and restrain what is wrong in the eyes of God. Cultural transformation requires a system of laws that remain true to the vision of our Founding Fathers, rooted in a biblical worldview. MFC’s legislative programs will not only ensure there’s a voice for timeless values at the Capitol but also engage the faith community across Minnesota to advocate on behalf of those values. (Proverbs 14:34)
- Providing Accountability – Holding elected officials accountable for their actions by informing the Body of Christ on voting records, choosing candidates according to biblical criteria, and identifying godly leaders to run for public office. Cultural transformation requires elected leaders be accountable for their actions. MFC’s “Mobilize” get-out-the-vote programs serve
as an antidote for political spin to ensure that Christians are faithful to vote, based on their faith, on Election Day. (Exodus 18:21)
“You are the salt of the earth…You are the light of the world…Let your light shine.”
