There’s a direct link between being raised in a family with a mom and dad present and a commitment to faith, according to the president and founder of Communio, a nonprofit that equips churches to work for the renewal of healthy relationships, marriages, and the family.

“Many pastors don’t know that 80% of everybody sitting in the pews on Sunday morning come from a home where mom and dad stayed continuously married,” says Communio’s J.P. De Gance.

After working in public policy and politics in Washington, D.C., De Gance says he began to see that “so much of what’s going on wrong in our country flows from the collapse of family and faith.”

He started Communio to come alongside churches to help them identify how they can foster healthy families and marriages, and to equip singles with the tools to create those thriving relationships in the future, with a goal toward furthering the Gospel in America.

De Gance joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to explain why an American revival of faith requires a restoration of the family.
