A feature film documentary like no other
In the Month of November 2014, Focus on the Family will be partnering with Churches around the country to screen the movie: Irreplaceable. This feature-length documentary film explores answers to the important questions “What is family?” and “Does family still matter in today’s society?”
You’ll join host Tim Sisarich, former Executive Director of Focus on the Family New Zealand, as he travels the world on a quest to explore what family really means and why it’s important to humanity. While on the journey, he discovers why all humans have a yearning to be in a family and to be a part of something bigger than themselves. He also explores the forces contributing to the breakdown of family, including the decline of marital commitment, the prevalence of “anything goes” sexuality, and the rise of fatherlessness.
Why Is It Important?
Because Family matters
Unfortunately, the word “family” has all but lost its meaning in our modern cultural landscape. And the fallout has been significant. Divorce. Crime. Poverty. Addictions. Abuse. Our attempts to redefine and reimagine the family only make these problems worse, not better. When the family is weakened, society suffers.
But strong families make the world a better place. And that’s what Irreplaceable is all about. The documentary is timely and provocative, challenging audience members to take a closer look at their own families and to consider what can be done to make the family stronger.

Follow up to the screening
Following the movie “Irreplaceable” we will be launching a DVD based small group curriculum called “The Family Project”. The Family Project will help families understand their personal significance in God’s great plan, equipping them to live with an eternal perspective and model God’s design for family to their peers, their communities – and to the world around them.
This kit includes 12 small-group study sessions on 5 DVDs with topics ranging from marriage and sexuality, family relationships and how families can thrive and serve God. We aim to make this available through Christian Bookstores nationwide as well as through our own Bookstore. This is a great resource that combines information with inspiring stories and practical tools to help 21st-century families thrive.
Please contact us with any questions or queries you may have concerning the screening or The Family Project.
We appreciate your continued support for the Family in South Africa.[/two_third]
