About Our Team
The Big God Project is based out of Hamilton, Ontario in Canada.|
The Big God Project was developed by the Family Church of Heritage Green, a congregation
of the Presbyterian Church in Canada.
Our passion for being unapologetically family-focused led us to develop
a curriculum that could be universally used to help all generations
grow a vibrant, dynamic faith together as a church family.
We hope the materials you find here will be a blessing to your church!
