The Story of Family Tree
Bob and Nancy met at Cana Community Church in 1982 and were involved in education and music ministries for the homeless and in prisons. They married in 1985. Nancy began a career as a teacher in special education, and Bob ran a local 2nd generation Tree Service business, called The Family Tree. They began homeschooling their three children who were born between 1986 and 1990.
In 1999 they followed through on a vision creating Family Tree Ministries and Private School to continue their calling for evangelism, edification and education including supporting families to educate their children in a "Parent Directed Education" model, a term first introduced by Nancy in a Florida senate education committee in the early 2000's and widely adopted statewide and nationally to describe the "private homeschooling" model.
Today, they are joined in their efforts part-time with their son Robert "Noah" who inspires others with all original music and efforts to help the homeless, and their two daughters, Leah and Shaina who contribute in areas of art and media communications as they raise their children in families of their own.
