Our Vision

Boundless is an award-winning ministry of Focus on the Family with the goal of helping young adults grow up, own their faith, date with purpose and prepare for marriage and family. Through articles, a group blog, a weekly podcast and the power of community, we challenge 20- and 30-somethings to reject society's low expectations and live biblically and intentionally in all things, including relationships. For more about our vision for this generation, see The Big Picture.

Our Team

Lisa Anderson

Lisa Anderson

Lisa Anderson is the director of Boundless and young adults at Focus on the Family, and hosts The Boundless Show  podcast.  She loves connecting with single young adults and strategizing how to better equip them for life, relationships and a faith that goes the distance; she does not love managing budgets or signing contracts, but realizes that's part of her job, too. Lisa can often be heard at conferences and on radio and TV, getting worked up about dating, relationships, faith and hip-hop. She grew up in San Jose, California, is a graduate of Trinity International University in Chicago, and spent a good chunk of her life in media relations before joining Boundless. She runs to counterbalance her love of pastries and chicken tikka masala, and often quotes her mom, who's known to say outrageous things.

Joy Beth Smith

Joy Beth Smith

Joy Beth Smith is the editor of Boundless. She hails from Charleston, SC, but she’s left pieces of her heart in Lynchburg, VA, Nashville, TN, and Chicago, IL. Joy Beth is passionate about connecting with other singles, and with the abundance of faulty theology surrounding singleness, marriage, and dating, she hopes to contribute to the ongoing conversations on these issues. Joy Beth enjoys writing, reading, and coffee drinking, and you can often find her lurking in the corner of a local coffee shop pretending to read while shamelessly eavesdropping.



Our Values

1. We believe that all people are of infinite value, regardless of age, development, appearance or ability.

2. We believe that marriage is the foundation of family life, and that God's design for marriage is a relationship where both husband and wife are committed to loving and caring for one another for a lifetime.

3. We believe children are a gift from God, and thrive best in a home where both mother and father are committed to raising them with love, intention and care.

4. We believe sex is given by God as an expression of love to be shared and enjoyed exclusively between a husband and wife.

5. We believe that Christians have a responsibility to promote truth and social policy that improves the strength and health of the family, as God designed.

6. And we believe that parents should aspire to model for their children how to humbly follow the teachings and spirit of Jesus at home and in the community.
