Biography of Founders
The Apostolate for Family Consecration was founded by Jerome F. and Gwen C. Coniker, who were married on August 15, 1959. Today they have 13 children (one with the Lord) and 52 grandchildren.

As a family, they grew increasingly concerned with the erosion of the Christian values all around them. As parents, they saw the negative peer pressure that threatened to weaken the faith and morality of their children. Their neighbors were becoming more and more isolated from God and from each other.

Consequently, they felt a call to grow closer to God and to seek His wisdom for keeping their family together and helping others.

On September 3, 1999, the "Daily Catholic" conducted a survey of 23,455 prominent Catholics, who nominated 728 candidates for the "Top 100 Catholics of the 20th Century." Voters chose as the 70th selection the team of Jerry and Gwen Coniker.
