Meet The Alessi Family

“The Family Business with The Alessis'' explores the highs, the lows, and lessons learned by a strong, loving family, The Alessis, who live and work together while leading a culturally diverse church in Miami. In each episode, Steve and Mary Alessi, along with their four adult children who work with and for them - Christopher, Stephanie (Muina), Lauren and Gabrielle -  open up about real-life issues that are rarely discussed in Sunday morning service. From sharing their common, everyday struggles of parenting and marriage, to dealing with the tough topics facing our culture today, these authentic and transparent discussions cast new insight on what family is all about.
