PARENT SEMINARS

Join us throughout the year as we offer a few different opportunities for parents, grandparents and caregivers to come together with a shared intention to continue to understand youth culture and how it impacts kids today. 
We believe that there is the potential for a beautiful partnership between parents and youth leaders as we seek together to impact a new generation to become stronger Christ-followers with a clear grasp on their identity, their faith, their relationships and God’s Word.

A Chicken’s Guide to Talking Turkey with Your Kids About Sex
by Dr. Kevin Leman & Kathy Flores Bell
 
Parents often imagine their kids to be nonsexual until their wedding night. The truth of the matter is that we’re sexual from day one. What are you going to communicate to your kids about this, knowing that they are sexual creatures today? Your kids need you to talk with them about sex. No one else will do. They’ve been discovering their sexuality since the day they were born, but they need you to help them deal with the changes and challenges of puberty. Those conversations that are so vital for your children’s health and happiness don’t have to be difficult if you’re prepared. A Chicken’s Guide to Talking Turkey with Your Kids about Sex helps you build a strong, trust-filled relationship with your son or daughter to prepare you for the intimate talks you need to have when “the changes” hit. And because every child grows in a unique way, this book tells you what to teach but lets you determine when.
Spiritual Parenting
by Michelle Anthony
 
It”s hard enough to train kids to behave, but good behavior isn’t what Jesus calls for in the Bible. He wants hearts and souls that are shaped in vibrant faith and love toward God and others. In Spiritual Parenting, Dr. Michelle Anthony places the dependence upon God for our child and calls the reader to a heart posture of obedience and faithfulness. The end goal is a vibrant faith that is passed on from one generation to another. Parents are, by the power of God”s Spirit, to obey and depend on God in order to create an environment God can use to beckon our kids to Him. Isn’t it time to embrace this simple, but revolutionary concept?
