Parenting Conf 2018 Banner.jpg


There are countless opinions, books, websites and blogs written about how we ought to parent our children.
And while much of what is available to us as caretakers might be good and useful, there is really only one way that is sure and guaranteed to work: God's way.

We will look at some of the foundational values and rules that God has put in place for us as parents to follow in order that we may raise children that will bring honor to God.
