Raising Spiritual Champions: Nurturing Your Child's heart, Mind, and Soul - Keynote

(Family Discipleship)

Raising your child is an exciting opportunity to influence a life, but it is also a daunting assignment. Parents have the God-given responsibility — and privilege — to guide the development of their children, a responsibility that cannont be delegated to schools, churches, media, or community organizations. Based on extensive national research, Barna outlines a biblical approach to raising children with seven cornerstones of a Biblical Worldview.
