Kevin is available to teach a 2-3 hour family discipleship seminar to the parents in your church. An overview of this type of seminar is included below. This seminar focuses on the application of Deuteronomy 6, Ephesians 6:4, and other Bible passages that command parents to disciple their children.
Pricing for these seminars is flexible, but normally includes coverage of travel costs from Hampton, VA and a love offering.
THREE TRUTHS ABOUT CHILDREN AND GOD:
- Children generally follow in the faith footsteps of their parents.
- A few hours of church each week are not enough to ground children in the gospel.
- Children are more likely to remain in the faith through a partnership of church and home.
Why: Children Need It
Many parents “outsource” the discipleship of their children to religious professionals. This course teaches parents how to reclaim their role as primary disciple-makers of their children, and the church how to celebrate parents and equip them in their role.
What: Discipleship Not Parenting
The class will not focus on parenting skills beyond what it means to disciple children and help them grow in their faith. There is a time and a place for that, but this class focuses specifically on family discipleship.
Even if you no longer have children at home, or you do not have children, this is still a fantastic opportunity for you! Maybe your grandchildren or great-grandchildren need to hear about Jesus outside of church. The course aides the development of intergenerational church life. Whether you are 18 or 88, this class is for you.
