Parenting is an incredibly important ministry. And God entrusts the primary stewardship of parenting to - yes, parents! Raising today’s children to follow Jesus is not an easy assignment, but God has given parents unique tools like parental authority based on biblical stewardship. Chap will show attendees that parents can do everything in their power (especially when children are young) to shape disciples for Christ. The teaching will include four hour-long sessions along with a valuable Q&A at the end geared specially for parents with teens.
