This one day seminar is for all volunteers, parents, and paid staff who are involved with children and family ministries in their local church. Carey Institute and the CBWC Children and Family Missional Network invite you to join them for an important day of resourcing, encouragement, and networking. Sherry will build upon some of the topics discussed in “It Takes a Village: Nurturing Children in Faith For a Lifetime” but it is not a prerequisite to this session.
About the Seminar:
“Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve.” Joshua’s famous challenge to the Israelites called them to be a people set apart for worshipping Yahweh amidst the false idols and distractions in the world around them. Families today continue in this clash of cultures. As Christ followers, we are to be a people set apart in the ways and purposes of God.
Does this call to holy living affect our view of children, family and parenting? Does the Biblical picture of the whole people of God really shape our understanding of discipleship and mission?
Looking to scripture as a model for authentic life as the intergenerational body of Christ, we find guidance for building our homes and churches not with a brick-and-mortar view, but with a view to Kingdom values. This seminar, through teaching, discussion and practical application will allow parents and ministry workers alike to consider a vision of holy living in our families and churches that is counter cultural, intergenerational in nature and firmly rooted in Christ.

Have you ever thought, “I wish I could understand what is going through teenagers’ minds, because they sure don’t make sense to me”? If this is you, don’t be alarmed. Recent research has shown that the human brain is not fully developed until the age of 25. This means that it is only natural that teenagers will think and act differently than you do (or more likely act without thinking). Therefore, the key to understanding teens is not in forcing them to think like adults, but rather learning how they think and then loving them by entering their world.
This seminar is for parents, teachers, pastors, youth leaders; anyone who loves and interacts with teens on a regular basis. Our hope is that you will be equipped to better understand teens in order to healthily walk alongside them as they become committed disciples of Jesus.
