"The speakers and variety of topics were amazing! I learned so much and I really liked the true life application scenarios discussed. I am blown away, stunned and forever changed!!" 
- Chris 

"I would like to congratulate you on organizing this seminar. It was so enriching, not only in topics but in speakers. It's the first time that I participated in something like it. Thanks!" 
- Ben

"A very big THANK YOU for the totally amazing Parenting Teens Summit. It was phenomenal. I have a 14 year old daughter and twin 11 year olds. The day after I listened to one of your speakers my eldest got a text from a friend saying she didn't want to continue living anymore and I was able to make suggestions of how she could help based on things that speaker had said. My daughter was able to help her friend and all was fine. I was able to continue the conversation with my daughter because of the amazing session by a different speaker on a similar topic.

Then, a lady who works with me spoke of finding out the day before that her 16 year old niece is pregnant and I was able to share what I had learnt from the sessions in helping her approach her. I have screeds of notes and am already using what I have learnt.

Thank you for equipping me to continue the conversation that's going to last a lifetime with my girls." 
- Jill 

"This was helpful to me as I try to understand the younger generations, prepare to relate to my grandchildren" 
- Julie
"I just want to say a HUGE THANK YOU for the Parenting Teens Summit. It sometimes feels like I'm going it alone, against the grain and pull of the world, but y'all have armed me with a ton of relevant knowledge for navigating my teens' world. Seriously, it was so good I just couldn't tear myself away. 
- Mary

"Thank you so much for all your teams work. The talks are amazing, eye opening, transforming, and empowering." 
- David

"Thanks to Axis for the interviews in the Summit. Loved that they continually asked the honest questions that many don't seem to!"

"The content I was able to view during the summit was incredible! Our son is 16 and I want him to be able to use this with his own children someday. Thank you for putting this summit together for us parents of teens!" 
- Kelly

"This was such an encouragement! I'm so thankful I was a part of this. It was truly such a gift of encouragement to persevere, to stay faithful and not grow weary in doing good." 
- Melissa

I lead a small group of high school girls at church, and have a toddler running around who will be a teenager before I know it! I really appreciate being able to hear from so many people that I admire and respect on subjects that are near and dear to my heart."

How The Summit Works
This online event will equip parents and mentors to disciple their teens into lifelong faith:
Build Lifelong Faith
We’ve assembled over 40 of the world’s most influential authors & Christian thought leaders to help you know your teen's culture, develop their heart, and lead them into lifelong faith in Jesus Christ. 

Each speaker uniquely answers the big question, "how can I most effectively parent my teens so that they can develop a lasting faith in Jesus?"
The Three Steps to Building Lifelong Faith 
Know Their Culture
 Pop Culture, SmartPhones, Social Media, and Entertainment shape Teen Culture. But do you know the messages your teen is downloading every day from these mediums? This category will equip you to know the world your teen inhabits, while  providing practical ways you can start conversations with your teen about their digital world. 
Connect the Generations
The Secret Sauce for developing lifelong faith is Inter-Generational Community! This category will help bridge the generational gap between you and your teens by discussing family communication strategies, involving grandparents in the mentoring process, and understanding teen psychology. 
Develop Their Heart
 Gender Confusion, Life, Gossip, Evangelism, The Authority of Scripture, Pornography, Leadership, Prayer, Racism, and Body Image. These are big conversation topics every parent should have with their teen. This category will help you start these conversations before they go off to college!

Is this event a good fit for me?
If you find yourself in one of the following categories, this event is good fit for you:

It's Coming Too Quick! For Parents of Pre-Teens: You're preparing for the teen years. It's coming very quickly and you want to be ready. You're preparing your pre-teens to be teens who will grow into God-loving, Earth-renewing, responsible adults. This Summit will give you great preparation for how to start cultivating thoughts and habits for the near future when your pre-teens will become teens and beyond. This Virtual Summit can help you now.

Ahhhh, It's Here! Please Help Me Now. For Parents of Teens: The teen years are right now. It's not too late. This is the perfect time to foster conversations on the most important topics, adjust habits, and build disciplines for spiritual growth and deep relationship with God. This Virtual Summit was made for you.

I Love My Grandkids! For Grandparents: Grandparents are the secret weapon in the building lifelong faith in the next generation. You care deeply about your grandkids and have the resources, time, and relational platform that their parents may not have. Your grandkids want you to speak into their lives. Your experience, love, and devotion can do wonders for your grandchildren's spiritual development. This Virtual Summit is perfect for grandparents of pre-teens and teens.

I Want to Do My Part! For Mentors, Teachers, and Pastors of Pre-Teens and Teens: Many new studies are showing the value of involvement and mentorship from other adults than parents and grandparents. Other adults than parents speaking into teen's lives and modeling Christ from a different perspective can play a profound role. Let's be that community to surround the parents around us and support them in the raising of the next generation.
