Our mission
Our Mission
To help you be the best parent possible by providing you the hope, training, and resources you need to effectively disciple your children into lifelong faith in Christ. With parenting and discipleship strategies on over 40 topics, you’ll be equipped to start conversations with your pre-teens and teens about culture, technology, politics, social media, relationships, faith, and more.
This conference focuses on three key areas of faith development:
Just as successful missionaries study a culture before going into it, effective discipleship happens when we know and understand the world our teens inhabit. The conference provides practical ways you can start conversations with your teens about their digital world and how it's influencing them.

Sometimes the biggest hindrance to discipleship is an inability to speak the same language as your teens. The Summit will help bridge this gap between you and your teens by discussing family communication strategies, involving grandparents in the mentoring process, and analyzing teen psychology.

What we love is the most important thing about us. By developing their hearts to love what's truly good, your teens will experience the flourishing that's only possible through Christ. The conference will help you see beneath the surface to underlying ideas, allowing you to have deeper, more impactful conversations before your teens leave the home.
