The Biblical Parenting conference is designed to equip this generation of parents in the battle for the hearts, minds and souls of the next generation—their children. This event will help parents understand the cultural realities of today and how to prepare our children to walk in the truth in a world that rejects Christ.
What is the goal of parenting? The world encourages parents to raise happy, healthy kids, but the Bible encourages us to nurture the faith of children so they treasure Christ. Dr. Josh Mulvihill will teach you how to develop a biblical foundation to reach and disciple your children to maturity in Christ. In addition, you will be given practical methods to help children grow in their faith in Christ.
Available as a single seminar, full day conference, multi-day conference, or preaching in Sunday services.
