Equipping Families to Walk in Truth
The Family Driven Faith Conference is a lifechanging event for families. There is true liberation in knowing that the gospel offers hope for our homes. In an age when men don't know the first thing about being husbands and fathers' and women are confused about their roles as wives and mothers, there is a need for clarity and truth.
God's word is not silent on these issues. This conference offers sound, biblical, gospel-centered help and hope for those desiring to lead their families to walk in truth. Attendees are challenged, encouraged, equipped and renewed as they walk through the problem on day one and the solution on day two.
One Pastor's Story
"In our coed Sunday School classes of ages 20-something to 30-something, [the FDF] conference was all that was talked about! I have never seen such a fire in our parents in any church in all my life. Amazing! There was repentance and tears throughout the conference from more than one person in our group. One mom, considered a "misfit" by most standards, went home and repented to her whole family. Her second oldest told her that she (the child) had been rebelling against her (the Mom) and against God because she (the child) had seen that what happens at church was different than what happens at home. The mom said, I know and I need to ask your forgiveness. They have already begun a family worship time."
Getting Our House in Order
This session opens the eyes of the participants to the contemporary tragedy in evangelicalism. We are losing a generation. Teens are abandoning the church at alarming rates, birht rates are plummeting and less than 10% of professing evangelicals have a biblical worldview. This 'perfect storm' has the modern American church on a collision course with apostasy.
Before we can do right, we must learn to think right. We all act in accordance with what we believe. Unfortunately, many Christians believe things about marriage, family and children that are grossly unbiblical. As a result we simply live for today with no thought for the consequences to coming generations. Once we grasp a multi-generational vision the pieces begin to fall into place.
Family Discipleship 101
What is your plan for discipling your children? This is a question most Christian parents cannot answer. What's worse, they have never been asked. We must have a plan for walking with our children, teaching them, and encouraging them to walk with God. We all have an academic plan (what classes they need to take, what schools they should attend, ,what grades they should make); it is simply tragic that the spiritual equivalent is largely non-existent.
This session provides biblical tools for walking our children through the discipline/training phase, the catechism phase, and the discipleship phase as we prepare to launch them into the world.
Introduction to Family Worship
In two hundred years we have gone from a time when family worship was the norm in Christian homes to a time when nine out of ten Christian parents cannot tell you what the term means.
Our homes should be places where Christ is worshipped on a daily basis. If we truly believe that he is central to all of life, then our homes must reflect that in the way we spend our time.
In this session attendees will learn how to start a simple, powerful, life-changing practice that will turn ten to fifteen minutes a day into multi-generational impact. The final session is the launching pad for the 28-day follow-up to develop biblical family habits.
