Practical tools to equip parents to take the lead in the discipleship of their children. Participants will come away with a greater sense of their own calling and spiritual authority, a simple framework for discipleship, and spiritual formation plans tailored to each child, based on age and spiritual stage.
You may have heard Fuller Youth Institute’s statistic that roughly 50% of young people today walk away from the church after they graduate high school. That is the equivalent of a coin toss. As parents, and as leaders in the church, this statistic should deeply bother us and spur us to action. Personally, I'm not willing to accept this fate for our kids without a fight.
A core principle of the discipleship and spiritual flourishing of children is that the primary authority for this task rests with the parents. Discipling children in families has always been a key strategy in God's redemptive plan, and this strategy is especially critical at this particular moment in history. But many parents feel disempowered, insecure, and lost in this journey.
First Steps is exactly what it sounds like : a space for YOU to take your first - or next - steps in helping your kids to walk the way of Jesus for the rest of their lives.
It is rare to find someone who communicates the complex nature of spiritual formation, leadership, and discipleship with her amount of clarity and effectiveness. Sarah’s passion fuels her extraordinary gift of teaching and coaching. This has especially been the case for parents in our community. Sarah not only provided profound insights for faith formation in the home, but also provided parents tools for changed lives and homes.
