Swing Hard, in Case You Hit It!
Friday 10:45-11:45 – Room 384
Sam is going to share our vision of what we thought scripture taught, concerning the Christian family. Our highest calling as fathers is to “train up child in the discipline and instruction of the Lord” Ephesians 6:4 ESV. This training was based on our family philosophy, and it was form these four points:
- Start early
- Teach fundamentals
- Protect their environment
- Practice, practice, practice
We patterned our training from a sports perspective.
The Making of Champions
Friday 3:15-4:15 – Room 384
Based on the assumption that someone will train your children, we believe that it is the calling of the parents. Our workshop will describe how we carried this out.
Jenny will share our family history and who we are as people. She will tell how she carried our vision to train up warriors’ for the kingdom of God. We hope that our story will inspire you to have a vision to raise up champions.
