DISCOVER THE POWER OF JOY IN CHRIST AND UNLEASH THE HOPE OF THE GOSPEL
Parents of children of all ages are invited to join us for this free, live-online parent training event. This event will provide biblical teaching and practical training to confront the empty offers of impurity, expose unbiblical methods and motivations for purity, and equip parents to help their kids discover and enjoy the hope of purity in Christ. Our theme this year is “Heart Check: The Battle Begins Within” with special speakers Kevin Sauder and Jonathan Smith. Regardless of your child’s age, we invite you to join us to explore how the Gospel can shape the way our families interact with technology in a way that unleashes true hope.
Note: Renew Hope is a bi-annual event, usually for teens and their parents with breakout sessions. With this year’s event being only available online, Kevin Sauder’s plenary session will be beneficial to all parents and students. Jonathan Smith’s is primarily designed for parents with children of any age.
