All parents are invited to our Parent Summit! This event is designed to equip parents with a biblical worldview of parenting in a secular culture. We want to give parents relevant information about the challenges they face today.
We will be covering a variety of important topics. After our general session, pick two additional sessions to attend. See the full description for each session below! We hope you leave this Parent Summit feeling like CCC is a place that not only meets you in these challenges but is also a place where you can invite other parents into our resources. You were not meant to do this alone!
Registration for this event is required. The first 50 registrants will be free! After that, the event will be $10 per person or $15 per couple. If you have questions about this event, email [email protected].
DR. JOE COFFEY (LEAD PASTOR OF CCC)
In our current culture, we need more than the latest how-to strategy to be effective parents. Pastor Joe will lead the general session and discuss the importance of having a biblical worldview at the heart of our parenting. The truth is we need the gospel to shape our parenting perspective in order to move us from being reactive parents to proactive parents.
SESSION – BIBLICAL SEXUALITY
JAMIE HEWITT (CCC STUDENTS & COLLEGE DIRECTOR)
Our culture is talking about it. Kids are talking about it. Sexuality is a hot topic in today’s culture. What exactly does the Bible say about God’s design for sexuality, and how do we talk to our kids about it? Join Jamie Hewitt as he discusses sexuality, gender, and Jesus through a biblical worldview and how to start having gospel conversations with our kids around sexuality.
SESSION – TECHNOLOGY
DR. MATT KOONS (HEADMASTER AT CVCA) & SARA KOONS (CCC KIDS DIRECTOR)
In an overly saturated world, it’s important to understand the effects of technology on our children and how to navigate them as parents. Join Matt and Sara Koons as they share the knowledge, wisdom, and experience they have gained after nearly two decades of raising their four children and working in education.
SESSION – ESTABLISHING AUTHORITY + STRUCTURE IN YOUR HOME
DR. ZACH WEIHRAUCH (EXECUTIVE PASTOR OF VISION & STRATEGY AT CCC) & AMY WEIHRAUCH
There are so many questions when it comes to discipline. How do you know what’s right for you? Before you can answer that question, you must take it back a step. You need to discover the ‘why’ before the ‘how.’ Join Pastor Zach and his wife Amy as they lead a discussion on the heart behind discipline and how establishing healthy rhythms in your house can be a tool you use to point your kids to Jesus.
SESSION – FROM AUTHORITY TO INFLUENCE
DR. JIM COLLEDGE (FOUNDING PASTOR OF CCC)
How do you make the transition from being a presence of authority in your children’s lives to one of just influence? Join Pastor Jim Colledge as he talks about intentionally building a strong relationship with your kids so that your voice doesn’t get drowned out among the rest of the world’s noise as they leave your house. This session is great for parents and grandparents.
SESSION – MENTAL HEALTH
KAREN COFFEY (M.ED., LPCC-S) & REBECCA ALVAREZ (LCSW)
Mental health is essential to a child’s overall well-being. But what does mental health look like for children? Join Karen Coffey and Rebecca Alvarez as they walk through how to gauge the mental health of our kids. They will help break down terms like anxiety and depression as well as provide practical application for assessing the mental and emotional health of our children through a biblical lens.
