Parent Summit

April 13 // 9:00 am - 12:30 pm


Parenting can be rewarding, but it’s hard. The Parent Summit is an annual event that we host every year to let parents and grandparents know they’re not alone in the challenges they’re facing and there is redemptive hope in Jesus.

This year, our featured speaker will be the author and president of Authentic Intimacy, Dr. Juli Slattery. Everyone will also have a selection of breakout classes to attend.

Childcare is available for the first 150 kids. Register at the link below.

Join us for the Parent Summit as we navigate the obstacles of parenting together. Contact [email protected] to learn more information.



Breakout Sessions 

Raising Kids That Will Follow Jesus As Adults
Dr. Joe and Karen Coffey
Every child is unique and will have a unique path to faith as an adult. How do you help each of your children navigate their way to the heart of Jesus?

How to Use Intentionality and Structure to Create a Gospel Rhythm in Your Home
Dr. Zach and Amy Weihrauch
Rhythms and structure are the keys to moving from “we want to do this” to “we are doing this” in our families. Learn how to leverage intentionality and habit within the regular patterns of your family to see great things happen spiritually in 2024.

The Devil Lives in the “DM’s”
James Talbert
This session will dive into the why, how, and what as it pertains to Gen Z usage of social media and how we, as adults, can shepherd the next generation in the difficulty that this topic presents.

Redeeming Your Influence As a Grandparent
Dr. Jim College

As grandparents, we all long to have a positive influence on our grandchildren. Sometimes, our influence can be damaged/shattered/lost. In this breakout, we will consider some of the major causes of lost influence and steps to take to redeem your influence. We will look at how to recognize shortcomings and missteps. And then how to positively impact the lives of our grandchildren through improved behavior, guidance, and meaningful connections. It’s all about personal growth, fostering understanding, and building stronger bonds with grandchildren.

Your Children and Your Marriage: Making the Investment
Micah and Jess Irwin
Parenting can be difficult, and finding time together can be even more difficult. Let’s discuss why investing in a healthy marriage is worth it for you and your children. You will leave this session with a renewed vision and practical steps for investing in your marriage.

Trauma Parenting and Parenting Trauma
Jessica Gallina 
The session will share basic information about trauma, including suffering, embodiment, the brain/body connection, and biblical concepts. We will move on to discuss trauma treatment and then focus on parenting as a trauma survivor and parenting children who are trauma survivors. At the end of the session, there will be time for Q&A.
