Raising Spiritual Champions

According to fresh research by George Barna, our children’s core beliefs, morals, and lifestyles are largely set by age 13. As parents, we have the profound privilege of influencing this next generation of adults.  What are you doing to disciple your family?  Today, Dr. Barna shares an objective, data-based approach for discipling our children, building their faith, and instilling a Biblical worldview.
