As Christians, the ultimate goal for your child is to embody the characteristics of Christ―the Son of God sent to demonstrate His desire for us. But how can you realistically help your child imitate the life of Jesus Christ? Our guest, a renowned researcher and bestselling author, will reveal that who your child will be as an adult is essentially determined by the age of 13―their core beliefs, morals, values, desires, and lifestyle. Raising your child is an exciting opportunity to influence a life, but it is also a daunting assignment. Parents have the God-given responsibility―and privilege―to guide the development of their children, a responsibility that cannot be delegated to schools, churches, media, or community organizations. Based on extensive national research, he will outline a biblical approach to raising children with the "Seven Cornerstones of a Biblical Worldview."

Join us to hear our guest’s testimony of his conversion from atheism to faith. Discover how his skills as a detective can be used for us to better ‘contend for the faith’.
