Intentional Parenting Conference

Intentional Parenting Conference

  • Venture Campus - Worship Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Raising kids in today's culture is a difficult challenge, and it requires a plan. Without a plan, parents usually default to Quick-Fix Parenting. Let's face it: it's just easier to focus on immediate problems rather than deal with the deeper and more important ones. Surviving each day is much easier than taking the time and energy to consider how parenting actions impact a child's future.

We get it. To be an exceptional parent, you need to be an intentional parent.

Join us at Venture as Doug Fields shares from experience how to be an intentional parent. Doug is an author (60+ books), consultant, co-founder of DownloadYouthMinistry.com, and he is the Director of HomeWord's Center for Youth and Family at Azusa Pacific University.

This event is FREE with registration, and free care for children (1st - 8th grade) is available with a reservation (care for birth-kindergarten is currently full).
