The Importance of Biblical Literacy for the Next Generation
We have the tremendous responsibility and privilege as parents and teachers of giving our children a thorough knowledge of the Bible. This seminar will focus on the importance of Bible literacy, as well as age-related goals and expectations, and practical tips for achieving these in the classroom and home.
Helping Children Develop a Biblical Worldview
We are living in an increasingly postmodern culture that is hostile to absolute truth, especially the truth and authority of God’s Word. This seminar will focus on the necessity of giving our students and children a biblical worldview, so that they would see and interpret everything in life through the truth of Scripture.
Choosing God-Centered Resources
How do we, as teachers and parents, evaluate these resources in a way that is discerning concerning the centrality of God? This seminar will focus on practical, clear guidelines for evaluating Christian books, music, and visual media developed for children.
Presenting the Gospel to Children
What is the gospel message and how is it presented to our children in Sunday School? This seminar will discuss ways to present the gospel accurately, earnestly, clearly, and in an age-appropriate manner.
Developing Bible Skills in Children
The Bible is the foundation for all truth. As parents and teachers, it is our responsibility to diligently teach our children the scriptures. In this workshop we will set goals and give practical ideas for building Bible skills in children, nursery through the elementary years.
Encouraging God-Esteem in a Culture of Self-Esteem
Our culture is saturated with the unbiblical self-esteem myth, namely: My happiness and success is dependent on making much of myself. In this workshop we will explore how we can teach, love, and encourage children in such a way that they will find true happiness, not by making much of self, but by making much of Christ.
