We are looking forward to partnering with you and your church to offer this dynamic seminar to your community. This is a strategic seminar that helps parents apply biblical theology to their daily lives. It’s practical, hopeful, and encourages parents in a powerful way.
Please keep these things in mind as we move forward together:
1) This event has the potential to add energy to your parent discipleship program. So, think bigger than a seminar. Think about creating momentum, building a team, raising interest, and getting people on board your other parent training programs.
2) It’s difficult to get parents to come to an event. You will have to work very hard in promotion to make it happen. Don’t rely on the idea that most churches believe that “Everyone in our church signs up at the last minute.” You want to make the process as easy as possible removing as many roadblocks as you can. That’s why many churches offer childcare, food, easy registration, and even scholarships for those who can’t afford it.
3) You’ll want to have three promotion teams. 1) To reach those within your church. 2) To reach non believers in your community, and 3) To reach other like-minded churches, Christian schools, preschools and others in the Christian community.
To help you move forward here are several items you will find helpful. Use what you’d like off this page to create promotional pieces and to prepare your church for this seminar.

THRIVE! is a powerful parenting seminar that gives you new tools to help your children change. Kids need more than reward and punishment to bring about behavior change. They need a heart-based approach. By the end of this event you will have a new toolbox of strategies to help any age child grow from where he is to where he needs to be.
