Speaker Workshops

Strong Fatherhood (Keynote)

Shortly after the birth of his first son, Paul lost the use of both of his arms and hands. For months he was forced to stop working and finally listened to the message that God was trying to share with him… 

…that work had become an obsession and his family an afterthought. What Paul learned has transformed his perspective on parenting and what being a strong father means.

The Higher Calling of Fatherhood

What does it mean to be a godly father who leads his family faithfully? Hear these true stories about homeschool dads who have grappled with this question:

  • An NFL Super Bowl Champion who came to Christ after realizing the world’s definition of success was hollow.
  • An Orthodox Jew who found Christ after reading the Book of Matthew, even at the price of being shunned by everyone he knew.
  • An Army Lieutenant Colonel who was at the Pentagon on 9/11 when a Boeing 757 crashed yards away from him, engulfing his body in flames, sending him on an unforgettable journey of faith and hope.
What is a Leader? (Teens)
