Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.”
– Proverbs 22:6
Through support and encouragement, we equip parents of kids of all ages and stages to be God’s Plan A for their child’s spiritual development. We walk parents through real-life topics with a Biblical perspective and provide pastoral care and practical tools for the parenting journey.
