One of our core values is Partnering with Parents. We believe that you, as the parent or guardian, is the primary spiritual leader in the life of your child. Therefore, we aim to equip you with tools and resources to supplement the discipleship that is taking place in your home. With that in mind, we are so excited for our first online Parent Lab!
On May 31st, from 2:00 – 3:00pm we are hosting our first Parent Lab, titled, Parenting in a Digital Age. We will have a guest speaker, Sid Koop, who will deliver helpful content for parents regarding the use of devices, social media, and navigating online realities, all under the umbrella of discipling your children. There will be a presentation from Sid, and some time for a live Q&A, where you can ask questions that you would find helpful for him to touch on.
Sid Koop has been involved in full-time youth ministry for over 19 years. In 2001, Sid founded Truth Matters Ministries.
