Dr. Kim Marxhausen will be keynote speaker. She states, “Children’s parents are their first and best teachers, especially when it comes to sharing the faith. God designed our brains and hearts to learn best within a family setting, and the church can do much to support parents. In our plenary sessions, we will explore how faith teaching is essential to a child’s spiritual and emotional well-being. We will learn how God cultivates resilience through the teaching of His Word. The goal of these sessions is to give you much to think and pray about as you build family and child ministry in your church.”
