Get Real Parent Conference
A special two-hour evening event to encourage, train and challenge parents to help their children develop a Biblical Worldview and allow them to grow in their understanding of who God is and how He is at work creating their story. This parenting seminar will also give practical stats on current internet trends and equip you with practical tools to help your kids navigate the internet in a social media-driven world. So whether your children are attending home school, a Christian school, or a non-Christian school, this event will help you understand a Biblical Worldview.
In America today, societal narratives splinter and divide us. There's a lens for every cause du jour. Yet, God has called us to be ONE people, ONE body, and HE is the Head. What would that look like?

THE PARENT TEAM
BILLY LORD / SCOTT DAVIS
BILLY LORD will lead in several moments of worship throughout the evening. The songs are designed to engage parents in singing and worship. Several of the songs are the same ones Billy will lead the students the following day if the school is also hosting the One Real Day Spiritual Emphasis Conference. He will discuss the climate in which our children live and how a parent can help guide them through the “mine fields” of media and social media.
SCOTT DAVIS will present an overview of WHAT a worldview is and how important it is to have a Biblical one. To be effective biblical Christians, we must read the Bible in order to read the culture. We read the Bible first so we will know how to read the world news next. He will discuss the decline of our cultural norms and how this has affected our children and educational system. He will discuss the Biblical foundation that must start at home and then be encouraged through Christian education. He will also present the Gospel for parents to respond if they've never trusted Christ as Savior.
