Are you seeking to raise your kids to know the truth of the gospel of Jesus and to ache to share the hope of that gospel with the lost souls around them? Are you seeking to raise servant leaders who move towards need and not comfort? If so, please consider attending the upcoming Worldview Academy Christianity and Culture Conference – “Bold Christianity in an Anything Goes Culture” – April 5 & 6th in Rocklin @ Creekside Church.
SCOPE member, Beth Boyum, is coordinating this event from Worldview Academy. This is not a SCOPE sponsored event, but it is a ministry that aligns very well with SCOPE.
Kevin and Beth Boyum, have four kids, ages 22, 19, 17, and 14. They have been homeschooling with SCOPE from the beginning and have been involved with the ministry of Worldview Academy (WVA) for the past 9 years. They have sent their kids to WVA summer camps yearly and their girls have served as staff/interns. Kevin and Beth are deeply grateful for WVA’s ministry to teens and their impact for the glory of God – not just in the lives of their kids, but thousands upon thousands of teens nationwide. Their Christ-exalting faculty and staff have consistently modeled what it means to be a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ and how to live that out in everyday life. WVA teaches kids how to answer their own hard questions about faith, and equally importantly, how to extend the truth of the gospel of Christ in genuine love to others.
Disciplining, discipline, and preparing sons for leadership. One of the most important truths that we can instill in our children is the importance of authority. We must teach them to honor God as the ultimate authority, to obey their earthly authorities (parents, elders, civil authorities, etc.), and also prepare them to one day become authorities in others lives. Good leaders are not made by accident! In this workshop Hal and Melanie will discuss how we can instill these values in our children and pass them on to future generations.
Our culture tells teens that they are still children, but the Word of God and history show us otherwise. Why wait until you are 18 or 22 or even 25 and done with your education to start doing things that matter? Ready to be an adult? There is no reason teens can’t begin to impact their world just as young adults did throughout history. Come get real life examples and lots of ideas to help you resist the low expectations our society has of your generation and do real things for God and your world.
You’ve heard the verses and caught the vision, but what can you do to get your children on your team? How can you stop the bickering and rivalry and begin making memories? Can you make the dream of family unity into a reality? In this idea-packed workshop, Hal and Melanie share how to tear down obstacles and build up family unity in fun, memorable ways.
Sometimes homeschooling feels like one of those plate-spinning acts, and you wonder how in the world you’re going to meet everyone’s needs. The baby needs to be changed, the toddler is playing in the toilet, your highschooler is impatiently waiting for help with his biology experiment, and two other children say, “I can’t do anything without you, Mom!” Melanie Young, mother of eight, shares encouragement and ideas for how to keep all those plates spinning at once without your life spinning out of control. Learn how to raise independent learners, keep the household moving, and make sure the little ones get enough attention!
