Here are a couple of sample seminars. We may also be willing to cover special topics by request.
Sample Seminar 1
My Child, My Chance: Comprehensive Sex Education – How it Affects Children
Changes to sexual health education are threatening our children’s very identity. Children are being led to consider their gender as fluid and their sexuality as beyond their control. The situation in Ontario, Canada is a case-in-point. The new Health and Physical Education curriculum has been built on the foundation of Comprehensive Sexual Education, a program developed by International Planned Parenthood Federation and promoted by the World Health Organization. The curriculum, buttressed by the media and other cultural messages, has shocked many parents with its misinformation and a troubling theme of self-exploration.
In this seminar, we will examine the themes and strategies of the curriculum and where it will take our children if we do not intervene. We will learn how we, as parents and children’s workers, can take charge of the situation by being alert, informed, and proactive. We will take as our theme verses 1 Thessalonians 5:21-22, “Test everything; hold fast to what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.”
Sample Seminar 2
My Child, My Chance: Guarding and Guiding a Child’s Identity in Christ
As parents and children’s workers, we can’t allow more time to pass before we make a commitment to intentionally, purposefully disciple the children in our care. We need to break down harmful messages around sexuality and engage in the battle of identities: our children’s true identity as given by God as compared to the false identity based on gender or sexuality as offered by the culture.
In this seminar, we will explore how we can purposefully teach children their identity in Christ. If our children recognize that the question “Who am I really?” is answered when they understand that they were created for the purpose of knowing God and bringing him glory, then we do not need to fear when they encounter harmful cultural messages. Our children will be secure and stand firm in the knowledge of who God created them to be.
We will explore key messages that our children need to grasp and own in order to thrive in this identity-confused culture. We will talk about how a growing relationship with Christ, along with a biblical understanding of who God made them to be, will enable them to withstand the cultural chaos and be a voice for truth in the world.
