The live stream of the 2017 Family Discipleship and Homeschooling Conference will present something for every member of your family:
- Fathers will be called to loving, servant leadership and faithful discipleship in the home by looking to their heavenly Father for the perfect example of fatherhood they never had.
- Mothers will be encouraged with a fresh perspective on the big-picture “why” behind the daily routine of motherhood, as well as practical tips for keeping the “homeschool routine” from turning into the “homeschooling rat-race.”
- Young adults and children will be prepared to engage the culture for Christ with a biblical view of history, science and defending the faith.
Through the lineup of dynamic speakers and practical sessions, you will be equipped to fulfill your great calling in life: making disciples of Jesus Christ – one child at a time.

9:00-10:30 (General Session) Dr. Tedd Tripp
Keynote: What is a Family?
The Christian family is a theological learning center where God’s glory is displayed. It is a sociological learning center where children learn living with and loving others. It is a redemptive learning center where parents stand together with children as people who sin, are sinned against, and must experience the grace of redemption working within.
11:15-12:15 (Workshop A) Emeal (E.Z.) Zwayne
A beautiful start can end with a tragic end. Why? Listen to E.Z. as he explains how even “small” sinful “habits are like stones, rolling down a hill; the further they roll, the faster and more ungovernable is their course.” (J.C. Ryle)
1:45-2:45 (Workshop B) Scott LaPierre
Avoiding Hypocrisy in Parenting
We desire the best for our children. We want them to embrace the gospel and follow the Lord in their lives. Our children face many threats. Could one of those threats be from their own parents? What can we do to avoid hypocrisy in our parenting and ensure our children see the gospel in us, through our lives, and through our parenting?
3:30-4:30 (Workshop C) Dr. John LeProhon
Are you raising your children to be consumers or ministers? Churches are filled with Christians who are completely content to be consumers while they let “the professionals” do the ministering. To be like Christ requires a servant’s heart. Raise your children to serve as ministers rather than live as consumers.
6:30-8:30 Family Night Emeal (E.Z.) Zwayne
Keynote – Shepherding Children to Live in an Apostate Culture
As our families are bombarded with the wickedness of this world, how do we shepherd our children so they will be blameless and harmless in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation? Join E.Z. as he answers this question from Scripture.
9:00-10:15 (General Session) Emeal (E.Z.) Zwayne
Keynote – Ultimate Goal of Education
Could education wars exist not because of differences in strategy, but because of differences in goals? Education is not to create prosperous people, but to equip citizens of heaven. Explore the call to Christian parents not to raise children who make their way in the world, but who make war on the world, live godly lives, and who seek first the kingdom of God.
10:45-11:45 (Workshop D) Dwight Cover
On Bibles, Boxtops, Yum-Yum, and You (and Your Youngins)
Christians face the constant battle to not be like the godless culture we are to reach. There is competition for our souls between consuming media or God’s Word. What life patterns must we develop to ensure we truly engage the culture for Christ’s sake instead of being so informed by the culture we make no difference at all?
1:00-2:00 (Workshop E) David Rasmussen
The Adventures of a Cinematographer
NEEDS CHANGE autism, Asperger’s, dyslexia, learning disabilities, and ADHD as a functional disconnection syndrome (FDS), a functional imbalance of brain activity within each side and/or between the right and left sides of the brain. Come gain understanding and deeper insight into issues and challenges your students are facing!
2:30-3:30 (Workshop F) Dr. Jobe Martin
Amazing Animals and Attributes of the Amazon
The Amazon jungle has layers that are completely dependent upon each other. The uniquely symbiotic and mutualistic relationships of the various plants, insects, animals, and birds brilliantly display an environment that had to be created within the six day creation week as Genesis records.
4:30-5:55 (General Session) Dr. Tedd Tripp
Keynote – Getting to the Heart of Family Life
Together, we will examine the biblical teaching that the heart is the well-spring of behavior, from Proverbs 4:23: “Above all else guard your heart, for it is the well-spring of life.”
Have you ever heard the sound of 200 homeschoolers raising their voices in praise to the Almighty God? Don’t miss this thrilling performance by the Christian Heritage at the beginning of the final general session!
