What is Parent Summit?

During registration you will be able to select the breakout sessions you would like to attend.
How do I choose the right breakout session?
- Stay ahead of your kids. Wherever your kids are on the Milestone Path, stay a step or two ahead by attending the Milestone breakout before they get there!
- Split up. Ideally, both mom and dad attend Parent Summit and can split up to attend more breakout sessions. Remember to take good notes and set a time to debrief the next week.
- Repeat. Don’t be afraid to repeat a breakout session from year to year.

Milestone 4: Purity for Life
During Junior High, it becomes glaringly obvious that we must address “SEX” from a biblical perspective. The Children & Student Ministry partners with parents by teaching students the importance of accountability, healthy friendships, and biblical standards for purity. At the same timewe think it is much more important for students to learn these principles from their parents. We coach parents to focus on these issues in faith talks and intentional conversations before, and throughout the middle school years. During the parent seminar we provide resources to help in those conversations and faith talks.
Milestone 6: High School Graduation
Learn to equip your son or daughter for the challenges of life ahead in Christ while staying connected as a primary influence in his or her life.
