Local Seminars

Are you ready to “Grandparent on Purpose?” For some of you, this seminar will affirm the good things you are already doing with your grandkids. For others, it will shake your world and give you a brand new perspective on what it means to be an intentional Christian grandparent. Whether you are on one end of that spectrum or the other – or in the middle somewhere – you are going to be deeply impacted by the few hours of time you choose to invest.

Our desire is that you go away with new inspiration, encouragement, and tools to help you realize your potential to grandparent successfully. You will unlearn some things, and relearn others. Your passion for your grandkids will be kindled even higher, and you’ll go away changed. More importantly, those precious grandchildren of yours will benefit, and they will never be the same because you have listened, learned, and grown in Biblical wisdom.

Attend one of our seminars near you. If your church would like to host one of these seminars, contact Brenda Peitzman, Director of Grandparenting Seminars.  She will be delighted to give you more details!
