YOUR GRANDCHILDREN TO FOLLOW CHRIST
Grandparents have incredible power: they are second only to parents in their ability to influence children. The greatest joy and the greatest passion of a grandparent is a grandchild, yet that passion is unleveraged by the church, and under-resourced by the vast majority of family ministries in America.
It is time to change. Time to harness the wisdom, the resources, the energy, the savvy, and the passion of millions of grandparents – to redouble their efforts to be intentional influencers of our youngest generation.

TESTIMONIES FROM SEMINAR ATTENDEES
Thank you for challenging me to be an “active” grandma. My “job” is not over because my own kids are raised. You taught me what an opportunity I have to walk alongside my daughter and son-in-law; what a blessing to our family.
My grandchildren are very young so I’ve got a great head start to leaving a legacy.
I had found myself self-indulgent and mostly uninspired as a grandparent before I came. Now I feel I have a purpose, and more of a vision for my life. Thank you!
