For Parents

NPC Families

At National, we are committed to equipping parents to be the primary disciple-makers of their children. We partners with parents to nurture and encourage them so that they and their children may be brought to full maturity in Jesus Christ. We seek to empower parents in this task so as to be obedient to the Scriptures and to strengthen the kingdom of God.

Parenting Seminar

Saturday, January 27, Stone Hall
5–6 p.m.: talk, 6–7 p.m.: dinner (donations accepted)

Drawing on the imagery of an athletic event where the crowd can influence the outcome of the game, “Stacking the Stands” provides parents of high school, middle school, and elementary students an opportunity to learn the leveraging power of weaving a web of life-giving, intergenerational relationships for their children. 

Parents will walk away from this seminar knowing they are not alone, and they will leave equipped with one of the most powerful tools for parenting as they set out to “stack the stands.”
