Courageous Grandparenting

What Legacy are you leaving your children and grandchildren?

The Courageous Grandparenting Seminar or Conference is a partnership of local churches and Christian Grandparenting Network (CGN) promoting intentional, godly parenting and grandparenting so that future generations may grow up with a solid, biblical foundation that will enable them to follow Christ wholeheartedly in today’s world.

CGN is delighted to be able to partner with local churches in various communities to offer the Courageous Grandparenting Seminar. Each seminar or conference features a presentation by CGN approved and effective presenters who understand the needs and issues related to today’s parents and grandparents.

Are You Prepared to Assume the Biblical Roles God Intended for You as a Grandparent?

Battles rage daily for the souls of our children and youth.

Victory demands courage.

Courageous Grandparenting is the Christian Grandparenting Network’s (CGN) teaching and equipping ministry to enable grandparents to fulfill the biblical role God has call us to for the sake of the next generations–our grandchildren.

The mission of CGN is to champion a movement of intentional Christian grandparents by engaging, equipping and empowering them to wholeheartedly embrace their biblical roles so that their grandchildren will know, love and serve Christ. We use Courageous Grandparenting conferences, seminars, blogging, small group studies, and the leadership training retreat to flesh out that mission.

We are also committed to come alongside church leaders and partner with them in the development of effective grandparenting ministry that focuses on intentional inter-generational discipleship. Our church ministry coaches are ready to serve the local church to help engage this huge demographic for the cause of Christ’s Kingdom through the embodiment of the Gospel in all of life.

Nehemiah’s charge is the battle cry for this generation: “Remember the Lord who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes”. (Neh. 4:14)

Courageous Grandparenting is a call to stay in the race, fight the good fight, and finish the race well so our children and grandchildren may know and walk in the truth. There is no greater joy than that.

What is the difference between a Courageous Grandparenting Seminar and Conference?

In very simple terms:

  • A seminar is a one-day event with six one-hour interactive teaching sessions.
  • A conference is typically a two-day event utilizing selected seminar sessions plus individual workshops.

What is the content of the Courageous Grandparenting Seminar?

The six sessions of either the Seminar or the Conference are built around Scriptural teaching related to grandparenting embodied in Three Biblical Roles…

  • Gatekeeper
  • Story Teller
  • Blessing Giver

Each session is creatively presented to help grandparents flesh out what it means to be courageouly intentional in how we live for Christ and how we teach our grandchildren to live for Christ in today’s world. Here are the titles of the five sessions we use:

  1. Wake Up! Who’s Problem Is It?
  2. Wise Up! The Issachar Factor
  3. Own Up! An Ordained Partnership (Adult Children)
  4. Speak Up! Unleashing the Power of Spoken Blessing
  5. Live Up! A Legacy Worth Outliving You
  6. Size Up! Untangling the Technology Web

We also offer an optional Friday night session for DADS AND GRANDDADS ONLY. This session is called: MAN UP! IN SEARCH OF TRUE HEROES.

We can also design a seminar format that is built around your time limitations. All of the sessions listed above are stand-alone sessions that can be done as a single workshop, or we can work with you to construct a two, three or four hour seminar that satisfies your situation.
