Training & Equipping Christ-Followers

This Wednesday evening program is geared to provide Christ-followers with top-notch biblical and theological education, practical ministry training, and Christ-centered leadership development.

 

TREC: Biblical Parenting +

This TREC series is a special to West Highland adaptation of Phil Lees' training: Family Foundations for Optimal Sexual Development.

This biblically aligned, research-based course equips and encourages parenting adults (parents, grandparents, church leaders, educators, etc.) to guide and support their children toward optimal sexual health (avoiding sex until marriage), protecting their current and future wellbeing in today's culture.

Phil Lees is founder and CEO of PEACE Ed Services, a Canadian charity dedicated to empowering youth with the knowledge and skills to protect their futures by avoiding at-risk activities such as non-marital sex.

After 29 years in education (teacher, curriculum consultant, university instructor) his full-time focus shifted to countering the negative effects of hyper-sexualized culture. The organization equips parenting adults and church leadership to develop positive sexual health character within their children and youth. 

Starting Wednesday, April 24 at 7:00 PM in room 222.
