How Does the Summit work?
The Parenting Relationships Summit is LIVE! 
Are you a ...
Parent of a child 8 - 18? 
Grandparent
Teacher
Youth Pastor
Family Pastor
Caring Adult
Watch and learn from 5 experts every day!
Everyday spend 30 minutes with each expert to gain practical insight on how to invest and connect with your teen. 

There will be 5 new expert interviews released everyday to watch for FREE starting, TODAY February 14th!
What do you get?
Practical Takeaways. 
We've spent months interviewing the best speakers within as many curated topics as possible with the goal of each interview to provide practical and specific advice and resources to implement in your everyday life as a parent. 

Variety of Topics.
The Parenting Relationships Summit covers topics from leadership in parenting, singleness, sexuality, biblical manhood, grace-based discipline, step parenting, the pro-life movement, the cultural climate, digital citizenship and so much more

Climate of Teen Culture. 
As a parent, being informed about what's happening in your teen's world and why it matters is key. With the knowledge of your teen's culture and the connection to their heart, you can cultivate their love for God. 

These expert speakers provide insight into what is "normal" in teen culture based on their many different experiences and wisdom. 
Best Christian Parenting Resources. 
We provide resources for each expert interview so you can continue to dive deep into any topic. 

One of those resources that is available throughout the summit is a unique, close-knit community between parents that forms that you won't find in any other online conference. We encourage interaction between audience members through an online discussion platform where you can give ideas about the content and speakers, as well as encourage other participants. 

You truly could read hundreds of books about parenting . . . or watch a 30-minute interview from the actual author for free! 

Why waste time experimenting as a parent when you can learn directly from the influential leaders who’ve done what you want to do?
