What does the Bible have to say about raising children in the faith? How can the Church support families as units of discipleship and mission? How do families fit into God’s plan of redemption? These questions and others will shape our conversations at the 2018 Anglican Family Conference which will take place January 17-19, 2018 at Trinity School for Ministry. Presenters will include: Trevecca Okholm, author of Kingdom Family: Re-Envisioning God’s Plan for Marriage and Family; Dan Dupee, author of It’s Not Too Late: the Essential Part You Play in Shaping Your Teen’s Faith; Jonathan Warren, co-associate Rector at Church of the Ascension in Pittsburgh with his wife Tish, author of Liturgy of the Ordinary; and Leslie Thyberg, a member of the ACNA's Committee on Catechesis and its working group, Anglican Family. We are dedicated to the renewal of families for the flourishing of church and society through the resourcing of clergy, lay leaders, and parents in the work of faith formation.
