What happens on the day
Hear the results of research, share your experience with others, talk honestly about your journey and hear from those who've walked this path before.
Through thinking about the four foundations church leaders' children need, we'll be exploring the parent vs church leader tension of living in the goldfish bowl, and discovering how best to position our children to flourish in their connection with God and with the church.
The days vary slightly but all follow a similar format:
9.30 - 10.00 Arrival and refreshments
10.00 - 11.00 Session 1: Sustaining connection: finding ways to stay connected with your kids in the chaos of juggling leadership roles and parental responsibilities
11.00 - 11.15 Break
11.15 - 12.15 Session 2: Affirming their value: how to negotiate the church vs family tug of war well and ensure your kids know they are important to you even at the busiest of time
12.15 - 12.45 Lunch
12.45 - 13.45 Session 3: Finding ourselves: exploring how to be a family in the goldfish bowl of church
