Parenting is two things. It is heart-work and hard work. Do you ever struggle to understand your students "world" that they live in? Raising kids who live out their faith in our culture is hard. Our goal is to help equip and partner with you in the adventures of parenting. As we pour into your student, below is our Core 5 list. These core competencies is something we pray every student lives out and understands before they graduate high school.
WE WANT OUR STUDENTS TO:
Have authentic faith.
*God can be trusted; He will do all He has promised to do.
*Your relationships determine the direction and quality of your life.
*All truth comes from God.
*When you make yourself nothing, you're really something.
Here are a few links that hopefully will help you when it comes to your student and their world and culture. I encourage you to try to understand their world as it is most often different than the world that you live in as well.
