The New Generation of Homeschoolers
Our homeschool groups are changing around us and we have got to figure out how to minister to the new generation. Find out how to understand the differences in the next generation – both those coming out of the world and homeschool grads, and reach out to them in a way they can hear with what they need!
10:45 p.m. - 11:45 p.m. Session 3
What About Social Media Groups?
Many leaders say, “I don’t do Facebook. It’s a waste of time.” When you look at the statistics, the folks you’re trying to reach are deeply engaged in social media. Shouldn’t we be where they are? Find out how to use social media for ministry and marketing without losing your life to it and how to communicate better with members as well as interested families. Our fan page is among the top 6% on Facebook!

What About My Family? Finding Balance Between Homeschooling and Leading Homeschoolers
You don’t want to lose your own children while teaching other people how to raise theirs, but how in the world can you get it all done? Find balance in all the ministries God has given you and don’t wear yourself out, either.
2:15 p.m. - 2:45 p.m. Coffee Break in Cypress Ballroom
2:45 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. Session 5 & Closing
Developing the Next Generation of Leadership
Don’t wait until you are so burnt out that you quit cold turkey and your support group dies, as leaders we know have done. Learn what to look for in potential leaders, how to recruit them and how to disciple them to take over and keep the ministry going for your children’s generation.
