Why should parents of teenagers come to the Enlighten Conference?


I have been a youth minister for almost 10 years.  One of my greatest passions in life is helping teenagers realize their full potential so that they can go on to make a positive and eternal impact on our world.  Throughout my years serving in various churches throughout towns in Texas, I have noticed a frustrating trend.

There is not a ton of support for the parents of teenagers.  I have seen numerous conferences, seminars, and trainings on how to raise children, but I have not seen as much for parents of teenagers.  This is why Victory Life has decided to offer a conference for all parents of teenagers in Lubbock on September 20th at 6:00pm.

The questions remains.. Why should you and your family come?

We will be answering questions involving the following:

  • How do I better communicate with my teenager?
  • How should families manage time together in an ever increasing sports culture?
  • What are the 4 steps to avoid a teenage dating disaster?
  • What are the new developments in synthetic marijuana and other drugs?
  • How can you as a parent play a key role in developing your teenager to withstand the temptation that comes from underage drinking?

We are also inviting Paul Enloe, from Lubbock Cooper High School to speak in a general session to all families.  Paul is a gifted leader who has served the Lubbock Community for years.  We are so excited to bring him in to speak.

Another speaker will be Jodi Barnes.  Jodi is a gifted communicator who is currently raising teenagers.  Jodi is excited to share her heart with families in order to encourage, equip, and enlighten families in their role as a parent.

On top of all of the information you will gain, you will also be fed dinner for free!  We are serious about partnering with parents of teenagers and want you to come join us.  The conference on only last for 2 hours and 15 minutes.  Please visit enlightenlubbock.com to rsvp for this amazing event.
