Christian Grandparenting Network is pleased to recommend the following conferences and retreats.

The Nuts and Bolts of Godly Grandparenting

Speaker: Sherry Schumann

As grandparents, many of us have bought the cultural lie that we are inconsequential in the lives of our children and grandchildren. This lie tells us to retire to “leisureville.” It tells us that, if we want a relationship with our grandchildren, we need to provide expensive presents and fancy trips. Nothing, however, is further from the Truth.

Join Sherry Schumann as she digs into Scripture and uncovers what the Bible says about our role as grandparents. Discover what it means to leave a Gospel shaped Legacy. Learn practical ways to share your faith stories with your grandchildren, offer them the gift of the spoken blessing, and commit yourselves as prayer warriors interceding regularly on their behalf.

Unleashing the Power of Prayer

Speakers: Sherry Schumann

Scripture tells us, “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective” (James 5:16). Why, then, do so many believers feel as though their prayers are powerless and ineffective?

Join Sherry Schumann for a one-or-two-day retreat as she digs into God’s Word and examines ways to step up our prayer life, thereby unleashing the power or prayer. This retreat features sis 45-minute sessions, which include the following topics: Intimacy with the Savior, Intimacy with the Holy Spirit, Hindrances to Our Approach to Prayer, Hindrances to the Work of Prayer, Intercessory Prayer and Prayers of Thanksgiving and Adoration.

This retreat can be customized to fit your time frame.

From Generation to Generation

Speakers: Don Haddix and Deborah Haddix

Psalm 145 is a clear demonstration of God’s love for the generations and his preference for working within a generational framework. The generation that is going off is to pour into the generation that is coming up. We are to be disciplers of our adult children and our grandchildren. But how?

Join Don and Deborah Haddix for this six-session conference as they help participants explore five effective and powerful methods for discipling the next generations. This event includes six 45-minute sessions: From Generation to Generation, Effectual Fervent Prayer, Modeling, Observing Traditions, Sharing Our God-stories, and The Power of Blessing.

Steeped in Scripture, seasoned with more than forty years’ worth of personal anecdotes, and sprinkled with fun and laughter, this conference helps encourage, equip, and challenge participants to live in obedience to God’s generational mandate.

This retreat can be modeled to fit your time frame.
