Why is it called “renovated” parenting?  
Renovations are needed in many areas of our lives. We believe that many parents understand the importance of discipling their children, but they don’t quite understand what this means or how to do it. As a result, their current approach may not match the biblical foundation they believe in. This conference will affirm the biblical call that parents have, explain why this matters, and provide guidance for how to do it.

Who is invited to the Renovated Parenting Conference?  
Parents are the intended audience, but pastors and anyone else who ministers to and equip parents are also invited to attend. The purpose of the conference is to provide parents with practical tools to disciple their children.

Who’s directing the Renovated Parenting Conference?
The conference is organized and sponsored by MB Seminary and Northwest Baptist Seminary, two seminaries that regularly partner together (each is part of the ACTS Seminaries consortium in Langley, BC). Registrations will be managed through MinistryLift, which provides leadership training through MB Seminary.

When is the conference?
Saturday, February 17, 2018 from 9 – noon (Pacific Standard Time).

Where is the conference being held?
The conference will be simulcasted to multiple host churches throughout British Columbia, providing the same plenary teaching experience to each location. When parents register for the conference, they will choose where they wish to attend. Churches in other provinces can also choose to host the event as long as they clearly communicate the time difference (i.e. a host church in Alberta will need to adjust its time to 10-1 MST).

As of January 22,  there are seven host churches confirmed.

How long are the plenary sessions?

Will the presenters respond to audience questions?
The plenary speakers will reply to audience questions during the final session of the conference. Questions can be submitted via Twitter or email during the day and these will relayed by the conference host.

Is childcare provided? Can children attend?
Each host church will determine whether they will offer childcare service. Nursing infants under 9 months of age can attend with their mother.
