Parent Conference 2021
The 2021 Parent Conference hopes to be an event where parents all over Southeast Texas can be discipled in how to better parent our children. Our main speaker, Dr Tony Wolfe, is the Senior Strategist for Church Health and Leadership for the Southern Baptist of Texas Convention. He married his wife Vanessa in 2001 and they have two sons. Along with Dr Wolfe we will also have Pastors from across Southeast Texas who will be doing smaller teaching sessions that we are calling our Breakout Sessions. Jared Hollier, Pastor of Pecan Acres Baptist church in Vidor, will be doing a session on Boundaries and how God uses them for His children and He wants us to use them with ours. Josh Fults, the new pastor at First Baptist Church Orange, will be doing a session on Mental Health in our kids and how we help them. Nicholas Coleman, the pastor of Fellowship Baptist Church in Bridge City, will be leading us through the how's and why's of Discipling our Children. Finally, Tim Ramsey, the Youth Pastor at Fellowship Baptist Church in Huntsville, will be speaking to us about Social Media and the effects it can have on our kids and how we can help combat that. Along with all of the incredible teaching we will have that weekend we will also be having Chick-Fil-A for lunch, and all of that is included in the $15 that we will be charging for the conference. So please make plans to attend this awesome Saturday of learning, growing, and fellowship with one another.
