Attending this event?
When you walk along the road. When you sit in your house. When you lie down. When you get up. Deuteronomy 6 describes the everyday opportunities to disciple our families. Discipleship is not an event—it’s a way of life. It is built on disciplined, oft-repeated routines, woven into the fabric of everyday living increasing the children’s stickability of those daily disciplines into adulthood to share with the next generation. God’s plan emphasized everyday teachable moments as we share our faith with our families and others. Churches partner with parents and adult mentors to have intentional faith conversations with children and step into each opportunity to connect with the hearts of another generation. Together, churches and families, let’s focus on discipleship every day!

Leaders engage in the D6 Conference for many reasons, but one unifying reason is this: we believe that God's two agents of formation -- the church and home -- are God's design to shape the faith of our children. But what are we supposed to do when parents do not engage in the discipleship of their own kids? It can sometimes feel like we are stuck, gridlocked or even at a stalemate. Using the latest research from the book The Faith of Our Children, Matt Markins will walk us through fresh insights to inform how we move beyond the soundbite "parents are the primary disciplers of their kids" into a world where parents are confidently equipped to engage their own kids spiritually.
