Flourishing in Ministry: Parenting as a Church Leader - October 2019

Being a church leader affects every part of our lives, including family life.  We all want to see children and teenagers flourish spiritually and emotionally alongside our congregations and communities.  But parenting as a church leader requires unique skills and choices, and the journey can often feel quite lonely.

This day explores the parenting techniques that will help church leaders’ children of all ages to flourish spiritually and emotionally in their connection with God and with the church.  Share your experience with others, talk honestly about your journey, and hear from those who have walked this path before.

Date: Wednesday 16th October 2019

Time: 10am to 4pm
Cost: £10 
Venue: Christ the Servant King Church, Sycamore Road, High Wycombe, HP12 4TJ
Further Information & Booking: Please see Oxford Diocese website link here.


Presenter: Rachel Turner is the Parenting for Faith pioneer at BRF and has worked in churches for over 12 years as a Family Life Pastor, Children’s Pastor and Youth Pastor.  Rachel is the author of four books, and a Parenting for Faith course.
