Live Workshops

Help The Families In Your Church Flourish

Families today need what the church can offer more than ever but reaching them effectively has its challenges:


Sunday School only scratches the surface.


Parents are trying to do too much.


Spiritual development is not a priority.

There is a way you can equip parents with the tools they long for

A Connected Families Workshop helps bridge the gap between common parenting struggles and the church’s desire to equip them.

Let's Bridge The Gap

Our workshops meet parents where they’re at and help them work through topics such as:

Entitlement • Discipline • Sibling Conflict

Parents will learn practical ways to model their faith during day-to-day interactions (especially when things get messy!).

Every year we reach over 10,000 parents with our live workshops. Our experience with the challenges of ministering to parents spans 25 years. We know it’s not easy. But each year we increase our church partnerships and together we impact more lives than we’d ever imagined.

"I’m very thankful that Connected Families teaches connecting in relationship rather than controlling behavior. This is inline with who God is."


"Jim and Lynne combined wit and humor with deep insight and a soundly rooted Biblical perspective to give us a new perspective on timeless principles for parents"
