Will your children hold fast to the Christian faith or be overwhelmed by non-Christian influences flooding from seemingly everywhere? The percentage of Christian young people who abandon the faith once they graduate from high school is increasingly dramatically. What can you do to help? At this conference, Richard Ross will help families learn
· the necessity of strong heart connections (relationships) between parents and their children
· how these heart connections become damaged even in Christian homes
· how to restore damaged connections and center parent-child relationships on Jesus Christ and God’s Word
We invite families to come and learn how to prepare the next generation to walk in faith for a lifetime and daily join King Jesus in fulfilling the Great Commandment and the Great Commission for the glory of God.

His entire life has focused on seeing Christ glorified in the lives of teenagers and their parents and leaders. He served as a local-church youth minister for 30 years. Overlapping part of that time was 16 years of service as the youth ministry consultant at LifeWay Christian Resources.

God whispered the idea for the True Love Waits movement to Jimmy Hester and Richard Ross. The first promises of purity were made by members of Ross’ youth group in 1993. Today the movement has been embraced by 100 denominations and national student organizations in the U.S. and by over 100 countries. Interest in the movement has led Ross to appear on such programs as The Today Show, Nightline, and CNN Headline News—and to be interviewed by The Washington Post, The Washington Times, the New York Times, USA Today, Newsweek, Time, Life, Seventeen, and several hundred other newspapers and magazines.
