Parenting Seminar
Order Now Watch Now

Dear Parent,

I am excited to offer this DVD series on Christian parenting.  I believe this tool will help meet some needs in hundreds of our G.C.A.C. families. 

This series is not a studio production.  It is a live recording of a parenting seminar we gave in May of 2004, at Summitview Community Church

Over 200 parents came together for that Saturday and it was a great time.

This seminar was about my 60th time presenting this teaching, and my prayer is that these DVD’s will help strengthen hearts and strengthen willpower, in hundreds of fathers and mothers.

I am also happy to offer this tool for several other reasons:

  1. We recognize that many people just don’t read that much, but they might take time to work through a DVD.
  2. Also, much of the spirit of these twelve chapters is aimed at the hearts of fathers. A lot of this instruction is for you men.
  3. These messages lift up and magnify the local church.  Although we did home school, the instruction here is for people that believe in the New Testament Church, in God’s “community of the faithful.”  Oftentimes parenting tools seem to ignore the critical importance of the church. These chapters do not. 
  4. Throughout this series we trumpet how vitally important it is to be involved in the Great Commission.  I do not believe that we can successfully train and release our youth apart from understanding this last mission that our Lord left us with. 
    Many parenting tools ignore this mission.  We do not.
  5. Also, a lot of these chapters are aimed at parenting teenagers.  And parenting, training and releasing teens is the juncture we are at, in this movement.  While there is much for parents of toddlers and young children, I spend a good amount of time speaking to the heart of a parent of a 14-year-old. 

And maybe my last reason for believing in these messages is that I am still teamed with the same people that God used to see us saved many years ago.  This material is what you all taught me.  It is an honor to be linked with the people of God. 

I want to thank the Fort Collins church for hosting this particular seminar, and for video recording everything. 

I want to thank Brad Barrett, for writing the Discussion Guides that accompany each of the twelve chapters.  I was hoping for a pointed, fresh perspective, and you delivered.  Thank you, partner.  Also thank you Joe Bogner for all the duplication, labeling and production help.  Much appreciated.

I want to especially thank Josh Meyer for editing these DVD’s.  Your work made the chapters sound logical - a miracle.  

Our cost for producing this tool is about $20 per package.  If you are interested you may email me and we will ship you a set. rickatgcnw@aol.com

Keep pressing,
Rick Whitney
