There is no greater influence a child has than their parents. Our Family Life ministries come alongside parents to partner with them in influencing kids and students to find and follow Jesus. During this special NextGen weekend we’ll hear from our LPKids, LPStudents and HUGS (Special Needs) leaders as they share their vision and passion for their ministry areas. We’ll also hear some of the unique ways they are reaching their communities during this season – you won’t want to miss it!
