Faith vs Fear: Preparing a Foundation for College Readiness

How do we prepare our kids for a life after they leave us? This workshop will take a look at the integration of faith, higher education, scholarship, growth and becoming an adult. It will tackle the challenging topic of sending our kids away to college (or into the adult world) and how to live in a place of faith, expectation, and growth. It will be interactive, reflective, challenging, requiring thought and of course, because Matt has spent his life working with youth, it will be fun.
