Facts to Consider for Becoming a Presenter of
the Parenting is Heart Work Parenting Seminar
Thank you for your interest in becoming
a Presenter of the Parenting is Heart Work Seminar from
the National Center for Biblical Parenting. This document
is designed to answer basic questions and to give you
an overview of the program.
Our next presenter training will be September 19-21,2013 in Los Angeles, California. You may email us
to get on the list of people interested.
A Presenter must complete an application and be approved
and then attend the training by the National Center
for Biblical Parenting. Upon completion of the 3-day
training, the Presenter will be able to present the
4 1/2 hour "Basic Tools" Seminar in churches
around the country. Continued evaluation and training
will keep the Presenter up to date and connected to
further seminar presenting opportunities of the National
Center for Biblical Parenting.
Qualifications of a Presenter
In order to become a Presenter a person must demonstrate
substantial knowledge in the Scriptures and an understanding
of how people change. This usually means that the
Presenter will have post-graduate school education
and experience as a counselor, pastor, or teacher. Some of our presenters don't have a post-graduate degree or experience in formal ministry but they show promise as public speakers and have a keen undestanding of God's Word as it applies to the family.
Although there may be many good programs and ideas out
there about parenting, in order to be a Presenter
for the National Center for Biblical Parenting you
must adhere to a few core values. Beyond those values
you will have substantial freedom as a Presenter.
You must believe the following:
The Scriptures are the authority for developing strategies
for parenting. The Presenter must be committed to studying
the Bible, interpreting it with integrity, and applying
it to family life with wisdom.
The Presenter must have accepted Jesus Christ as personal
savior and be committed to following the Lord in daily
life. Since an appeal for others to have a close relationship
with their Heavenly Father is part of the seminar,
a Presenter must believe that salvation comes by God's
grace alone through faith in Jesus Christ.
Since this one issue can be easily misunderstood and taken
to extremes, a Presenter must avoid the mentality that
says that all parents must spank their kids. Furthermore,
the Presenter cannot hold a position that spanking is
evil. Rather, the Presenter must believe and be willing
to teach that spanking may be one tool in the toolbox
but it is not the only one. This balanced approach when
it comes to the use of spanking is true to God's Word
and will prevent a Presenter from engaging in extremes.

your seminar will quickly reveal your stand on any of
these issues. Your views on these crucial issues must
