Raising Kids Who Love Christ – Making the worlds of Home, Church and School Connect

Raising the next generation is a team effort. Yes, school and yes, church, but what can we do at home to create an environment that helps develop a bold and confident faith in Christ?  Parents choose their church, and classical Christian schools work “in loco parentis” or under the authority of the parent. So how well are we parents leading the way in discipling our children at home? Chap Bettis has spent years giving practical advice to parents and shares some tips that will encourage you in how you disciple your children.

homeChap Bettis is the author of The Disciple-Making Parent: A Comprehensive Guidebook for Raising Your Children to Love and Follow Jesus Christ and the executive director of The Apollos Project, a ministry devoted to helping parents disciple their children. For the previous 25 years, he was lead pastor in a New England church plant. He and his wife, Sharon, have four adult children and live in Rhode Island.


As a pastor in New England for the past 25 years, Chap understands both the Word of God and the everyday issues of family life. When he is not ministering the Word, Chap likes cycling, skiing, reading, and checking out Providence restaurants with his wife.
