Dear Pastor, Elder and Church Leader,
 

The NECF Family Commission together with the Family Ministries Malaysia and the Trinity Annual Conference of the Methodist Church in Malaysia will be conducting a three day meeting with Brian Houseman on Tech Savvy Parenting from the July 31 to August 2 at Full Gospel Assembly Kuala Lumpur.
 
Brian Houseman is from the States and has been serving families in ministry for twenty years. He has served in a variety of ministry positions such as youth pastor, school administrator, teaching pastor, and camp director. Brian has had the privilege of speaking at more than 100 conferences and countless churches, schools, camps, and military bases. He has lead student and parent programs from coast to coast in the USA as well as several international locations.
 
He is the author of Tech Savvy Parenting, a book to empower parents to deal with the rapidly changing world of their children. Instead of waging a war against technology, parents can learn to bring balance to their families by setting boundaries and safeguards.


Below are the scheduled sessions for your consideration:

July 31, 2017 – Public Seminar on Tech Savvy Parenting (8-10pm)

Every parent struggles to find a balance with cell phones, Facebook, and video games in the lives of their kids. Most parents feel overwhelmed and ill- equipped to set boundaries for their kids because they don’t know what to do with the technology themselves. Tech Savvy Parenting gives parents the practical tools they need to help their children and teens use technology wisely and responsibly.


August 1, 2017 – Pastors/Leaders Consultation (9am-4pm)

How can the church partner with parents in fulfilling the call of Deuteronomy 6 as far as it concerns the Digital Generation? Brian will share with us from his experience on journeying with his own kids and how he journeys with parents in shaping the lives of their children. He will also put in perspective for us the larger picture of families in the church and what we can do. Together with local leaders like Ps. Matthew Ling of Calvary Family Church, Kuching, and Dr. Herbert Tan of Emmanuel Methodist Church, PJ, pastors and leaders will chart out some critical paths the church in Malaysia needs to take that involves growing healthy families in the face of challenges of the digital generation.


August 2, 2017 – Train the Trainers (9am-4pm)

Brian will work with ministry stakeholders to equip them for the work of journeying with churches and parents in handling the challenges of the digital generation. Participants will be familiarizing themselves with the issues at stake and developing strategies for handling these challenges. Brian will be sharing on some of the approaches and systems he uses as well as share some of his work with churches and schools in Asia to assist us to frame an approach suitable for our context. We will learn how to take some of the resources that are already available and use it in our context.


Fees for each each session are as follows:
Public Seminar: RM10 per pax (includes light refreshments)
Pastors/Leaders Consultation: RM40 per pax (includes lunch, tea breaks, and resources)
Train the Trainers: RM60 per pax (includes lunch, tea breaks, and resources)
