HR | GROW Conference 2020

Friday and Saturday, January 31st and February 1st, 2020

GROW is a parenting conference that is focused on the science of relationships, child development, and strengthening the parent-child relationship. Parents/caregivers will be given practical tools to care for their children in the midst of big emotions, difficult and confusing behaviors, and a growing brain. Attendees will be led through a series of discussion topics in order to construct an understanding of the role of a parent/caregiver in the flourishing of their family, as well as the role of the family in the flourishing of God's kingdom in our communities. You can learn more about the Conference by watching this video.

GROW will be hosted at The Journey Hanley Road and facilitated by licensed, professional counselors from the Karis House, a gospel-centered counseling ministry of The Journey.
