About the conference:

Sessions:

Raising a Generation to Discern and Follow Truth
As parents, we can have no greater joy than to know that our children are walking in the truth. Yet equipping our children to do so requires increasing discernment and intentionality. Come explore practical, hands-on strategies for immersing our children in truth education from the earliest of ages.
 
Training Kids to Think Biblically in a Deceptive World
Our kids may know Bible stories and have a handful of verses memorized, but do they genuinely know how to think biblically? Do they have the tools they need to read, interpret, and apply Scripture in a world that wants them to do anything but this? In this session, we will explore several critical steps in training our kids to think biblically in any and every situation.
 
Preparing Kids to Stand Firm in Their Faith by Recognizing Competing Worldviews
The world is full of ideas that sound kind, compassionate, and appealing. Yet, in reality, these ideas are hollow and deceptive, built on a faulty foundation. If we want to keep our children from falling for these false ideas, we need to equip them to recognize the basic tenets of a worldview and understand how competing worldviews answer significant life questions.
 
Equipping Kids to Navigate False Ideas
Our kids are confronted with more information in one year of their life than most humans throughout history have encountered in their entire lifetime. If we want our children to know and follow truth, we must give them the careful thinking skills they need to navigate the scores of false ideas they face daily.
 
Helping Kids Confront Cultural Issues with Truth and Love
Living faithfully as a follower of Jesus in our current culture can be challenging. Many biblical teachings are viewed as “intolerant” or even “hateful.” If we want to prepare our kids to be faithful followers of Jesus, we must equip them to speak the truth in love in every situation they encounter.

Speaker

Elizabeth Urbanowicz
founder / Foundation Worldview

Elizabeth Urbanowicz (er-ban-o-wits) is a follower of Jesus Christ who is passionate about equipping kids to understand the truth of the Christian worldview.

She holds a B.S. from Gordon College in Elementary Education and Spanish, an M.S.Ed. from Northern Illinois University in Literacy Education, and an M.A. in Christian Apologetics from Biola University. Elizabeth began her professional career as an elementary teacher in a Christian school.

Several years into her teaching experience, Elizabeth realized that despite being raised in Christian homes, attending a Christian school, and being active in church, her students thought more like the culture than like Christ. Elizabeth began searching for curricular materials that would equip her students to think critically, helping them discover that Christianity is the worldview that lines up with reality. After not finding any materials that met this need, she began creating a curriculum for her students.

Elizabeth first taught Foundation Comparative Worldview Curriculum as an after-school class for third through fifth graders, and the results were incredible! Students were transformed from passive recipients of information to active evaluators of every message they receive. Parents and teachers alike noticed the impact these materials had on students’ media consumption, academic achievement, and everyday habits. This transformation lasted beyond the elementary years and guided students’ thinking in junior high and beyond.

Elizabeth now works full-time on developing comparative worldview and apologetics resources for children. Her goal is to prepare the next generation to be lifelong critical thinkers and, most importantly, lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ.
