As a dad, your role in your family is critically important. Your children and your wife are greatly dependent on you in many ways. But the day-in and day-out demands on you raise questions, challenges, issues, and struggles that are unique to you as a dad.
That's why the Dad Summit took place. Dads from across 28 US States and 5 other countries came together in an online webinar environment for five consecutive evenings to participate in the first ever Dad Summit during the week of Father's Day 2009.
10 Powerful Video Sessions to Help Dads as Fathers, Husbands, and Family Leaders
Video Session 1: A Man's Identity
In this opening session, we will look at how we as men gain our identity from our fathers, and how identity has the power to shape our lives. A man without identity cannot effectively lead his family, because if he doesn't know his identity, he is a follower -- not a leader. This critical, foundational session will be helpful to you as a dad for your own life as well as give you extremely important insights into raising boys.
Video Session 2: Turning A Father's Heart To His Children
In the very last verse of the Old Testament of the Bible, God said he would send Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord who would turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers. How does this prophecy relate to fathers and children today? What is the significance when a father's heart turns toward his children? What does this look like in a family today?
Video Session 3: Your Father Power
Father power is what you wield in your children's lives as their dad. It is the power of your influence that ripples across generations to come, affecting not only your children, but your children's children as well. It is more powerful than peer-pressure, greater than media influences, and superior to government institutions. It can determine how your children view God, how they handle life, and their future success or failure in marriage, parenting, and business. Father power can be used for good or bad, but it cannot be relinquished.
Video Session 4: Practical Marriage Tips For Dads
You'll laugh out loud as Todd, a husband and father of 8 children, shares his unique, refreshingly funny perspective on practical ideas for helping you encourage your wife, how to meet her needs, and ways to love her as Christ loved the church. This may be your favorite session of all... and your wife's too!
Video Session 5: What Dads Really Need To Know About Money and Finances Now
You may be suprised to know that the New Testament of the Bible contains nearly ten times as many verses regarding money and finances as salvation and faith. This session will focus on what dads need to know about money and finances today, the unchanging truths that Jesus taught about money, symptoms of bondage to "mammon," and how we can receive God's provision and financial blessings for our lives and for our family and others.
Video Session 6: Teaching Our Children About Money and Blessings
In this session, you will learn the most important aspects and principles of money and finances that must be modeled and taught to your children if they are to grow up free of the love of money, free to serve God, and equipped to live a life of financial abundance and be a blessing to other people and projects God may call them to support.
Video Session 7: Discipling Our Children Like Jesus
Many dads today are not teaching and discipling their children spiritually, but are instead "outsourcing" this responsibility to local churches and youth groups. Evidence that this "strategy" isn't working is the sad statistic that over 75% of teens and young adults leave church for good by their second year of college. This two-part session will reveal why this is happening, look at the ways Jesus discipled his followers, help us understand why parents are uniquely qualified to disciple their children, and what we can do as dads to disciple our children by following Jesus' model.
Video Session 8: Discipling Our Children Like Jesus, Part 2
This session will build upon session 7 with a closer look at four key aspects of how Jesus discipled His followers and how they apply to us dads in discipling our children. We will also look at how to teach our children to minister to others using Jesus' example with His disciples, and dangers to avoid in the process.
Video Session 9: Winning The War Over Pornography
Pornography is an addiction many dads struggle with today. Because of the Internet, it is now easily accessible and can be kept private. Our culture is permeated with sexual imagery through every media outlet. In this session, we will look at practical help for men who struggle with pornography and sexual temptation, and how to truly gain victory over i
Video Session 10: Guarding Your Children From Sexual Temptation
Youth today are especially targeted by and vulnerable to sexual imagery and temptation from many places. Cell phones, Internet, television, sports, friends, malls, movies, and more are all sources to view pornography and get involved in other sexual vices. In this session, we will look at ways parents can guard their children's eyes and hearts, and how to talk with your child or teen who may already be exposed to pornography.
