Welcome, Pastor!

An Invitation for Pastors

Strong churches make strong families…

As home educators, we have a common interest in strengthening families. We’d love to share the vision of home education and what it can mean for you and for your church.

2019 Convention

An Invitation for Pastors

Join us for a special workshop, “God, Church, and Home,” created specifically with pastors in mind and presented by Steve Demme. The workshop is designed to deepen your understanding of how the body of Christ and the homeschool family can work together to build each other up and extend God’s Kingdom. Steve has served as a pastor and continues to serve his four sons and their growing families. We would love to have you join us!


All pastors are welcome at the convention! Pastors who are not homeschooling, or who have never attended the convention before, are invited to attend as our guest! You are invited to attend all workshops, the used curriculum sale, and exhibit hall, plus the special, the pastors workshop above, all without cost.
