New Parent Partners Videos

A year or so ago, we introduced you to a new series called Parent Partners. A group of pastors and local ministry leaders who are part of the CVCA community have collaborated with leaders at CVCA to create Parent Partners – a place to begin conversations that can spur us on as parents. This unifying project goes beyond church and school walls and strives to bring us together as one body of Christ, challenging and encouraging each other in our call to “train a child as he should go.”

We are excited to kick off a new season, and wanted to give you a taste of what this is all about and what you can expect from some of the upcoming episodes. Take a look at what’s to come in today’s video.
