Parenting Seminar Series Spring 2019 Back to Blog »

Posted on:

We are so excited to share that Westside Christian will host a Parent Seminar Series this month. Two speakers will be at our campus to share their expertise on current topics that are relevant to teens. This came from a survey we conducted this past fall. Based on WCHS parent feedback we have picked two topics this year and hope to grow the program next year to continue to offer relevant resources to our community. Please join us to hear these speakers for 40-minute presentations followed by Q&A forum discussions in our library. We hope to see you there!


Micah Rydmark is the Director of The Reality Project for First Image. The Reality Project teaches sexual education units at schools in the Pacific Northwest, including WCHS. This event coincides with the week Micah will be at WCHS sharing with students in health class. Micah will be sharing how to define sex and the impact of sexual behavior and pornographic content. This is a great opportunity to ask questions and learn how to discuss sex with your teens. Micah is a former youth pastor and holds his Bachelors in Church Leadership and a Bachelors in Youth Ministry from Multnomah University.


Jamie Harris is the CEO and Founder and Dylan Juran is the Parental Education Advisor of Satellite Gaming, a nonprofit that works with local schools and communities to create positive, bully-free, shoulder to shoulder gaming experiences. Jamie and Dylan hope to use gaming as a missional opportunity to introduce teens to Jesus Christ. They will be sharing with our families about the topic of technology and gaming and will be discussing topics such as monitoring screen time, language and content on the internet, and how to supervise teenage technological use.

There is no cost to attend these events. These seminars are for Christian parents and guardians of teens and pre-teens. Please feel free to extend the invite to your friends, neighbors, and church community. Please RSVP to one or both of these events by clicking here!
