GHEA understands the unique needs of young people ages 13–19, and so we have developed a strong track especially for these ages. Parents who want to make the conference a real family growth experience can enroll their teens in the Teen Track for just an additional $50. Teens can enjoy the following workshops designed especially for them. Parents who have registered for the Full Conference are welcome at any of the sessions.
“We will not hide them from their children, telling to the generation to come
the praises of the Lord,
and His strength, and His wonderful works that He has done.” Psalm 78:4
This passage has been the cornerstone of the Little Patriots children’s program for the past 17 years. It began in 1997 when a small group of homeschooled students envisioned a special and meaningful program for children whose parents were attending the annual GHEA convention. Not wanting it to simply be a “children’s program” or “babysitting service,” the Little Patriot creators desired a ministry that would focus on God and country! Their mission was to encourage, inspire, and motivate other homeschool children to value their American heritage of freedom, understand the importance of character, and to know that the Lord is God. They sought a ministry that would help shape the future leaders of the world. With much prayer and enthusiasm, Little Patriots was born. There were about 80 children at the first ever Little Patriot’s conference, and many of those children are now homeschooling their own children. Through the ministry of Little Patriots, thousands have heard true stories about our American heroes, learned about the character and virtue of George Washington, and have been encouraged to follow Christ. Ronald Reagan, our 40th President, once said, “Without God there is no virtue because there is no prompting of the conscience…without God there is a coarsening of society; without God democracy will and cannot long endure…If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under.”
We are so excited to have Little Patriots back this year! The theme for Little Patriots 2014 is “In God We Trust.” Join us as we learn to put our trust in the Lord and not fear the future. Little Patriots weekend is led by outstanding home-educated young people who will guide your children as we learn about the “superheroes” of liberty who trusted God for their future. Our mascot “Trusty” and his friends will create a great environment for your child to grow in faith while having loads of fun. Some of the topics we will explore are how to conquer pride, how to stand alone, and how to be wise in God’s eyes. Sign up your children now, and don’t miss out on another exciting LP adventure!
