Pure Faith (Retreat Day, 7th – 12th grade)
At the heart of a Catholic education is a culture that forms the entire person, leading students to feel valued and respected. As a result, they’re free to learn. To shape and strengthen this culture at your school, Jason Evert and Chris Stefanick team up to present two powerful talks, “Romance without Regret” and “The Core of the Gospel.” Chris’s presentation explains that the heart of the Christian message doesn’t merely reveal who God is; it reveals the dignity of every person. Meanwhile, Jason’s talk explains why and how teens can embrace the virtue of chastity. Together, the message of Pure Faith is impacting schools and changing lives across the country.
No Imitations! A Chastity Presentation (7th grade – college)
While giving credence to the dangers of premarital sex, Chris goes beyond fear tactics and “just say no’s.” Instead he offers teens something to say “Yes!” to: Health, happiness, authentic relationships, and the love they were made for…everything else is an imitation! Upbeat, passionate, humorous, and sensitive enough for a mixed crowd, No Imitations! has changed lives and impacted the culture at hundreds of Catholic and public high schools across the country and beyond.
Raising Holy Kids in a Postmodern World (Parents)
Parents, do you know what you’re up against? The post-modern world that young people find themselves in provides no moral and religious framework to help them make sense out of life. It’s no wonder that according to a recent CDC survey 17% of young people had considered suicide. Learn about the cultural factors have robbed teens of faith and hope, and how you as a parent can give it back to them.
