The Idea:

A new way we want to serve our families at Berea Bible Church is by hosting “life skill” workshops. These workshops are intended to supplement the current efforts by parents in the preparation of the youth for manhood and womanhood.

The Reality:

Due to the demands, expectations and overall trajectory of academics today—basic life skills that are relevant to manhood and womanhood are simply not possessed by the youth today.

The youth’s upbringing revolves around scholastic endeavors and pursuits. Educational institutions, are primarily concerned and focused on grooming the youth for the workforce. Not much attention is given to matters that pertain to family life and adult responsibility.

The youth enter adulthood unprepared, naive, and inexperienced in practical matters of life. This deficiency prevents the youth today in embracing manhood and womanhood, and lack motivation to form God-honoring marriages and families.
