Homeschooling is an exciting and challenging adventure, but sometimes it is also difficult and discouraging. What is your source of strength and hope for the adventure? Our hope is in the Lord. He gives us strength for each new day. Apply this truth to your homeschool journey. Join more than 1,000 homeschool parents for encouragement and support as we renew our vision for Christian parenting and discipleship through home education.

The Oregon Christian Home Education Conference helps you seize the opportunities and meet the unique challenges of your homeschool by providing sessions on

  • how-to homeschool including teaching specific skills and ages
  • beginning homeschooling
  • choosing curriculum
  • homeschool high school
  • biblical marriage advice
  • biblical parenting and child-training
  • parental-rights and homeschool freedoms

Each year, OCEANetwork prayerfully seeks speakers to equip you to homeschool and to make the most of the unique family dynamics of home education.
