Oregon Christian Home Education Conference
June 23 & 24, 2017
Oregon Convention Center
Homeschooling provides excellence in academics, in character training, and in strong families. Homeschooling also presents challenges and opportunities to grow. Being with your children 24/7/365 can put unusual stress on marriages, finances, and parent-child relationships. But working through those challenges with the help of the Lord, provides the opportunity to disciple the next generation, to equip them in family life, and to develop close relationships between parents and children.
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
- living frugally
Each year, OCEANetwork scours the nation looking for speakers to equip you to homeschool and to make the most of the unique family dynamics of home education. These are speakers who know homeschooling first-hand. God has given them a message that resonates with the Christian homeschool community.
