Not only does LCMI minister to children through camps with the Gospel truth, LCMI also ministers to parents through seminars to guide, encourage, equip, and to bring whole families to Jesus Christ through His Word. Our goal is to conduct a parents’ seminar at every mobile camp we hold in order to strengthen entire family units in the ways of the Lord and help create environments of love, respect, commitment, and longevity in family relationships.
As their children participate in camp activities, parents gather together to hear teachings on two topics: “The 7 Keys to Raising Godly Children” and “Secrets to a Happy Marriage”. In these seminars we discuss how to build and maintain a healthy marriage marked by mutual love and respect as well as how to raise children in a godly way and to “train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old, he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)
There is also a Q&A session to allow parents to ask their pressing concerns anonymously and give the staff the chance to help bring direction and hope to oftentimes strained and desperate situations. Alcoholism, poverty, and abuse are common problems in many families, and LCMI seeks to bring the light and share the love and power of Jesus Christ.
By ministering to both parents and children, LMCI has gotten the chance to see parents encouraged and families changed by the Holy Spirit through these seminars.
