Whoever thus serves Christ is acceptable to God and approved by men. So then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding. (Romans 14:18-19)
Serving Christ. Creating Peace. Upbuilding. Be refreshed in these truths when you come for a relaxing weekend. Through speaker sessions, round table discussions, and plenty of networking/fellowship time, you’ll be equipped with biblical skills that will help you thrive in your role as a homeschooling parent and leader.
This retreat is a benefit for leaders who are part of groups active in the CHEC homeschool group network. (Spouses are welcome too.) Are you are homeschool leader? Join our homeschool group directory to stay connected with us.
CHEC is able to cover more than 50% of the actual cost of this event because of the generosity of families who support our ministry financially.
- All active leaders (and their spouses) of homeschool groups who are currently part of the CHEC homeschool group network are invited.
