Navigating Today’s Culture: Helping Parents Guide Teens and Adult Children 

Tuesday, December 5th, 2023 

6:00 – 8:00 PM ET 


Webinar Presenter 

Jim Burns is the president of HomeWord. He speaks to thousands of people around the world each year. He has more than 2 million resources in print in 20 languages. He primarily writes and speaks on the values of HomeWord, which are: Strong Marriages, Confident Parents, Empowered Kids, and Healthy Leaders.

Jim and his wife, Cathy, live in Southern California and have three grown daughters, Christy, Rebecca, and Heidi; three sons-in-law, Steve, Andy and Matt; and three grandchildren, James, Charlotte and Huxley. 



In the not-too-distant past, understanding teens and doing life with adult children seemed easier and much simpler. Today’s Gen Z and Millennials have been raised in a vastly different culture than previous generations, and many reject their parents’ morals and values. According to recent Barna research, many are straying from faith, with twice as many atheists in Gen Z than Millennials. Many parents, church leaders, and counselors are baffled by the choices this generation is making about key issues in their lives. In this workshop, ministry leaders will become students of this generation’s perspective and look for practical ways to help teens and young adults navigate this culture with practical ways to become responsible adults who love God and make good decisions.

  1. Develop insight into the changing culture of today’s teens and emerging adults and learn eight principles to bring healthy boundaries and expectations to clients
