Homeschool Leadership Conference

Thursday, May 9, 2024 | 8:30 am - 2:00 pm

Vicki Stormoen's Session at 11:00am
Developing a Vision for Your Homeschool Group

What kind of legacy are you leaving for your homeschool group? Are you planning for the future? Do you find yourself looking around and wondering who will fill your shoes when God calls you away from your ministry?

When you are in the throes of leadership, trying to manage communication, programming, relationships, conflict, paperwork, and more, it’s easy to overlook or push planning for your departure to the back burner. Whether you have plans to stay in your position for just a few months or another decade, it’s vital to the future of your group that you be raising up the next generation of leaders.

So, how does one do that with all of the other responsibilities we have as leaders?

We invite you to join us this year for CHEA’s “Leaving a Legacy” Conference. Our knowledgeable and encouraging speakers will explore this theme of raising the next generation of homeschool leaders. Our prayer is that you will become better equipped and encouraged as you lead your homeschool community.
