Register for P3:18
January 26-27, 2018 – Camp Copass in Denton

Bringing awareness to concerned adults and
restoring relationships between parents and teens.

The mission of Parent Pipeline Project (P3) is to bring awareness to parents of the constant changing sexualized culture that has negative influence and impact upon our children. The heart of P3 is to reconnect the pipeline between the hearts of the parent and child ultimately bringing restoration to the family.

VISION

The vision of P3 began from my passion to educate teenagers on how to make healthy lifestyle choices in order to maintain sexual integrity – saving sex for a marriage – between one man and one woman.

My heart for teenagers led me to volunteer with Living Choices NTX, a sexual risk avoidance program serving 17 public schools in the Denton and North Texas area reaching more than 3500 students annually. I currently serve as a leader with Student Ministries at Lifegate Church.

Having the opportunity to be involved in the lives of teenagers for over 20 years and raising 2 daughters 11 years apart, I have witnessed a cultural shock. I believe this to be due greatly to the rapid changing technology sensation and the unlimited access people (adults and children) have to it.

Today, on average, children have a smart phone at age 10 – an internet metropolis of 24/7 access to anything and everything. Children (infants to teens) are the target of this hyper sexualized culture now more than ever in history. Most parents know far less technologically than their children.

I have realized while presenting life changing information to teenagers in school and in youth group, that if the same information is not being implemented at home and if the relationship between parent and child is disconnected, what I teach will not have long term positive effects on students. Once the heart to heart pipeline is disconnected between parent and child/teen, the pipeline is quickly filled with negative influence of this culture. A strong relationship between parent and teen is essential to the overall well-being of that child.

Parents fit in 4 categories:

  • Those who begin talking to their children at an early age about sexuality and continue that discussion throughout high school – this is the minority.
  • Those who are afraid to have the talk because its awkward and they aren’t even sure what to say
  • Those who have the talk one time and give one of 2 messages: don’t ever have sex because its bad or “make sure you use birth control”
  • Those who simply don’t care about this part of their child’s life.

My desire is 3 fold

  1. Educate parents on how to communicate this topic boldly and confidently with their children.
  2. Bring awareness to parents of the negative influence this culture has on our children and how to keep their children safe
  3. And most importantly guide parents into reconnecting heart to heart with their teen ultimately restoring the family.

    Unraveling Gender Confusion in Males and Females
    We live in a world of gender confusion and fluidity. Our culture has separated gender and sex. Ministering to youth in an already difficult age of confusion has become more complex when we seem unable to answer the most basic question of personal identity, “Who am I, really?” Gain insight and understanding into this difficult and often divisive topic from a ministry that has been redemptively journeying with sexually confused and marginalized individuals for more than two decades.

TESTIMONIALS

  • Children are growing up in amidst the "perfect storm" of a hyper-sexualized culture driven by the internet. Parents need practical tools to understand the issues and how to protect their children. P3 helps parents with both knowledge and resources.

    Tomi Grover Pure Hope Foundation
  • Honest. Gutsy. Direct. And loving. That is how I would describe the incredible P3 event. In an age where most are afraid to tackle the tough topics hurting our families, the speakers brought a welcome flood of both information and compassion. Fellow parents, pastors, grandparents, and all church leaders: we NEED this event. Our people are desperate for us to know how to lead in this critical hour!

    Lisa Cherry Frontline Family Ministries
  • Jesus said: “Wisdom is shown by her children.”  Wise decisions have ramifications through generations.  Likewise, Christian parenting is often a long walk in the same direction.  It takes time and energy, but the positive ramifications will be generational in scope.  P3 is one of those moments to step back, look at the parenting process, learn from the wisdom of others, get refreshed, then get back in the game.  Spending a weekend at P3 is a wise, parenting decision.

    Pastor Jim Mann New Life Church of Denton
  • P3 opened up our eyes to all of the hidden dangers in the world of technology. We knew of the obvious dangers but there were things we had never heard of. We have a 13 year old boy and a 1 year old boy and this was great for us to learn how to get involved with our older boy to protect him and also brought to light some things we will need to start soon with our 1 year old before it’s too late! Living in a world that is so distant from Christian values, where homosexuality is “ok” it can make it difficult to explain to your children on how to react to those situations they may encounter. We were armed with tools that would help us explain these sexuality differences and how they relate to the Bible without being judgmental to the other person. Since P3, my husband and I have been more open in communicating with our teenager about these dangers and we have been able to intervene in situations that could have become dangerous. This was a great learning experience that we will continue to participate in for years to come!

    Zachary & Elizabeth Hardowin
  • P3 was such a rewarding experience. Not only was the seminar touching, when I got to hear pure truth and love from both of my parents but it also brought us closer together as a family. After the conference, my dad and I did the 30 Day Challenge. At first, it was weird because we have never connected on such a deep level. But as the month continued, our relationship grew. Now that I am off at college, I am so grateful for the experience because it helped me build a close-knit relationship with my parents as I set off for adulthood and a new chapter in my life.
