Westside Christian Academy in Westlake is pleased to announce that the 2014 Family Strong Series event will be “Revolutionary Parenting” with special guest speaker George Barna. The event will be held on Thursday, Oct. 16, at 7 p.m. at the Performing Arts Center of Westlake High School, 27830 Hilliard Blvd.

The event focuses on one of the greatest challenges to parenting in the 21st century. Parents recognize that increasingly they are competing for their children’s attention with many other voices in our culture. Those voices may not respect them or their values.

George Barna, author of "Revolutionary Parenting: Raising Your Kids to Become Spiritual Champions," examined the lives of thriving adult Christians and discovered the essential steps their parents took to shape their spiritual lives in childhood. He also learned surprising truths about which popular parenting tactics just aren’t working.

“We are excited to bring George Barna to the Cleveland area. Parents want their children to become authentic Christian adults who make a difference in their generation in our country,” said Jim Whiteman, headmaster of Westside Christian Academy.

The evening will also include door prizes, a book signing by George Barna, and a freewill collection.  

The event is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is requested and can be completed online at familystrongcleveland.org.

Any proceeds from the event will provide tuition assistance for Westside Christian Academy families in need.
