Currently there are many references on parenting available. Bookshops are full of books that tell you what to do with your family but many of these books have no reference to God. In many of such books, the end justifies the means but in the working of God, the means is just as important as the end.
Grace Community International (GCI) and Raising Future Parents of The Navigators-Kenya have designed programs to equip parents on how to train, instruct, guide coach and discipline their children using Biblical principles.
The parenting classes are ideal for parents with children below 18 years. Services are also extended to teachers dealing with children and organized groups such as churches and schools.

The authority and supremacy of God’s word
