Christian Teens and College Students Can Prepare for Family Restoration with April 18 "Day of Dialogue"

Focus on the Family is presenting a key opportunity to help equip and empower Christian high school and college students to respond in a loving, Christ-centered way when they encounter controversial topics in their public schools.

Many public schools are becoming more aggressive in promoting confusing sexual topics to kids. College students have also encountered one-sided discrimination, even to the point of getting bad grades on class assignments when they've expressed Biblical beliefs about marriage. This can often create a challenging situation for Christian teens.

But the good news is that when darkness increases, it creates an opportunity for the light of God's love to shine even brighter. That's why Focus on the Family has designed a national event--Day of Dialogue™--to equip students (age 13 and older) to express their Biblical viewpoint in a loving and redemptive way. Learn more about the event at DayofDialogue.com. If you have high school or college age students in your home--or you are a student yourself and have friends that are--we invite you to let them know about the Day of Dialogue™, happening on Monday, April 18, 2011.

The Day of Dialogue™ event encourages student-initiated conversations about the fact that God cares about every detail of students' lives, including their relationships, their sexuality and their souls. It challenges students to reflect the true model presented by Jesus Christ in the Bible--who didn't back away from speaking truth, but neither held back in pouring out His incredible, compassionate love for hurting and vulnerable people.

If you share this heart and vision for equipping Christian teens and college students, Focus on the Family encourages you to:

  1. Let the teens and college students in your life know about the Day of Dialogue™ event and encourage them to sign up to participate. Students can sign up as an individual or a group at the registration page.
  2. Students and parents are invited to "like" our Day of Dialogue Facebook® page and leave comments.
  3. Invite your church pastors--especially youth ministers--to make announcements about the opportunity to participate in the Day of Dialogue to their high school and college groups, in addition to posting about it on their Facebook® page and church website.

For more information, you can e-mail studentvoices@focusonthefamily.com or call the Day of Dialogue phone number: 888-317-5611.
