National Grandparent Conference 2021

As Ian Barnett, founder of the National Grandparent Movement, and his wife Rhonda entered the new season of becoming grandparents, Ian was challenged about 'the legacy' he was leaving.

This is the God-driven inspiration behind his passion and desire to hold an annual conference that sows into the lives of grandparents and ministry leaders. Grandparents often feel the burden of fast-paced change and the need to be better equipped to engage and positively influence the lives of their grandchildren. This conference is about equipping them.

Due to overwhelming demand, this year's National Grandparent Conference has been expanded to two days. This will provide more time for reflection, discussion, and engagement across the conference. Registration options are either in person or online.

The two days will be unique and cover different topics and challenges from each speaker. The focus will be on the influence grandparents have to pass on a faith legacy and to instill in their grandchildren greater confidence and purpose.

Josh McDowell will be speaking via video across both days, covering two different topics.
