Here at Oak Ridge, we believe that you- the parent, are the primary discipler of your child. Believe it or not, no one has as strong a voice in your kids’ life as you do. But today our kids are facing issues that we did not have to face when we were young- in some instances even thinking about bringing up these topics with our kids can be scary. It has left many parents asking, “What’s the right thing to do. . . What are the right things to say. . . what’s the right way to bring it up?”  With this in mind, we want to come alongside you and equip you to be as effective as you can be at instructing and preparing your child or student to do life God’s way.


Start Here:
