Teach Them Diligently FAQ's

General FAQ's

Teach Them Diligently hopes to encourage families and parents in the discipleship of their children.

Homeschool is not the Gospel, and just because parents homeschool their children does not mean their children will honor God with their talents when they leave the home. We homeschool to disciple our children and to equip them to glorify God when they leave the home. 

Christian parents do understand this, but they need constant encouragement, because discipleship is hard work.

Teach Them Diligently is a tool to refresh the vision of parents and to encourage them to disciple—to not lose focus of the Center of our homeschool, which is Jesus Christ.

The entire event is soaked in prayer, and the Gospel is prevalent throughout the event. This is what sets us apart and why the fans that know us are so enthusiastic. Teach Them Diligently is distinctive, and you can see this through the families that have experienced our events.

Teach Them Diligently was originally organized by a non-profit mission-board called Worldwide Tentmakers.  

More recently, Teach Them Diligently has been split out from under the mission board to a separate for-profit company that shares leadership.

For instance, both Teach Them Diligently and Worldwide Tentmakers have the same President. However, Teach Them Diligently funds flow directly to ministries that we support overseas.

A portion of every dollar spent with Teach Them Diligently is transferred directly to Worldwide Tentmakers to support its ministries. We no longer funnel money through expenses of the conferences. Instead, we pull money directly off the top and send it overseas.

Currently, Worldwide Tentmakers supports ministries in the Far East, Poland, and Scotland. We are in countries considered open to the Gospel as well as Restricted Access Countries.

Primarily, our ministries are involved in education in some level overseas because of the opportunity it provides to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Because we are a mission board, the Gospel is central to everything that we do.


Worldwide Tentmakers exists to promote, prepare, and place self-supporting witnesses worldwide.  We believe that business has great potential as a conduit to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ

We use Paul as an example, just as most mission agencies do. Paul was a tentmaker in Corinth, Ephesus, Thessalonica, and other places while planting churches in those cities. 

So, in a sense, one of the purposes of Teach Them Diligently is to introduce the ministries of Worldwide Tentmakers to homeschool families.

We connect these two views directly to the Gospel. The Gospel literally means news. It is news of the most amazing redemption story ever told. It is news of the Grace and Mercy of Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ is the One foretold to sit on the throne of David and preside over an ever increasing kingdom (Is. 9:7)  Jesus Christ commands before His ascension into heaven, “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost; Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you:” (Mt 28:18-20). 

To summarize, because Christ has authority, He is commanding us to make disciples and to disciple. To do what He did during His earthly ministry.  Where does His authority come from? Well, the Father gave it to Him, and beyond that, He created us, and His Word is true and unwavering.

In Romans 5, Paul directly connects the Gospel or News of Jesus Christ to Genesis by saying that through one man sin came into the human race and through one man we are redeemed. This directly connects the creation of man to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. To undermine, the first three chapters of Genesis is to undermine the Gospel.

Don’t get me wrong: God does not need us to tell Him Who He is. And, the story is true whether we believe it or not, “…For I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham” (Lk. 3:8).

However, we believe that to undermine the creation account found in Genesis is to attack the Gospel.  Any description by man of how the world came to be must be based on the account found in Genesis-include a first Adam and second Adam-or they are undermining the Good News of Jesus Christ.

If you do not believe in a Young Earth as fact, you are still welcomed to come; however, we do ask you to respect our views on this issue.  As you can see, we believe it is quite important!

Just as is customary with any ticketed event, we are not able to offer refunds or cancellations once a registration has been processed.  Though we regret that this is the case, we are not able to accommodate massive changes or transfers of registrations. All registrations are considered final.

If you register for one location but have a conflict, we do usually accept transferring your registration to another Teach Them Diligently event as long as tickets remain for that event. You may not transfer your ticket from one year to the next. However, this is a process that must be approved and manually handled by one of our staff in the back end of the website system.

Our goal is to be as family-friendly as possible, and we do not want parents to miss any sessions.
