Homeschool Family Strengthening Summit

Bringing Encouragement and Helps To Homeschool Families Worldwide

Teach Them Diligently is a homeschool event focused on the calling of parents by God to family discipleship and strengthen your family relationships through Biblical homeschooling. We believe that every family is called to Teach Them Diligently, according to Deuteronomy 6:7, and we’re here to help you do that!

Teach Them Diligently LIVE Stream To Your Home

When: August 7-8, 2020, 
WhereYOUR HOME OR ANYWHERE ELSE YOU WANT TO WATCH
   

Why don’t you… Get some friends and watch the event together. You’ll enjoy the fellowship and the sessions. Group babysitting, anyone?!? Each person would need a ticket to be able to access the recordings for the sessions you aren’t able to watch.      

TTD Livestream tickets also include lifetime access to all the recordings.

We thank God for the opportunity to host a small in-person event and live stream it around the world. There has NEVER been a more important time to stay encouraged and focused on the mission at hand, and we are here to help. Tickets are only $49 for either the Live Event or the ticket to watch it all at home. The sessions will be presented and recorded live from stage, including a Live Q & A with our speakers. This event could not come at a better time for families, so be sure to sign up today! 

What is the focus of this event?

This event provides the unique opportunity to be strengthened not only by the sessions given by our fantastic speakers but also to be uplifted and encouraged by fellowship with fellow homeschool parents, plus there is just nothing like a live event. Don’t start your school year before attending this event!

Why is this event valuable to homeschool families?

We are focusing on strengthening homeschool families as they begin this school year. As Homeschoolers we have the opportunity to disciple and teach our children in a way that others may not. Which makes it all the more important that we know What we are doing; How we should be doing it; and What we stand to gain by doing it.

Why does it have to be a face to face event?

There is just no substitute for the energy that radiates from a live event. The connections you make and the experience a live event provides can not be matched. People are meant to be with people. We learn and encourage best when we are with a community in-person.

Why does it matter that the videos are recorded live before an audience? 

If you can not make it to the live in-person event, the next best thing is watching the livestream of the speakers on stage. This is not a collection of info provided across a desk on a Zoom call. The live stream will be from stage in front of a live audience. The delivery from the speakers and the energy from the audience can not be matched, and you will benefit even while watching from home.

Why these speakers? 

Each speaker touches on a specific aspect of homeschooling and family that when put together will thoroughly equip parents to strengthen their families. As you will see from our speaking schedule—which can be seen on this webpage—the speakers address reaching the heart of your families as well as the day to day function of running a homeschool successfully.

Can we watch with friends? 

What a great idea!! Gather some friends together to make an event out of the live streams. You’ll get the same benefit of fellowship and fun that can be found in Greenville. You will all want to have a ticket, though, so you have access to the recordings in the days ahead.

Workshop Schedules and Frequently Asked Questions

How Many People Will be Able To Attend The Live, In Person Event?  Usually, a Teach Them Diligently event will have over 100 homeschool speakers, with 1,000 families in attendance and over 5,000 people in the building. This event is much more intimate. We can only accept 170 tickets for this live in-person event to allow for proper social distancing measures in our current climate. We are thrilled to be able to gather in person with as many as we can, though!

How Will This Event Differ From A Normal Teach Them Diligently Event? This is truly a live Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Event with the same Family- and Gospel-Focus you have come to expect from our organization. Every session will be in-front of a live audience which will re-create the same energy, encouragement, and know-how of one of our traditional events so that even from the comfort of your own home, you can feel like you’re actually there.

What Are Advantages To Attending In Person? This event will provide substantial opportunity to speak with experts and speakers about the upcoming school year, not only through the day but at the special lunch and fellowship time we have incorporated into the schedule. Each person in attendance will be invited to join us for a catered lunch onsite.

Will there Be An Exhibit Hall? There will be books available to purchase from our speakers and stores. This will not be of the same scale as a traditional Teach Them Diligently event, but there will be resources available onsite.

What Type Of Safety Measures Are You Implementing Onsite? The rooms will be set up with social distancing measures in place and a quick temperature check will be given as attendees check in to make sure no one attends with a fever. Attendees will have the freedom to choose whether to wear masks or not. Rooms will be thoroughly cleaned during the day. Air purifiers will be in place throughout the space to clean the air throughout the day. The in-person meeting is built with common-sense to allow networking and connection to other homeschoolers while minimizing any risks of illness.

How Many Sessions Will Be Available Onsite? Most hours of the day will have 3 workshop options available to you onsite. The one in the auditorium will be streamed live on Friday, while the other 2 rooms will be broadcast on Saturday. The complete workshop schedule is available on this page.

Will The Sessions Be Recorded? All sessions will be recorded so we can broadcast as a live stream. Tickets to the Live In-person event include lifetime access to the recordings. Therefore, you will not miss a single session.

May I Bring My Children?We are not able to provide a children’s program at this time, so if you bring your children each of them will require a ticket to the event.  

Are The Tickets Per Family Or Per Person? The cost for the event is for each person. This means that if you bring children that will use a seat then you must purchase a ticket. Furthermore, these seats at the live in-person event are non-refundable. We have every reason to believe after researching this thoroughly that the event will move forward. Tickets come with access to the live stream and lifetime access to replays.

If I Can’t Make It To Greenville, Can I Still Enjoy The Sessions? There are tickets available for just the internet livestream if you can not make it to the in-person event. These tickets are the same cost as the in-person tickets and include lifetime access to the recordings.

Don't miss out on this life-changing opportunity for you and your children!

And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house.

Deuteronomy 6:7
