Teach Them Diligently Christian Homeschool Convention

Homeschool Convention Speakers

Beyond the fellowship, renewal, and encouragement, Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Conventions are also known for great speakers. When we talk about a waterfall of encouragement, this is what we are talking about. Be prepared!! There will be more great speakers at a Teach Them Diligently event than you can hear. Each hour, you will be privileged to hear some of the best speakers addressing families in the country. So start in prayer, and you are sure to be revived and refreshed by the great group of speakers at Teach Them Diligently this year. There is something for everyone.

In 2017, our conventions will take place in Rogers, AR, Nashville, TN, Sandusky, OH, and Atlanta, GA. Our speaker information will be updated regularly and we wanted to give you a sneak peek at some of the awesome ladies and gentlemen already on the list! God has brought together so many great speakers that 2017 is guaranteed to be AMAZING!
