We understand dads. They have questions. “Do I have what it takes to lead my son? To connect with him in a meaningful way? Am I the man that he needs me to be?” The answer to all of those questions is a bold “YES!”. You are the man that God has put in his life, and God has qualified you and equipped you for the job. Here is the truth: Dads don’t need a bigger to-do list, and sons don’t need a perfect father. All your son needs is you!
At Born to Be Brave, you’ll learn how to: connect with your son in ways that are not awkward and discover the simple things you can do to go from being an active father to a strategic father. Most importantly, instead of leaving with more to do’s, you’ll leave knowing all that has already been done for you, to be the role model you’ve always wanted to be for your son. And you’re going to leave feeling brave. After all, you were born to be brave.
This event is designed for boys ages 7-17 and their fathers/father figures.

We’re turning up the volume at VBS to remind each kid that they can have confidence because of Jesus. When kids begin to see themselves the same way that Jesus sees them, then real confidence begins to take root and grow. You’ll get to spend a fun, memorable week teaching kids these foundational Truths to begin understanding the base of their confidence.
It’s going to be BIG! Connect Camp is a one-week, day camp experience filled with non-stop fun, engaging activities, daily faith-based lessons and the chance to make lasting friendships. It’s an unbelievable week coming right here to FBCIT!

We have a desire to love and lead families we meet into an everyday walk with Christ. We believe the “felt” needs of most young families today are:
Families are looking for meaningful moments and family rituals rooted in routine. As parents, they are looking for inspiration, guidance, and solutions to carve out time to create these moments and rituals which emerge to strengthen the family as a whole. These moments of connectivity build a resilience that helps families through the challenging moments in their lives.
Families want to be—and be perceived as—good parents and prioritize their role as such. Young families also strive to lead connected lives, which is a key measurement of success for them. They place a high degree of importance on finding their passion and doing good, which significantly impacts how they approach their families and the role of parenting. The need for connectivity and meaning in life drives their immediate family interactions and spills over into broader definitions of family to include friends, coworkers, and communities, often defined by shared interests or faith. In short, families are looking for a group to “do life” with.
Families are looking for help with life. Kraft has recently launched a new campaign called Family Greatly where the word "family" has become a verb. Family Greatly creates an environment where perfection is overrated, telling parents that it doesn’t matter how they family, if it is done with kindness, conviction, and purpose. Encouragement and Investment should be focused into these three categories: Finances, Marriage, and Parenting.
Families will only invest in what’s intentionally meaningful. Ministries need to stand for something to appeal to the meaningful connection parents desire.
To see families:
To promote and execute a ministry-wide culture of cultivating the family as the primary source for spiritual nurturing of the next generation.
To intentionally influence parents to be the spiritual leaders of the home.
To work hand-in-hand with parents through the Kidz and Students age-group ministries to:
Leading by example through your personal discipleship, relationships, and habits.
Intentionally taking advantage of everyday opportunities for spiritual instruction.
Creating memories through celebrating special occasions and transitions.
Serving together as a family with an eternal purpose.
