The Homeschool Event of the Year!

Real Faith for the Real World Teen Track

Has your teen had their faith questioned by peers, classmates, or co-workers?

As homeschool parents, our responsibility is not to insulate them from life; rather, we must be very intentional in equipping them for the inevitable challenges that they will face—it’s not a matter of if they will face challenges, but when.

Perhaps the most striking trend in American religion in recent years has been the growing percentage of adults who do not identify with a religious group. And the vast majority of these religious “nones” (78%) say they were raised as a member of a particular religion before shedding their religious identity in adulthood.*

The Bible instructs us that we must be anchored in the faithful Word, as we have been taught, that we may be able, by sound doctrine, both to exhort and to convince those who would contradict it (Titus 1:9).

Unless our children are secure and conversant in their faith, we have missed the most important aspect of their education.

Each year, the Real Faith for the Real World teen track is a huge hit with both teens and their parents. It is designed to equip teens to know what they believe and why they believe it so they can stand strong in the faith and engage the world with the truth of Christ in intelligent, gracious, winsome, and compelling ways.

We often hear great reports of discussion that extends far beyond the convention, creating great conversation between parents and teens and serving to help equip those teens for their road ahead.

Thank to our sponsors, this track is crazy-affordable—a ticket to hear these speakers at a similar event would normally cost $40 or more!


We’ve taken our kids to the teen track even when they were nowhere near teenagers. The speakers are very engaging, and our whole family spends most of the convention in the teen track. So much good stuff to learn for everyone, no matter their age. I’d gladly pay $55/person (instead of total) to come for JUST this track!

I absolutely squealed with delight when I saw J. Warner Wallace on the speaker list for Cincinnati 2017!

I know my local friends think I’m crazy to travel 2+ hours…when we have a “perfectly good” convention right here within 30 minutes of my house. I usually go to both, but if I had to pick one, I would—no contest—pick the Midwest Homeschool Convention [there are three other regional conventions to choose from] in Cincinnati every time, simply because of the phenomenal line-up of incredible apologetics teaching offered every year with their Teen Track.

This year, J. Warner Wallace—the staunch-atheist-turned-Christian cold case homicide detective who wrote Cold Case Christianity, God’s Crime Scene, and just released Cold Case Christianity for Kids—is one of the teen track speakers. Do I want my kids to have the experience of hearing a defense of the faith from someone who came to his belief because he decided to test the claims of Christianity the same way cold case detectives test criminal evidence? You couldn’t pay me to miss it! And when you add in the world-renowned abortion apologist Scott Klusendorf and Dr. Jay Wile’s fantastic science-focused teaching—I’d go so far as to suggest that your kids are being deprived of an incredible learning opportunity from outstanding apologists if you don’t go!

Cold-Case Resurrection

The Intolerance of Tolerance: The Case Against Moral Relativism

“Who are you to push your views on me?” If you’re a Christian, you’ve heard that said many times. Indeed, at both the street and academic levels, moral relativism remains the single biggest challenge to a Christian worldview. Beginning with Kant and the empiricists of the 17th and 18th centuries, objective moral rules were either…

No More Mr. Nice Guy! Answering Arguments for Abortion Rights

It’s one thing to be gracious. It’s quite another to be a “nice” guy or gal who never stands up for truth because you fear what people think. Make no mistake! Leftists want Christians to just shut up and bow to the reigning secular culture. They use clichés and assertions to hide the fact they…

What do you think is the best evidence for macroevolution that warrants you calling it a fact? Tim Barnett taught evolution in a science public high school, so he knows the arguments in the…
