Every man encounters challenges in life’s arena. We often face uncertainties or difficulties that can test our integrity, resilience and character. But God has called us to live our lives with passion and perseverance, to run the race set before us and to run to win. 


“Run in such a way that you may win.” 1 Corinthians 9:24


To meet our challenges successfully we need to be prepared. We need to be trained, ready to deal with the problems or tough times that can affect our most important relationships, our work and our inner or spiritual life.

‘In the Arena’ is a men’s event that will share helpful strategies to strengthen and empower you for whatever challenges you face now or in the future. Speakers Rob Parsons and Gerrit Bantjes will present biblical principles and insights they have seen work through their experience of both triumph and adversity. They will talk about critical areas of everyday life such as friendships, finance, character and career. Their encouragement will leave you better prepared to run life’s race. 


Rob Parsons, OBE, is the founder and CEO of Care for the Family. He is a bestselling author of over 20 books, including The Heart of Success and The Sixty Minute Father. He has spoken to governments, many blue-chip companies and over a million individuals. 



Gerrit Bantjes has been a British Army paratrooper and a fitness coach to Cardiff Rugby Club and he currently works full time for Care for the Family. Gerrit is also a husband and father with real compassion and understanding of life’s highs and lows.

Raising children in restricted societies

12 June 2018

Anthony Collins Solicitors

View on map

TCKs live among many different cultures and societies. For TCKs from the UK and other western families that can mean growing up in a restrictive society. These societies vary hugely from those with conservative values and moderate limitations through to others that are heavily restrictive and segregated.

Our childhood experiences help shape us for the rest of our lives, and so we will be considering the ways in which these societies affect our TCKs growing up there. We will also focus on strategies that families have adopted as they have tried to ensure the best experiences and outcomes for their children.

This day event will seek to cover, amongst other things:

How does growing up in a restricted society affect our TCKs – both positively and negatively? What particular issues do teenagers (and their parents) face? How do we address the different issues affecting boys and girls? What can we learn from how agencies have supported their families in restricted societies? How can we help TCKs from restricted societies reintegrate back into life in the UK when the time comes? Different presenters will speak from their own experiences in a number of countries with varying levels of cultural conservatism. Our speakers for the day have experience of living in Central Asia and the Middle East and have teenage children of their own.

The cost is £20 to people from GC member agencies and churches. Cost for non GC members is £50. Refreshments and lunch are included in the price. Tea and coffee will be available from 10:15am.

Please note: if you are a TCK parent/grandparent/extended family member, or church member caring for TCKs/families overseas - and your church is not a member of GC - please choose the £20 member rate and add an explanatory note in the ‘dietary or access requirements’ box below.

The labels are no longer so simple - young people today are being encouraged to embrace fluidity in both gender identity and sexual orientation.

Confusion abounds for them - and for churches who seek to be a safe and welcoming place for all. As everything changes around us how can we as church leaders encourage all to root their identities in Christ - and so build our churches on firmest of foundations?

Dr Tim Keller (Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York) will be helping us answer this question in two main sessions alongside input from Kathy Keller, and the team from www.livingout.org. For more information and to book, visit www.livingout.org/identity-in-christ
