WHAT IS IT?
This D.I.G.I.T.A.L event was dreamed up by our student ministries staff. Our hope for this event is to support families and raise awareness as we navigate our Christian walk in a digital world. We know that it may not be the device itself that is an issue but what we desire and where our heart lies.
The event is a 3-night series January 24-26

Defend Young Minds
Kristen A. Jenson, M.A.
Kristen A. Jenson is the founder of Defend Young Minds™ (formerly Protect Young Minds®) and #1 best-selling author of the Good Pictures Bad Pictures series of read-aloud books, which have translations in 10 languages and are now augmented by a guidebook for professionals which supports child therapists and educators. She is also the executive producer of the Brain Defense™: Digital Safety curriculum—a powerful and engaging video-based course for families and educators.
Kristen is a positive voice for raising empowered, resilient, screen-smart kids who know how and why to reject pornography. She instills hope and confidence and leaves her audiences with pragmatic advice they can act on immediately to defend young minds.
Kristen has raised her strong voice at international conferences and symposiums such as the United Nations Civil Societies Conference and the National Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation Global Summit. She has testified before the Washington State Senate Law and Justice Committee on the public health crisis of pornography, and she is a trusted guest on a variety of media platforms as she speaks up for defending children from pornography and all forms of sexual exploitation.
Kristen received her bachelor’s degree in English Literature and her master’s degree in Organizational Communication. She is a mother of three and grandmother of two, and currently lives with her husband and awfully cute dog in Washington State.
Night #1 will be for adults only (childcare provided). We will hear from Kristen Jensen from Defend Young Minds. Their mission is to help parents raise empowered, resilient, screen-smart kids.
She will be sharing about smartphones and our kids!
This will be a LIVE webinar with Q&A and great giveaways!
Students will hear from ministry leaders as we speak on what our faith looks in a digital age.
Now what? This night is for the entire family! We will have roundtable discussions with other families; you will also have an opportunity to make a plan as a family.
