This year’s theme is “Telling the Coming Generation the Glorious Deeds of the Lord (Psa. 78:4)” and will feature Kevin Swanson (keynote) and Israel Wayne.
Homeschooled himself in the 1960’s and 70’s, Kevin Swanson and his wife, Brenda, are now homeschooling their five children. Kevin has 35 years of experience in the homeschooling movement and serves as Director of Generations with Vision (http://generationswithvision.com/) – a ministry he founded to strengthen homeschool families. As a father who wants to leave a godly heritage for his own five children, Kevin’s passion is to strengthen and encourage the homeschooling movement all over the world, and to cast a vision for generations to come.
