Perhaps the most overlooked potential NCYC attendee, parents can serve as a rich source of support, formation, and faith growth to the entire pilgrimage process. This webinar will examine how and why we should be recruiting parents to attend, what they can expect during NCYC, and how we can follow up with them afterwards as we partner more intentionally to bring home the faith and grow the domestic church.
