Philip Telfer

Media Talk 101

Phillip Telfer has ministered to youth and families for over 30 years, sharing at camps, retreats, schools, conferences, and churches around the country.  He is the director of the non-profit ministry Media Talk 101 and author of the books Media Choices: Convictions or Compromise? and the young adult novel Why Save Alexander. He wrote, produced, and co-directed the award-winning documentary Captivated: Finding Freedom in a Media Captive Culture, and founded the annual Christian Worldview Film Festival and Filmmakers Guild.

Phillip loves Jesus, his family, and his local church. He’s finicky about coffee so he took up the hobby of home roasting and when he needs to unplug, he can be found in his workshop crafting things from wood. He and his wife Mary have been happily married for thirty-two years and are blessed with four wonderful children, one fantastic son-in-law, and three precious grandchildren. Phillip and Mary homeschool through high school and have graduated three of their children with one left to go. 

Dads are wired different than Moms and have unique contributions when it comes to discipleship and education of their kids. Phillip will share some stories of his personal adventures over the last 20 years with his children and a few helpful tips he has learned on the journey. Learn how dads can integrate multiple subjects into real-life experience through the things they love to do. 

We are inspired by the stories of Daniel in the lion’s den and his three companions in the fiery furnace, but have we given enough thought to the foundation that must have been laid in their lives to help them thrive in Babylon?  They were not only captive in a pagan culture but their own people had been sent into exile by God on account of their own unfaithfulness and corruption.  What made these young men different along with other great men like Ezra and Nehemiah?  This workshop explores this timely theme and how it applies to our present culture. 

For over 100 years, American culture has had an ever-increasing infatuation with electronic media and entertainment.  A handful of thoughtful skeptics in the past contemplated the long-term effects on family, society, and individuals.  Now we are reaping the consequences as more and more studies confirm what some had rightly predicted. That is, our ability to be attentive is steadily eroding. We are becoming less attentive to our families, study, work, and most importantly, to God. What are the results and what will it take to regain the ground that has been lost? 

You may be surprised to learn that the Bible teaches us seven things about Jesus between the age of 12 and when He began His public ministry. Dads and Sons alike will benefit from the example Jesus gave us. These truths provide a wonderful path for boys and young men to follow.

The first time Rhonda taught this message for moms raising boys was at a homeschool convention. The room was filled to capacity with standing room only. As Rhonda spoke moms hung on her every word. Afterward mother after mom came to ask for insights into their own journey as a mom guiding their sons toward manhood. From this experience Rhonda knew she needed to write a book to mentor moms in this incredible ministry of raising sons to men. Upon publication, her book: Moms Raising Sons to Be Men was selling over 1,000 copies per month because moms are desperate for mentors. Rhonda homeschooled so she gets it! She’s raised 2 sons and 2 daughters. Her boys grew up to become: one a fighter pilot and the other a worship leader (her eldest son is adopted). This seminar will encourage and inspire moms who are desperate to help guide their sons toward building a life of no regret. With practical insights, humor and biblical principles this seminar will give you the hope and inspiration you’re looking for as a mom homeschooling her son. (Visit NoRegretsWoman.com to listen to Rhonda & Dr. James Dobson sharing insights into raising godly sons.) 

Regrets? What does she mean “homeschooling without regrets?” I hear ya, friend. And I’m glad you asked. Because in the many years that my husband and I have ministered to homeschooling families, we’ve learned a thing or two. You get one shot at this homeschooling, parenting thing, so you need insights from people who have walked the path ahead of you. There is a way to homeschool your kids so that one day when you look back you won’t be wishing for a do-over. And Rhonda Stoppe is here to show you how. In this session, Rhonda will unpack Seven Ways to Homeschool without Regrets. 

Remember the mom you meant to be? You know, she was kind and patient and super excited to homeschool her kids…Yea, her. You may be wondering what happened to the mom you imagined you would be. And even more importantly, you might be wishing you knew the secret to becoming that mom. You’re not alone. Lots of moms feel this way, but wrestle with mom-guilt so they don’t tell anyone about their struggles. Rhonda Stoppe has been in your shoes. As a young mom, when she knew she wasn’t the mom she dreamed she’d be, she looked to older women whom she wanted to emulate. “I am confident my friendship with these women is what God used to help me become a mom without regrets,” says Stoppe. In this session, like a good friend over coffee, Rhonda will share with you the secrets to becoming the mom you always hoped to be. (And if you’re doing ok as a mom, join us anyway for some laughs and insights––you won’t regret it!) 

Homeschool and housework and meal prep – Oh My! There is just so much work to be done when you educate your kids at home. Can I get a witness? And yet, when you’re doing all the things, it’s easy to fall into survival mode and miss opportunities to savor the moments. In this session, Rhonda will unpack 4 Vital steps to teach you how to rest in a way that guards against burn out and refreshes your spirit

Marilyn Boyer

Character Concepts

“She’s so ENCOURAGING!”  That’s what moms say about Marilyn Boyer, home-schooling author and mother of 14.  Marilyn’s heartfelt speaking style is both challenging and comforting, her content based on over thirty-five years of experience in home-schooling her own children and her passion for encouraging young moms.  Her many years in the trenches have convinced her that the most important part of an education is the building of godly character.  That’s why she created Character Concepts, a Bible-based curriculum for kids from preschool through high school that includes real-life examples from history.  Learn more of her resources for teaching character to kids at http://www.CharacterConcepts.com and join her on her weekly podcast- Moments with Marilyn.  

Ever feel like you are trying to explain a concept to your children and their minds are somewhere far away?  Do you feel discouraged when they act like school is a drudge? To help them fulfill their life calling, we must develop a specific plan for training each one. Come and learn how to work “with” the uniqueness of your child. Escape the bondage of expectations and set your child free to pursue his passions and be the whole person God wants him to be.  

Were you ever bored in history class? So was Marilyn Boyer! History is not just a boring list of names and dates. It is the breathtaking panorama of human experience! Real people, real lives, real adventures. For nearly forty years, Marilyn has been learning history with her children in a way that is not only fascinating, but life-changing. Come and learn how to do history as a family. 

Jesus taught that the greatest among us would be those with a heart for service. We are living in a “me-centered” culture in which education, entertainment, advertising and peer pressure all combine to promote a life of selfishness. Marilyn has raised 8 daughters (and 6 sons) who have made service to others a priority in their day-to-day lives. Come to this workshop designed for moms and daughters as Marilyn Boyer shares with you ideas that work in designing a biblical lifestyle of service. You’ll learn how to live above self-centeredness and rise to greatness by putting others first with the added blessing of building forever memories together!

Character is the key that opens the door to successful adult living. It is the first thing wise people examine when evaluating a prospective employee, spouse, or friend. That’s why Christ-like character is the MOST important subject you will ever teach your children! Come hear Marilyn Boyer, mother of 14 home-schooled kids and learn as she shares how to intentionally teach this most important of all subjects. 

What in the world do I do with my preschoolers? Marilyn Boyer has taught all fourteen of her children at home, so she has plenty of experience with any age group you can name. But her very favorite age to teach is those eager, curious, exciting, challenging munchkins we call preschoolers. This, Marilyn says is the time when we lay the foundation for greatness by pouring love and acceptance all over them—instead of treating them like a nuisance. Preschoolers aren’t just little interruptions to be kept “occupied” while older siblings study. This season in a child’s life is the time to tap into his huge potential by maximizing his natural love for learning and helping him to see that God is preparing him for a lifetime of important service. Come and learn from Marilyn how to make your little ones a valuable part of the team!

Dr. Dan Bellamy

Inflatable Stories

Dr. Dan Bellamy is a speaker, artist, author, and master storyteller. 

After a decade in student ministry, Dan Bellamy is now touring the U.S. captivating young audiences through his unique ability to tell stories of hope using amazing balloon sculptures that point children to Jesus.  

With an earned Doctor of Ministry, Dan has served as a college minister, camp staffer, and full-time youth pastor. Now, through Inflatable Stories, his love for children’s ministry and passion for balloons converge, allowing him to share the gospel in unique and powerful ways. In his hands, balloons transform into life-size works of art reflecting the truth of Scripture in a way that captivates kids’ hearts and minds. 

Dan travels across the U.S. and the world, bringing Inflatable Stories to kids at churches, camps, and other ministry events. Through his travels, Dan has come to understand the unique ministry role he plays.” 

Dan is an experienced minister and storyteller, a master at capturing the attention of children, as well as adults. As he sees it, “The most important message in the world—the good news of Jesus Christ—won’t impact anyone if no one is paying attention. That’s why Dan uses these ‘blown-up stories’ to share life’s biggest truths. Dan carries balloon sculptures to churches because he sees God using his gift to bring the Bible to life for them. 

Dan recently completed his first children’s book, The Inflated Story of Noah, which features large-scale balloon creations photographed on location in places like Alaska, the Galapagos Islands, and Israel—a project 10 years in the making. 

No matter what crazy things a balloon artist can make, kids still love to request a dog and a sword. Join us to learn basic balloon creations. In this class we will start at the beginning with balloon inflation and knots, and then learn a variety of simple sculptures from there. These simple single-balloon sculptures are practical designs that are easy to pull out in a moment and bring a smile to someone’s face. Learners of all ages are welcome in the class, but children below 9 years old will be required to have an adult help them keep up and learn the skills. Pre-registration is required. Each person must purchase a kit for $18. A package deal for both balloon workshops is available for $29. Space is limited to 40. 

Balloons practically plead for imagination. In the intermediate balloon class, we will begin creatively connecting multiple balloons into designs. We will assume everyone has either learned to inflate and tie balloons in the beginner class or has someone ready to help them with those starter steps. Learners of all ages are welcome in the class, but children below 9 years old will be required to have an adult help them keep up and learn the skills. Pre-registration is required per person.

Please bring your kit if you attended Workshop 1. If you did not attend Workshop 1, then you’ll need to buy both a kit and additional balloons for $25. A package deal for both balloon workshops is available for $29.  Space is limited to 40. 

We all face giants, but when we face them do we cower in fear or confidently stand before them in the name of our Lord. During our family night program, we will explore the story of David and Goliath with enormous balloon sculptures that bring the tale to life and make us part of the epic moment when David faced a Philistine that terrified his fellow Israelites. 

Workshop Speakers

Mike Snavely

Mike Snavely, the son of missionaries, was reared in South Africa. He & his wife, Carrie, were also missionaries there and home educated their 3 children.  

In 1995 he founded Mission Imperative – a creation-oriented ministry. Mike authored “Creation or Evolution” (a curriculum, which won 1st place in the 2021 Practical Homeschooling Readers’ Choice Awards) & has produced many videos, including the popular “Adventures of Ranger Mike” video series for kids. His prime ministry is speaking, and he has produced many seminars related to biblical origins.  

He is also an inductee into the “Creation Science Hall of Fame”, and has appeared many times on “Creation in the 21st Century” (a TBN program). He has spoken across the USA and in nine foreign countries.  

They also host 2 fascinating excursions. The “Southwest Safari” is a 10-day, flood-oriented trip to the UT/AZ region, while the “African Wildlife Safari” is a 17-day, creation-oriented tour to South Africa. 

In this session we define “science”, and illustrate the scientific method of problem solving. In the light of true science, the three main concepts that the theory of evolution is based upon are examined and shown to be faith-based rather than science-based. The purpose of this session is not only to show that science does not support evolutionary theory, but also to give Christians some “tools” with which to combat the theory.

This is one of the most breathtaking and perplexing sites in the world. Standard geological explanations for its formation are wrong, and most creationists have overlooked some major pieces of the puzzle. Amazingly, what carved the canyon also explains most of the fascinating geological features in the entire area (e.g. Monument Valley, The Petrified Forest, Canyonlands & Arches, Canyon de Chelley, etc.). Furthermore, they all formed very quickly! What happened?!

What evidence is there that humans evolved from ape-like creatures? As it turns out, not much! In fact, the “evidence” is stunningly sparse, being limited to a few fossilized bones. However, many of these are either fakes, or greatly misinterpreted and exaggerated. This session uses humor as it exposes much of this. To conclude, we show mathematically and geographically why the apes-to-man scenario is quite impossible!

Using puppets and other visual illustrations, this session shows how life only displays design, order, and beauty – not lucky accident and chance. We cover three aspects of the natural world the evolutionist cannot explain – including amazing design, incredible instinct, and the general relative sizes of creatures compared to each other. This is a fun session designed for all ages.

With fascinating illustrations, this session contrasts the evolution model with the creation model from a historic standpoint through a look at what many ancient cultures were able to accomplish. These accomplishments baffle us even today! How did ancient man do these things? This session contrasts some of these civilizations to our own and has a personal application.

Victoria Schurter


Victoria Schurter is a first-generation homeschool graduate, college graduate, and graduate student. As the oldest of six in an internationally adoptive, military, and law enforcement family, she brings a unique perspective on strength and family ties amidst stress, separation, crazy schedules, and hardships such as cancer. Victoria is passionate about equipping young adults to recognize their potential, to form a biblical sense of identity, and to know God and make Him known in daily life. She offers several sessions on parent-child communication, surrender, identity, and navigating post-high school life. Victoria directs Unbound’s Learning Division and has a deep and abiding love of all things creative. When she’s not working on an Unbound project, you can find her scribbling on a novel, playing a favorite instrument, riding horses, watching a sunset, or dreaming up some new adventure that absolutely includes the Pacific coastline. One of the best parts of her world is walking alongside other young adults as they make an eternal impact in their generation. 

Every parent wants their young adult to become, well, just that – an adult. And in the midst of a generation steeped in extended adolescence, we earnestly hope our young people grow into brave, joyful, self-directed, hard-working, and healthy young adults with great relationships and a great vision for the future. But in an age where those both over and under 18 struggle with purpose, direction, relationships, responsibility, and unique if not unprecedented challenges, “adulting” has become more of a byword for something young people really don’t want to embrace. 
This two-part series suggests a different approach to the adventure of adulthood – one that opens the door to a life of impact, purpose, and thriving. Part I explains why the ability to ask good questions in a culture of assumptions is so powerful, why action is such a powerful catalyst for young people, and why understanding what we were designed for is foundational to everything else we do.

This two-part series suggests a different approach to the adventure of adulthood – one that opens the door to a life of impact, purpose, and thriving. Part II digs deeply into the idea that, while we might study the theoretical as children and adolescents, the whole point is to prepare us for living in the real world. This series concludes with the challenge that even though young adults today face a generation with unprecedented levels of darkness, despair, and hopelessness, there are few more powerful testimonies than a life that demonstrates what it looks like to truly thrive – and offers that same light and hope to others.  

Almost every high school and college graduate has fielded the question, “So what’s next?” But what happens when we’re not sure? When we don’t know which direction to go, where we want to end up, what job we want, or how to even start? With perspective from someone who has walked that very road and helped others to navigate it also, this session explores how to help your young adult get unstuck and start gaining momentum — and have an amazing adventure along the way. Victoria talks about what to do in the absence of a clear direction and how to conquer inertia and anxiety, maximize effectiveness, and lay the foundation for a meaningful, purposeful life. 

What do we do when life looks drastically different than we ever asked for — or perhaps ever wanted? Most people know the story of how Esther became queen and helped save a nation. But the lessons we can learn from her obedience, faithfulness, and courage in a life-shattering situation run so much deeper than a crown. This session looks at practical responses, daily choices, and deeper perspectives that help us see God’s bigger story in all of life’s twists and turns. 

Amidst the rapid popularity rise of personality typing, the differences between individuals have been cause for both conflict and celebration – and this holds true in families as well. Pulling from over twenty years of experience in varied family relationships, this session looks at parent-child and sibling dynamics, how to gracefully navigate the differences between very different personalities, and what true understanding looks like in a family setting. 

Dan Kreft

The Seven-Foot Apologist

Dan Kreft, the Seven-Foot Apologist, is a cross-generational teacher, itinerant speaker, and author of the three-volume book, “Jesus” Is Not the Answer to Every Sunday School Question. In addition to his own ministry, he also serves as an adjunct instructor for Creation Training Initiative and serves on the board of directors for the Apologetics Forum of Snohomish County. Dan has been building websites vocationally since 1995, but his passion is to equip and encourage the body of Christ to confidently deliver biblical responses to skeptical assaults on our faith, with a particular emphasis on the sufficiency and authority of Scripture, starting with the very first verse. 


Why should anyone believe the Bible? If you think you’re about to hear about a bunch of evidences or arguments for the truth of Scripture, you’re in for quite a surprise….because it’s not about evidences, and it’s not about arguments. Basically, it’s not about you at all. 

Does studying long lists of funny-sounding names so enrapture you that you find yourself studying them deep into the night, or do you keep them on hand as a homeopathic cure for insomnia? 

In this humor-filled presentation, I do the unthinkable–I make “the begats” fun. Learn what the purpose is for each of the five major genealogies in the Bible, and find out if we really can use them to estimate the age of the earth; the answer may surprise you. 

By the end of this presentation, the audience will be able to deliver correct responses to the following challenges: 

  1. State what is meant by “hermeneutics”, 
  1. List three biblical proofs that the days of creation were actual days (~24 hours long), and 
  1. Explain why 24-hour days in Genesis 1 are essential for understanding the gospel. 

When I first got started in apologetics, I thought it was basically about two things: a) proving God exists, and b) providing evidence to prove the truth claims of the Bible. It seemed what every big-name apologist had done before me, and it seemed to be an entirely reasonable, rational, and sensible approach…so for years, that’s the path I followed. I never stopped to ask myself, “But is it biblical?” 

In this presentation, using as many of God’s words and as few of mine as possible, I pass on what God taught me from His Word about what apologetics really is, and how He showed me, “Dan, apologetics is not what you think.” 

Is it possible to disagree with someone on social media without the conversation devolving into a digital fistfight, replete with name-calling and an exchange of mocking memes to make one’s point? In this presentation, I demonstrate, using a real conversation I had on social media, how to leverage Greg Koukl’s Tactics to effectively guide conversations and ask intelligent questions that will cause those who read them to think about why they believe what they believe. 

Chris Rogers

Chris Rogers lived in Fairfield, CA for the first 18 years of his life (educated at home from fourth through twelfth grade), and then moved to Port Orchard, WA in 1994, where he now lives with his wife, Ruth, and five children. He taught private, classical piano for 24 years, recorded and gave concerts, and has served as a pastor for the past 10 years. He now serves full-time as the lead pastor at Discovery Baptist in Gig Harbor, WA. He and Ruth are passionate about the Kingdom of God, thoroughly enjoy “family life,” and love PNW outdoor adventures. 

There are few journeys in life quite like marriage! So what is God’s “roadmap” for young men who look forward to (or are already on the path of) this divine calling? We’ll take a spiritual look at the practical application of Ephesians 5. As we apply “four truths to four levels,” you’ll find both the directions and the destination of marital bliss coming into clearer focus. 

24 years of private piano teaching (nearly 30,000 lessons) will teach a person a thing or two—some lessons learned the hard way, some the easy. The goal of this short workshop is to help point you to “hard work the easy way.” But even the best music business is not truly successful unless it’s based on the Kingdom. We’ll start this class with the importance of clarifying your philosophy of ministry, and then we’ll dive deep into the practical how-to’s of forming a private teaching studio. Many principles will cross over into other types of home-based businesses. 

Susan Bradrick

Christian Heritage PQC

Michael & Susan Bradrick, of Montesano, WA, are the blessed parents of nine children, ages 35-53, and the grandparents of 52—all home-educated. The Bradrick homeschooling adventure began in 1981, and since then they have spoken at many homeschool gatherings and conferences nationwide. They co-founded Christian Heritage Home Educators of Washington in 2005, and since 2015 Susan has served as director of the Christian Homeschool Network which works with the legislature and others to protect our excellent Washington State home education law and to support other pro-family issues. She also authored the Christ-centered multi-level English and composition curriculum Understanding Writing 

Consider this dilemma: You have an adequate fixed income, but you find your bank account emptied by non-essentials before the bills are paid. The same occurs with the daily 24 hours God gives us. Too often the non-essentials squeeze out the essentials, and we fail to carry out God’s crucial assignments for us. And as this all too easily happens with homeschooling parents, come discover important ways to avoid this serious pitfall.  

Steve McCully


Steve McCully is a retired public school teacher who taught and coached for 42 years here in Washington state. He loves kids and wants to do whatever he can to encourage parents as they teach their kids. Steve spent the first ten years of his life living in Ecuador where his parents were missionaries and his dad was one of five men killed by the people group they were trying to bring the “Good News” to. He loves sharing stories of God’s Faithfulness demonstrated to him and his family over the entire course of his life. 

In January of 1956 Ed McCully was one of five missionaries killed in the jungles of Ecuador by a group of people they were trying to reach with the Gospel. We will see how “God’s ways are above our ways” and how He wants to use each of us and all of the details of our circumstances for good. We will have time for questions and answers at the end and a collection of documents related to the story available for folks who want to know more about it. 

Whether or not you are “addicted” to anything, we all have things in life we want to change, or “fix”. We live in a broken world, yes? In this workshop we will talk about how the Bible has the answer to whatever or wherever our “brokenness” is as Steve explains how he let his love of numbers lead him into gambling which became “compulsive” and after seventeen years almost ended his marriage until twenty-seven years ago the truth and understanding and guidance and love found in God’s Word changed his life, one day at a time. 

Do you want to make working with numbers not only non-threatening, but actually enjoyable.

Chris Dortignac


Chris has served as a church pianist, ensemble and quartet singer, and arranged and composed church music for over 30 years, as well as accompanying large crowds, and playing at over 30 weddings.  Seeing the need for better instruction in the area of music, he began teaching, produced the Powerful Praise Music Conference in the Spokane, WA area, wrote an instruction manual for church pianists titled, “Hymnprovisation, the Art of Effective Accompaniment”, and has taught numerous music classes from Oregon, Washington, Idaho, to Belize, Central America. Currently, he serves as the Director of Music at Grace Bible Church, in Coeur d’ Alene, ID, with his beautiful wife, Becca Lee, son Matthew, and is eagerly awaiting the birth of his second child. 


Most students dread music theory classes. In this class, we will explain why theory is critical, how to understand three basics of music theory in a memorable way, and, most importantly, how to apply it to make you a better musician. Learn to properly identify and use the three components of every single song and how to apply them to create your own arrangements and songs. The attendee will learn the proper balance of melody, harmony, and rhythm, as well as how to identify and utilize:  Scales, Intervals,  Chords, and Circle of Fifths.  

Students should be at least late beginner/early intermediate.  There will be lots of useful applications for even most advanced students as well.  A piano keyboard, or whatever instrument the student is comfortable with, would be very helpful for this class.  Some of the principles will apply to all instrumentalists, but it will be primarily demonstrated on the piano. It will be geared toward pianists, but this class will teach valuable techniques for all musicians.

Pre-register since the class size is 20 students. 

Five tricks of the trade that professionals use when sight-reading music. Many musicians never learn to sing, but whether you sing or play an instrument, or both, you will become a better musician by learning to apply these five techniques, which are: 1. Learn to aurally identify intervals!; 2. Look over entire music and identify key, timing, speed, mode, accidentals, etc.; 3. ID melody; 4. ID rhythm; and 5. ID Harmony. 

Suitable for beginners, but probably not any younger than 10 years of age. No instruments are needed for this workshop. Pre-registration is required since class size is 25 students.
