PARENTEEN: Serving the developmental and systemic needs of the young


For a wide variety of groups and reasons primarily serving the young, ranging from schools and districts to colleges and seminaries to churches, Chap brings his extensive experience and broad expertise to guide organizations and initiatives toward systemic clarity and effectiveness. Contact Chap below for more details on his consulting work.


The HURT Community seminars are designed to help anyone who works with or in the service of adolescents to understand who they are and how they think. They are based on the latest research on adolescent development, family and social systems, and the rapidly-changing environment that every student faces. Chap’s teaching is based on understanding and respect for all ‘sides’ involved in nurturing, teaching and loving this generation and of course, the same love and respect for the generation itself.

Community “Town Hall” Seminar
This seminar is specifically targeted at a broad range of adults and organizations – educators, social workers and government officials, counselors and therapists, youth workers and parents – to provide them with the training they need to understand the contemporary adolescent experience.

Church-Based “Understanding Today’s Teen” Seminar
This seminar provides churches training and tools they need to understand the adolescent experience and help them to more fully assimilate and integrate their students into the full life of the church family.

ParenTeen™ Seminars equip parents to both understand and nurture their children in a constantly changing cultural environment. They are guaranteed to help parents gain insight into their child’s journey, and to develop a more authentic and effective parenting strategy throughout the teen years and beyond.

ParenTeen is designed to offer the insights from the latest research as well as help prepare parents of any religious or ideological viewpoint what teenagers need in our highly fragmented cultural climate. The seminar is presented for all adults who care for kids, and will not present any material that is religiously insensitive to those who do not come from a Christian perspective.

The Church-Based seminar is specifically focused on what it means to see parenting as stewardship from God. The focus will be on how God is calling parents to respond to their children in a highly secular and fragmented culture, what biblical discipleship looks like during the teen years, and how parents who have an authentic faith have the best chance of leading their children into a lifetime of commitment to God and his kingdom work.
