Conferences: Father/Child

Father/Son (Grades K-6)

Our heart's desire for the Father/Son conference is to provide an opportunity for young men to spend quality time with their dads in a Christ-centered environment. During this weekend they worship together, play games together, and have plenty of free time to bond away from the busyness of life back home. Every part of the weekend is intentional with the hopes of giving fathers a chance to be an example to their sons, with words and actions, of what a godly man looks like. These conferences go much further than three days because as relationships are deepened here, the family back home will hopefully grow closer to each other and to the Lord.

About Darin Kinder

On September 11, 2001, our nation was attacked and the “war on terror” began. Darin Kinder was in the World Trade Center on that tragic day. Without a doubt, the Lord saved Darin on 9/11. As a result of his experience, a different kind of war began in his soul. A war of purpose lost. Over the next 10 years, Darin would struggle mightily with his experience on 9/11 and even more so with God’s calling on his life. He knew God saved him that terrible day. But why? Darin begged the Lord for his “marching orders”, but for years only heard silence in return.

After years of prayer, study, and revelation from the Lord, Darin is finally fulfilling his God given mission, one small step at a time. His mission? To boldly speak about the love of Christ and His saving grace. To inspire and equip men to live godly lives of Integrity, Courage, and Compassion. From the darkness of 9/11, Darin proclaims the light of Christ in creating The Valiant, a unit of godly men harnessing the power of the Holy Spirit to transform their lives and the lives of those in their care (wives, children, friends, etc).

Darin Kinder is a former high school history teacher and is currently a Special Agent with the United States Secret Service. For his actions on 9/11, Darin was awarded the Secret Service Medal of Valor. Darin lives with his wife and four sons in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
