Being a parent is one of the most important jobs you can have, but raising kids is arguably more difficult than ever.
Despite the many outside influences in today’s world, you, as a parent, still have the biggest impact on your children’s lives. But how exactly can we train up future generations in the way they should go (Proverbs 22:6)?
The Uncommon Parenting Conference will be hosted at Watermark Community Church on November 10 – 11, 2023. This conference is designed to help parents feel more confident as we raise children in an ever-changing culture according to God’s unchanging truth.
Biblical guidance for raising and caring for our children, regardless of age.
Breakout sessions that address some of the most difficult parenting topics.
Opportunities to laugh, have fun, and connect with other parents.
We know that each child and family is unique, so we’re offering a variety of breakout sessions to address a variety of needs and family dynamics. Here is a sneak peek of the breakout topics we’re offering, but stay tuned for more:

This conference was created to equip parents with kids of all ages and in many different family situations to disciple the children in their lives. Our mainstage teaching will give parents God’s vision for the biblical role of family. However, we will host several breakouts to give practical teaching for various family situations and parenting stages such expecting parents, foster parents, blended families, empty-nesters, grandparents, and more! Stay tuned as more breakout topics are released in the coming weeks. Even if your kids are now adults, we're hosting breakouts like Rite of Passage Training and Preparing to Launch Well. It's a great opportunity to get equipped to care for your family in every stage.
The registration price includes conference entry, a light breakfast and lunch on Saturday, excellent teaching from speakers and special guests, a few surprises, and some truly fantastic snacks (trust us about the snacks… we’re very serious about snacks here at Watermark 😊 ).
Our facilities are not capable of hosting children for the length of time needed for the conference and our desire is that parents would be able to attend the conference distraction-free. We are asking that no children above the age of 6 months attend the conference – including sessions in the Auditorium or breakout rooms. There will be pumping rooms available for nursing mothers.
If you are looking for childcare, we would recommend you start with family or ask your community for trusted names.
We’re lining up fantastic speakers for you. Uncommon Parenting Conference will feature familiar Watermark faces and several special guests who are experts in their fields.

We’ve got answers! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’d love to help.
We do not have any reserved room blocks but there are a variety of hotels within walking distance.
There will not be a virtual option. Uncommon is more than conference sessions and breakouts – it’s also an experience that’s designed to connect and refresh parents. We believe that’s best facilitated in person. However, conference content will be posted on our website after the event.
