HARDIN -- Area parents of athletes of all ages will have a unique opportunity to hear from David E. Prince, author of 'In the Arena: The Promise of Sports for Christian Discipleship.'

In a society where sports is not just an opportunity, it is a lifestyle, Prince offers an approach to parenting that addresses the influence this has on children, parents, families and society. His book addresses critical reflection on the relationship between the in-born desire to compete and growing that effectually in an athlete within a Christian perspective.

Prince is pastor of preaching and vision at Ashland Avenue Baptist Church in Lexington, Kentucky and assistant professor of Christian preaching at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Saturday, November 16, Prince will be speaking at Hardin Baptist Church targeting parents of athletes. This event will be an all-day conference, 8:30 a.m.- 4:30 p.m., with lunch provided.

Registration begins October 20. For more information, contact Nick Calhoon at nick@hardinbaptist.org.
