Arrows and Arks derives it name for two passages of Scripture:

            “Sons [and daughters] are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from Him. Like arrows in         the hands of a warrior are sons [and daughters] born in one’s youth.”

Psalm 127:3-4

            “By faith Noah, when warned about things not seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family.”

Hebrews 11:7

The title, Arrows and Arks, addresses the two goals of the Christian parent – to launch our children to be useful instruments in the hand of God and to preserve them from drowning in our fallen culture. The program is designed to put into the hands of parents a plan and the tools to fulfill their God-given responsibility – to disciple their children. Studies have shown that Christian parents struggle greatly with this task for two reasons: They feel inadequate and they believe they do not have the time. Arrows and Arks takes on both challenges and provides a pathway for parents to give to their children that which is most necessary to launch and preserve them in the faith.
