Current Parenting Topics by Joey & Carla Link


“Helpful, informative, fun, challenging, exciting, refreshing, loved it” are just a few of the comments made by parents following the presentation from Joey & Carla Link that took place at Calvary Church.

 The Link’s ministry to our parents was exactly what I was hoping for when we invited them.  Their teaching most importantly was Biblical and challenging.  The principles they shared were practical and applicable.  Their illustrations were enlightening and enjoyable.  They took time to answer questions from individual parents conveying genuine care and concern for them.

 Our parents benefited greatly from the Link’s teaching and ministry.  We hope to have the Link’s back as we continue to provide ongoing ministry for our parents at Calvary Church.
