Parent Commissioning

An important milestone for families and a day of celebration as a church!

Parent Commissioning

Parent Commissioning is all about partnering with you as parents, celebrating what God is doing in your family, and connecting you with the support and resources you need on this journey. 


We use the term "Parent Commissioning" to reflect the church's recognition and support of the essential work that parents are called to do according to Scripture. This time of "commissioning" acknowledges publicly to the church (and others) that parents are choosing to commit themselves to raising their children in a way that reflects what Scripture teaches about family and faith. 


Our Parent Commissioning celebration is included in a weekend worship experience in the main auditorium during one of our regular service times.

There are 2 steps in this milestone for your family:

The first step is Parent Commissioning Orientation. This orientation allows us discuss God’s design for parenting and how Upward plans to support you and partner with you in discipling your children.


The second step is our Parent Commissioning Celebration in which we come together to celebrate your family’s desire to raise your child in a God-centered home! On the day of this celebration we will bring you and your children before the church to recognize your commitment and pray for you as a church family.


Our next Parent Commissioning celebration will be on the weekend of Thursday, March 24th and Sunday, September March 27th 2022. Sign-up by clicking the button below.
