Milestone 5: Stepping Into Adulthood

January 2, 2028

Do you feel like our culture is trying to redefine expectations regarding adulthood? Biblically, parents are called to equip their children to become men and women of God. Families will learn how God has uniquely designed men and women, and how we live out those roles. Our desire is to help our sons and daughters to embrace growing up into manhood or womanhood with a biblical mindset.

  • Key Concepts: Biblical roles of men and women, spiritual gifts, spiritual disciplines, service in the church and dealing with failure
  • Focus: 9th – 10th grade students
  • Milestone Celebration: Passage to Manhood/Womanhood

Parent Training

As primary disciple-makers we all need a little help learning how to pass on our faith and navigating our culture with a biblical worldview. That is why we host Stepping Into Adulthood Parenting Workshops each January. We discuss how God has uniquely designed men and women, how we live out those roles, and how to translate it to our sons and daughters to embrace growing up into manhood or womanhood with a biblical mindset. Plus, you will learn about ways to celebrate this milestone as you participate with the community of parents that are on the same path as you.

How do we celebrate Stepping Into Adulthood Milestone at Carmel?

Rite of Passage ceremonies are deeply personal and different for every family. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach. Therefore, we walk alongside families to develop a unique celebration for their student at time and place that works best for the family. The key is to celebrate this Milestone in a special way will help make it memorable. This celebration can include a weekend trip, a meal at their favorite restaurant, doing a creative project, a community gathering in the home, the list could go on and on. When you are ready to walk your 10th-12th grade student through a Rite of Passage celebration let us know by filling out the form below so that we can pray for and support you through this milestone.
