The Media Monster: Protecting and Preparing Kids for the Dangers Behind the Screen – In this workshop you’ll learn not only the best tools for filtering the content your kids can access, you’ll also learn how to install that all-important “internal filter” in your child’s brain so they can begin regulating media on their own.

“Luke Gilkerson is a man of rare insight who is able to convey powerful messages to his audience. His speaking is full of knowledge and enthusiasm and his ability to connect with a variety of age groups and personalities is truly a gift from God.” – Tabitha Kruger, student (Omaha, NE)
“I have heard Luke speak on numerous occasions, and each time he provides relevant historical and contextual detail that helps his listener understand the relevance of God’s Word, both then and now.” – Andrew Veit, legislative aide (Columbus, OH)
“My husband and I agree that it is the life that Luke lives that empowers his speaking. As our campus minister, his formal and informal teaching times were filled by his quiet time with the Lord.
