The BC Christian Home Education Convention is one of the largest home education conferences in western Canada. We believe that parents have a God given responsibility in the education of their children. Our desire is to support Christ-centered home education by providing this event which brings together homeschooling families with resource-providers, speakers, and supportive networking options for two days of inspiration, encouragement and challenge.
This year, our theme is ROOTED IN CHRIST.
Let your roots grow down into him and draw up nourishment from him. See that you go on growing in the Lord, and become strong and vigorous in the truth you were taught. Let your lives overflow with joy and thanksgiving for all he has done. Col. 2:7 Living Bible
Through the lineup of dynamic speakers, dozens of practical workshops, two packed vendor halls, and the opportunity for one-on-one encouragement, you will be equipped to fulfill your greatest calling in life: making disciples of Jesus Christ – one child at a time.
Bonnie Landry is an ordinary mom, living in the little hamlet of Cobble Hill on Vancouver Island, British Columbia with her family. She and her husband Albert, have raised and homeschooled seven children who range in age from 12-31. None of her children ever attended school. The four adult children have all pursued post-secondary studies. Three are now married, and the avalanche of grandbabies has begun!
Twenty seven years homeschooling her kids has taught her how vital is it to get along with them. Actually, life is kind of a bust if you can’t get along with people.
The Landry’s mission is joy. Living simply, discipline with dignity, fostering community and encouraging others are all central to their lives. In their home, beautiful literature and discussion is foundational to education. Bonnie’s methods are without clutter and centre on the relationships in the home.
