Upcoming Protecting Your Family and Ministry in the Internet Age June 2017

Living in the modern hi-tech world, we do our best to keep up with technical developments and use the numerous technological and virtual solutions that it offers. Although there are evident benefits, we find ourselves exposed to a variety of harmful things such as pornography, that can ruin our lives, our children’s lives, our marriages, our families and our ministries. This course is designed for those of you who wish to secure your family’s and your staff’s devices, and at the same time not damaging openness but rather building a trust-based relationship.
