February 2015 Newsletter


Dear Friends,

It is hard to believe that ENOCH's 25th Annual Homeschool Convention is only two and half months away! For 25 years, ENCOH has been offering a convention to the homeschoolers of New Jersey. My wife and I have been either attending or working at 17 of that convention!

We are very excited about this year's convention! Our theme is "Standing Firm in Your Homeschool". We have some great speakers: Vicki Bentley from HSLDA, Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller from National Center of Biblical Parenting and Jonathan Brush from College Plus. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller have been one of the convention's favorite speakers and they are locals from New Jersey.

Early-Bird Pre-Registration opens February 1st and prices are the same as last year! Again, we have JandY Ministry for our Children's Program. Their mission in life is to glorify God, to teach God's truths and to equip others to do the same! They have so much to offer your children with balloons, games, video, experiments, dinosaurs, face painting, etc. You can learn all about them at www.jandyministry.com. The pricing is the same as last year, as well. There will be two sessions on Friday and four sessions on Saturday. Sign-up your children when you register, either for the Friday sessions, Saturday sessions or both days. Be sure to sign-up early. Last year Saturday's sessions sold out!

If you know of someone who is thinking about homeschooling, invite them to come to the convention. There is special pricing for parents of preschoolers and for those who are new to homeschooling and have never been to our convention.

We are excited that we will be holding a Silent Auction again during the convention. If know a business or you own a business yourself and would like to get your name out to the homeschool community, consider donating an item to be bid on during the convention. You can e-mail the Silent Auction Coordinator at (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). Speaking of getting the name of your business out to the homeschooling community, why not consider placing an ad in the Convention Program or sponsor a portion of the convention. You can contact the Convention Coordinator at (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Check our website for exhibitors who have registered. If you don't see, your favorite vendors contact them and ask them to register for the convention.

Please continue to pray for ENOCH and planning of the convention. Also, pray for our vendors attending the convention. We ask the Lord to make their time prosperous at our convention. Be sure to register for the convention. Early Bird pricing ends March 31, 2015!

We still have open vacancies related to the convention and need any help you can give. If you can work before, during or after the convention, please let us know.

Thank you!

In His Service,
Richard Millward
