Pastor Chad Jacobson of City Church, a non-denominational Christian church in Sandy and Taylorsville, Utah, discussed how parents can leave a legacy of faith for their posterity at the World Congress of Families IX on Thursday.

“(Leaving a legacy of faith) means we take the time to train our children and our grandchildren,” Jacobson said. “We talk about faith, we pray about faith, we may believe that we have faith. But we don’t take the time to train our children in faith.”

Jacobson said adolescents tend to feel the most loved when shown attention from those closest to them.

“Attention is the key to leaving a legacy of faith. It doesn’t mean that we look the other way when there needs to be correction. It means that we spend the time to create the foundation.”

Jacobson emphasized the importance of calm, quick and spared discipline in effective parenting. He concluded by sharing the hope that his legacy of faith will be built upon by his children and future posterity yet to come.
