- See Stephen’s session Saturday, March 27 at 8:30 a.m.: What’s the Point of Popular Culture and Why Should Christian Parents Care?
For Christian parents, all these movies, shows, games, music, and beyond can feel overwhelming! Is there any point to all this popular culture? Why does it exist in God’s world in the first place? In this course, E. Stephen Burnett, coauthor of The Pop Culture Parent: Helping Kids Engage Their World for Christ (with Ted Turnau and Jared Moore) uses gospel perspective to discern the biblical purpose of popular culture: from God’s creation, to humanity’s fall, to our redemption for Christ’s glory.
- See Jared’s session Saturday, March 27 at 2:30 p.m.: Five Simple Questions for Parents to Engage Popular Culture
Even if Christian parents get the point of popular culture, how do we apply this truth in our families? How can we find the graces and idols in the stories and songs our kids love? Dr. Jared Moore, coauthor of The Pop Culture Parent (with Ted Turnau and E. Stephen Burnett) offers five simple questions to help us engage in this vital mission. With one or two examples from popular movies, we will explore this method as a starting point for conversations to help you discern your children’s hearts and direct them to worship our fantastic Savior.
Also, for the first time since the 2020 pandemic, you can browse previous Lorehaven print magazine issues and other resources.

About The Pop Culture Parent
Parents often feel at a loss with popular culture and how it fits in with their families. They want to love their children well, but it can be overwhelming to navigate the murky waters of television, movies, games, and more that their kids are exposed to every day. Popular culture doesn’t have to be a burden. The Pop Culture Parent equips mothers, fathers, and guardians to build relationships with their children by entering into their popular culture–informed worlds, understanding them biblically, and passing on wisdom. This resource by authors Jared Moore, E. Stephen Burnett, and Ted Turnau provides Scripture-based, practical help for parents to enjoy the messy gift of popular culture with their kids.
