Rev. Leo and Rebekah Colόn and their two children, Zane and Marsaylah live in Mobile, Alabama. As a family, they attend and faithfully serve at Praise Family Church. Growing up with fathers for pastors, Leo and Rebekah have been involved in church ministry their entire lives. For 2 years they served as Assistant Directors in a program called Master’s Commission and 13 years as student pastors. During this time in ministry it has shown them the true need to partner with parents and help equip them to raise the future generations to be Christ followers. They truly desire for all parents to grasp and believe that their children are a reward as Psalm 127:3 says.
What we do
Parents Initiative was birthed out of a desire to see parents become and be who God has called them to be. To raise sons and daughters in the manner that God instituted and instructed in His Word.
Its sole purpose is to help equip and train parents with a simple message that will encourage them to take the initiative in their homes. This message is presented in a seminar format of 1 to 2 hours. Each seminar can be adjusted to fit churches, businesses, daycares, schools, and other organizations.
Notes that include resource ideas for additional help will be provided for all seminar attendees. After parents return home, they’ll be able to reference their notes and the references to help keep things in perspective and serve as a simple reminder of the daily commitment it takes to be an effective parent.
Psalms 127:3 says that children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from Him. It’s the responsibility of parents to be good stewards of the children that God has blessed them with and we want to bring more awareness through the Parents Initiative.
