Homeschool Conventions and COVID-19
Print E-mail
Due to the accelerated issues and health concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we are implementing the following changes related to physical meetings. Please know that these decisions are the direct result of much prayer and lost sleep by our entire management team, and you as well. There are no easy or best decisions in times like this, but there is faith in God to direct us and I believe He is doing just that.

Effective immediately:
  1. All March and April physical meetings will be canceled. With the current spread of the virus and the predicted impacts it is not wise to keep these open any longer. We will be evaluating events scheduled in later months in the near future.
  2. Our April Online Party held on Facebook will now offer the same discounts that our physical conventions normally do.
    • We are working on putting together some weekly sessions in the party’s group leading up to the event’s start date to help answer questions ahead of time. Please join the party today to get started.
  3. In lieu of having physical events all regular HomeWorks Event discounts will be given over the phone during March and April with any HomeWorks Consultant. Those discounts may be found here. In many cases these discounts are the same or very similar to convention discounts. Talk to a HomeWorks Consultant today to discuss your options, they are happy to help. You may use our map to locate a consultant in your area, but any consultant from any locality may help you.
  4. All existing marketing content will take several days to update. The information presented here supersedes any existing ads, website pages, or other marketing materials.
  5. If you are unfamiliar with HomeWorks by Precept and our partnership with BJU Press Homeschool please visit the following page.
  6. All temporary changes listed above are strictly due to the health and safety concerns of the COVID-19 virus and we will revert to normal procedures when it is deemed appropriate.
  7. Please like our Facebook pages: BJU Press, HomeWorks by Precept and our Facebook group. We will be looking at ways to increase our Facebook Lives to provide more possibilities of interaction with you digitally during this time.

Henry Ford once said, “Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success.” The homeschool movement began with a group of determined families that boldly decided to follow passages like Deuteronomy 6:7 and take the education of their children into their own hands. Those families fought legal difficulties and public scrutiny, but their numbers began to multiply and they created state organizations and localized support groups. The state groups became legal advocates that, state by state, worked through many tough battles to legalize homeschooling nationwide! Today the homeschool movement flourishes because a few people followed biblical truths and the pattern that Henry Ford identified many years ago.

Our genesis as a movement stems from God’s blessings, coupled with sheer determination and willpower of a few to get things done! One of God’s first observations of His creation was that people are never meant to be alone, which I discuss in a previous blog post. “Togetherness” is what has made the homeschool movement so successful over the years and it is what will bring us through any hardships caused by the COVID-19 virus!

Just like the success of the early homeschool movement came from collaborated teamwork, equipping the next generation for Christ by means of homeschooling will also require teamwork. The success of your child’s education ultimately falls on you and your child, but you have a team of friends, family, church, state organizations, and publishers that are all here to support you. Our goal amidst all of the COVID-19 implications is simple, to be a help in your child’s education in any way that we can. And remember, none of us saw the events of the last several weeks coming - none except God, and God is bigger than this virus, and God is bigger than all of the worry and anxiety that it has created! May God bless you with strength, wisdom, and protection as you seek Christ and school your children.
