Parents of septuplets to speak at Sunday School luncheon

Fri, 16 Feb 2007 - 2:08 PM CST

"Train Up a Child," is this year's theme for the General Council Christian Education and Sunday School Luncheon. Highlighting the theme will be special guest speakers Kenneth and Bobbi McCaughey, parents of the first surviving healthy septuplets in recorded history.

With eight children (septuplets plus an older sibling), the McCaugheys (pronounced "McCoys") have learned to rely on God to meet their family's needs, and when asked about their challenges, the McCaugheys are quick to give God credit for their success.

"Their testimony as Christian believers is such an amazing and strong story," says Wes Bartel, director of the Assemblies of God national Sunday School Department. Bartel recalls seeing the media coverage after the septuplets birth and being amazed by the way the McCaugheys testified of God's grace, committing to raise their children in such a way that would glorify God.

The McCaugheys have been living in the media spotlight since the birth of their septuplets in November 1997. This extraordinary event has allowed the McCaugheys to publicly attest to God's faithfulness, making headlines in media such as "Newsweek," "LIFE Magazine" and "CNN.com" and appearances on "Dateline NBC," and "Oprah."

Together the McCaugheys have written a book entitled "Seven from Heaven," which appeared on the New York Times Bestseller list, and Bobbi has also written a second book, "Celebrating the Wonders of Motherhood."

This year's Christian Education and Sunday School Luncheon will also honor the 2007 National Sunday School Teacher of the Year Carol McKernan from Evangel Assembly in Evart, Michigan.

The luncheon will be held in the Wabash Ballroom of the Indiana Convention Center on Thursday, August 9, from 12-1:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 and are available on the General Council order form.
