Joshua White

Topic: A Thinking Generation

Author, speaker, and child development researcher, Joshua White is the director of A Thinking Generation Ministries. Through his extensive research in early child development and education, Joshua has discovered that the education of our young people for God’s Kingdom, and the raising up of a generation to finish the work, must begin in the child’s earliest years. 

In his seminars, Joshua uses the latest brain science and education research to pull back the veil on Satan’s attacks on our children, and to clearly reveal God’s methods of training and educating children.
