The Student Ministry will be bringing in Dr. Jessica Peck, a pediatric clinician and anti-trafficking advocate, who has experience in counseling parents with numerous issues our students face today. Dr. Peck will be speaking on the prevalence of students using social media in today’s society from a young age and the effects it can have on them psychologically and socially, as well as showing you backdoor apps our students are using to try and hide conversations or profiles they may have.
