Vision Forum is a an evangelical, Christian organization that was founded by Doug Phillips, a noted evangelical, conservative Christian. The group is holding a Father-Daughter Retreat that you might want to consider if your daughter is showing signs of rebellion, independence, self-awareness or any other worrisome behavior.

Vision Forum has an interest in father-daughter relationships as they promote a belief system called “The Tenets of Biblical Patriarchy“. These include the following: God is masculine, there are strict gender roles for men and women, the father is the head of the household, and the woman is created as a helper to her husband and bearer of children. They also that “it is not the ordinary and fitting role of women to work alongside men as their functional equals in public spheres of dominion.” The same article also says
