Children's Ministry Conference


Children's Ministry Conferences are designed as a day of teacher enrichment. Participants gain new ideas to enhance their ministry, renew their passion for investing in children, and network with other children's ministry workers who share their heart for leading children toward Jesus. Our next chapter-wide Children's Ministry Conference will be in spring 2023. We can also provide a Children's Ministry Conference just for your church, tailoring our session schedule to your particular needs.
