We invite you to join with other children's ministry leaders, staff, teachers, volunteers, and youth workers to be inspired, encouraged, and equipped for the enduring joy of the next generations!

Foundations and Distinctions of a God-Centered Children's Ministry

What are the biblical foundations for children's ministry? What principles guide your programs? How will you teach children and youth the whole counsel of God? What tools will you impart to the next generation to encourage a lifetime of faith?

David & Sally Michael will answer these questions as they lay out a vision for God-centered ministry to children and youth.

These sessions are essential for those who are new to God-centered ministry, or who want to review the fundamentals.

Plenary Sessions

Children and youth ministry leaders and volunteers need to be encouraged with theological teaching that nourishes their own souls. Our keynote speakers will inspire and encourage you with solid biblical teaching centered on our conference theme, The Splendor of Holiness.

Come to soak in the Word and be personally refreshed. You will leave renewed in your desire to pass on these precious truths to the next generation!


The hands-on training in our seminars provides the perfect complement to the theological teaching in the plenary sessions. Practical instruction from experienced teachers will equip you and your team for real-life ministry to children and their parents.

The 2013 Conference will offer more than 30 seminars, including 10 all-new titles! Before you register, review the workshop options and choose the four that best meet your training needs.
