There’s a new conference in town and I am very excited about it. Group is hosting a children’s ministry conference October 7-10, 2011 in Chicago. There are many speakers such as Jim Wideman, Greg Baird, and Dale Hudson to name a few. You can find the complete listing of speakers here: http://www.childrensministry.com/kidmin-conference/speakers-artists/speakers.
I would have to say what excites me most about this conference is the Connect Groups. This is an opportunity where people in similar ministries can get together and chat, exchange ideas, and get to know each other in a small group type of setting. There are 20 different Connect Groups listed so there is something for everyone. You can find the complete listing of Connect Groups here: http://www.childrensministry.com/kidmin-conference/relate-relax/connect-groups.
Also available are Deeper Learning Tracks, Half Tracks, and Workshops on a variety of topics from leadership to worship to connecting with parents. There are main sessions with Jim Wideman and Christine Yount Jones and more to look forward to as well.
One of the three reasons listed on the Kidmin Conference website as to why you should choose to attend this conference is:
AUTHENTIC CONVERSATIONS You’ll enjoy genuine conversations and connections. We believe relationships are essential, so we invite you to be known, be heard, and be valued in a caring environment built for connecting with others. There’s always a time and a place for authentic conversation.
Make plans to attend this conference and bring your team!
