praying the names of God

kidmin conference

Start date: September 22, 2017

End date: September 24, 2017

Location: chicago, il

we’ve created a setting that feels more like a family reunion than a conference. at KidMin you’ll find a place where you’re seen and heard… where you can learn and actually leave with a plan… where you can make meaningful connections with other children’s ministers…where you can be spiritually fed.

here’s what i will teaching on this year:

ETCH conference 2017

Start date: October 16, 2017

End date: October 18, 2017

Location: Music City Center - Nashville

As ministry leaders, we must be rooted in Scripture. ETCH attendees will leave Music City Center with a renewed passion and excitement for God-breathed words. With insightful content and engaging speakers, ETCH Family Ministry Conference will dive into what it means to root our activities, decisions, and strategies in Scripture and lead our ministries based on the Word, and nothing less.

I am so excited to be leading the following two sessions at ETCH Family Ministry Conference this fall.

Partner with Parents to Point Their Kids to Christ:
If we believe that the family is the primary place for faith training, how can we come alongside families and encourage, challenge and equip them as they point and lead their children to Christ? We will explore ways to teach truth at home, how to build the bridge from church to home, offering Christ-centered training for families at church and more.
Kids are the Church of Today:
If we believe children become a part of the Body of Christ the moment they accept Jesus as Lord and Savior, how come they are so often sidelined until the are “old enough” to be a part of the church? We will explore ways to intentionally create a culture where kids activity participate, serve, and engage in the church as soon as they are believers.
