The #1 Reason to Attend CMConnect Conference

2018-05-07T14:54:39+00:00

I just got back from another amazing week at the CMConnect Conference. This is my third year in a row being a part of this unique kid's ministry conference. Last year I wrote about my top 3 reasons to attend CMConnect Conference. Why do I keep going back year after year? It's not because it is the biggest conference. It's not because they put on the best "show" in their main sessions. It's not because it is held in the best vacation spot. The #1 reason I attend the CMConnect Conference every year is because of the people. Now, I don't mean [...]

Thursday at the D6 Conference was all about the general sessions. We had the privilege of hearing from many influential voices in ministry over the course of four general sessions.

When Family Ministry Doesn’t Work – #D62017 Breakout Notes

2018-04-22T20:16:05+00:00

Christina Embree is wife to Pastor Luke, mom to three great kids, and an experienced family minister. She is passionate about seeing churches partner with families to encourage faith formation at home and equipping parents to disciple their kids in the faith. I have been to several of Christina's breakouts at past conferences, and I always love hearing her heart for bringing discipleship into the home. I always leave even more challenged to partner with the families in my ministry. You can check out my notes from my favorite breakout of hers here.

I'm so excited to be back at the CMConnect Conference again this year. This year I have the honor and privilege of being on the social media team as well as leading a few breakouts. The conference began on Monday evening, and there have been two main sessions as well as a day full of dynamic breakouts so far. If I had to leave tonight, I would have already received so much from the conference, but we still have two more days!

CMConnect Conference 2017

As Kid's Pastors we have many options to choose from when it comes to conferences. It's great to have options, but many of us can only choose one or two conferences to attend each year. That's a tough choice to make! I had the privilege of attending CMConnect Conference last year as a part of their social media team, and it was a refreshing experience. I am honored to be joining the team again this year, as well as leading a few workshops. CMConnect Conference is unlike any other conference I have attended and is designed to connect, serve and advance [...]
