In just a few weeks (six to be exact), something VERY EXCITING is happening in Nashville, Tennessee! Maybe you’ve seen our previous posts on KMC, our annual conference for leaders in kids ministry. We can’t quit talking about it here on the Kids Min floor of Lifeway, and I wanted to give you a heads up on a few workshops you should definitely check out:
Teaching to Teach: Equipping Your Leaders to be Better than You
Jeffrey Reed, Director of Lifeway Kids
This isn’t a session about leading a small group for kids. It goes deeper. You can already do it because it’s your job, right? Can all of your leaders? Jeffrey will focus on equipping you to inspire and recruit committed leaders.
Raising Boys and Girls
David Thomas, Director of Men and Boys’ Counseling, Sissy Goff, Director of Child and Adolescent Counseling, and Melissa Trevathan, Executive Director, Daystar Counseling
David helps you understand and explore the hearts, minds, and ways of boys and the vital role we play on the journey from boy to manhood. Sissy dives into the heart of girls to help adults understand the different stages of development for girls: what is normal, what is not, and how to relate effectively. Get excited for encouragement and insight from some of our best session leaders!
Jana Magruder, Director of Kids Ministry Publishing
Come hear a strategy that will help you attract and sustain leaders, develop and maintain upcoming leaders, all while discipling the youngest of these. Join Jana to hear about the “layered discipleship” effect and how it can change the way you look at volunteer recruitment and retention, developing new leaders, and growing the next generation with hearts for Jesus.
Just reading over these descriptions gets me so excited for October 7-10th! We hope you’ll join us!
