We are super excited to announce the location of the 2017 Children’s Ministry Conference: Graceland Baptist Church in New Albany, Indiana. Just minutes north of Louisville, our partnership with Graceland for the 2017 conference will allow room for growth in many areas. We’ll have more room for breakouts and a larger Resource Connection Center. Additionally, we’ll be pushing back to an earlier part of the year. Moving our conference from mid-April / late-March to the last week of February is going to prevent some of the scheduling conflicts we’ve been challenged with in the past.

Please join us in thanking the staff and leadership of Graceland Baptist Church. Their Children’s Pastor, Rob Tuma, was instrumental in this partnership. We’ll share more information about 2017’s event as it comes available. However, for now, please mark your calendars for February 20-23, 2017 and help us spread the word. It’s going to be an amazing conference!
