I will make valuable connections.


Every conference includes time to connect with other leaders. This is a great opportunity to meet with children’s pastors across the country who are willing to share and learn from one another. Children’s ministry can be isolating, but I will leave the event surrounded by a community of ministry leaders with the same heart and passion.

I will bring back lessons and best practices to share with our team.


The CPC community is not only filled with incredible children’s ministry leaders eager to share and collaborate, but after listening to the General Sessions and meeting with a coach at the event, I will head back to our ministry filled with new ideas and information worthy of sharing with the rest of the staff. My energy and excitement will be a boost not only for my volunteers, but everyone on the staff.

We hope you and your ministry staff can join us for the next one!

What other Senior Leaders are saying about CPC


Attending CPC last year provided me the opportunity to engage with our children’s ministry team and some key volunteers. It helped them feel cared for, listened to, and helped tear down our organizational silos. What I did not anticipate was how much the conference would bless, challenge, and inspire me personally.
I would strongly encourage lead or senior pastors to invest these few days to connect with and supporting their children’s ministry teams, but also attend for the benefit of their leadership , their influence and their spiritual well being.

Wayne, Senior Pastor – Illinois

As a pastor we have many options available to us when it comes to investing in our staff, but it’s harder to discover the opportunity to learn something together, however CPC is that rare treat that offers both under one roof. There may not be a better investment for a Senior Pastor to make in their children’s areas than to attend CPC alongside the leaders that make ministry to children and families happen week after week. Do more this year than sending…go! Go with them and see with your own eyes and hear with your own ears what God could do in your church through the lives of children and those that love them!”
Jonathan, Executive Pastor – Tennessee

As a pastor it’s important to have all of your staff on the same page. Attending CPC with my Children’s Pastor and ministry team helped us in so many ways bring unity and shared vision to our church. I would highly recommend this as a team building and bonding event for churches. You will reap eternal rewards from this investment.”
Eric, Senior Pastor – Texas

CPC helped our church break out of the box and think creatively about reaching kids and families. The energy and excitement I felt after each conference was contagious and it infected a number of people serving in our church. Our team is spiritually fed at this conference specifically in the general sessions when the Pastors are Pastored.
