Breakouts at CPC are led by ministry leaders and experts that offer you a comprehensive learning experience. With over 120 breakouts to choose from, they are organized into Tracks and Topical Categories to help you identify what would best meet your training needs.

Breakouts for CPC19 will be posted in September 2018.

Interested in speaking at CPC19? Check back in April for access to the CPC19 Breakout Speaker Application.


As a CPC participant, you have the opportunity to schedule a free, 30 minute coaching session at CPC19! The purpose of coaching is to serve the needs of you, our participants, by helping, inspiring, and equipping you in your role as a children’s ministry leader. Coaching is meant to help leaders move from where they are to where they believe God is leading them to be. Our panel of coaches is deeply committed to you, and helping you do just that.

CPC19 Coaching Panel: Coming soon!
