Resource Center

While the Resource Center experience is different this year, the purpose remains the same: providing you with access to tools, resources, and people that help you lead and grow as a leader who disciples kids and families.

During CPC21 Online, once you click on a Resource Provider, you will be taken to their personalized booth page where you will find valuable information, downloadable resources, free gifts, information request forms, and in most cases, an actual person to chat with live! The Resource Providers are available live via the in-booth chat feature to answer your questions, so plan to visit and chat with them throughout the event.


It wouldn’t be the CPC21 Resource Center if there were not amazing giveaways, prizes, and games … this year will be no exception! You’re not going to believe the prizes and giveaways coming!

The CPC21 Online Store is also available in the Resource Center where you can find gifts for yourself and your team members.
