Would you like to serve at CPC with the INCM team?

Every year, over 100 children's and family ministry leaders from around the globe apply to volunteer at the Children's Pastors Conference (CPC).

The CPC Volunteer Program gives leaders the opportunity to live out the mission of INCM: to connect children's ministry leaders to resources, training, and community. This program provides an economical way for ministry leaders to participate and serve at the conference when the budget might not allow for participation otherwise.

While serving at CPC21, you will join dozens of passionate leaders united in calling to experience a week that you'll never forget!

Feeling called to serve? Read the volunteer information below, and fill out the CPC21 volunteer application.

The last day for US applicants to submit their application will be August 15. US applications received after August 15 will be considered for our CPC21 waiting list.

To our international friends, thank you so much for your interest in our Children's Pastors Conference Volunteer Program!  Unfortunately, with the current health and travel conditions, INCM is not able to accept international applications this year.  We look forward to serving with you next year at CPC22.
