Why Go to CPC? (Children’s Pastor’s Conference)

You may be asking, “Why go to the expense of attending Children’s Pastor’s Conference?”

I believe that I can offer  some answers to that question, and I hope you will consider attending either Orlando 2014 or San Diego 2013. CPC is an amazing conference for not just Children’s Pastors. If you are involved in kid’s ministry, you can and should attend.

First, Everyone needs a time to rest, learn, and worship. At CPC, you are given exactly those opportunities. The schedule is set up in such a way that you can take some time to rest and refresh yourself.  There are many great breakout sessions (watch my blog for the notes to the ones I attended as well as some links to several blogs with notes from CPC13) The breakouts are broken down into many tracks, such as: Administration, Pre-school, Elementary, Leadership/self-care, Creative Teaching. These breakouts are full of great information and opportunities to rub shoulders with others who are in kidmin.

Worship- Each year INCM, brings in some great worship leaders who lead us to the throne and a time to really focus on praise! This year was another great year of worship and I was often in awe of the majesty of God. Another great reason to attend CPC, is the opportunity to interact with people from all around our country and world. I’ve had the privilege of meeting some great people this year and am blessed to have formed some amazing friendships. The body of Christ is a wonderful thing when it comes together around the purpose of glorifying God and reaching the next generation.  There are great opportunities to talk and learn from others. 

A third reason I’ll share is the resource area! There are so many great resources to see and check out at CPC that it can almost be overwhelming. All the major publishers are here sharing their latest and greatest materials as well as many amazing ministries and organizations that can help improve your kids ministry.

The final reason, is the opportunity to be feed yourself. I don’t know about you but I often don’t get the chance to worship and listen to preaching. At CPC, they bring in some wonderful speakers for the general sessions that will impact your heart and life.

Is CPC worth the time and money? ABSOLUTELY!!  I can tell you after attending three years, it was and is worth it.

If you attended CPC, what was your favorite part?
