Children & Family Ministries

The Big Ideas tour is all about sharing – what’s working for you, what are your struggles, how could your experience benefit other kids ministry leaders, and how can the conference best support you in ministry.

New this year – we are adding Families. We all have to agree that Sabbath School, vespers and Pathfinders / Adventurers are brilliant ministries. But how much impact does this have alone if the home isn’t Godly? This year we are looking to also engage with issues around families, and how as churches we can encourage and equip Godly homes. We desire to see our children grow to know and experience God from those who have the greatest influence on their – THEIR WHANAU (be it parent/s, grandparent/s, Uncles or Aunties, siblings or whoever else may be raising and influencing them). Come and discuss / explore together more about how we can be equipping not only our children but also our parents in Christ.

All children’s and family ministry leaders and workers are invited
to join in the dialogue.
