CPC16 Breakouts Are Here!

Children's Pastors' Conference 2016 CPC16

It feels like Christmas has arrived here in the INCM office because the breakouts are now up on the CPC16 website!

We’re thrilled about the line-up this year – the incredible speakers, the deep and relevant content, and the opportunities for development are tremendous!

We have crafted 6 tracks of content, and 9 topical categories to make up the span of breakout training at CPC16.

Tracks Categories are uniquely curated courses of content specifically focused on an area identified as a need in the children’s ministry landscape for this ministry year. These tracks, made up of seven breakouts each, will provide the participant with information, inspiration, practical tools, and a holistic perspective of the theme of that track.

Topical Categories Breakouts are those that do not fall into the six Tracks. These important and powerful breakouts are tagged with descriptive words that help the participant identify the category a session falls into. The Topical Category Breakouts are comprehensive and vital content.

Please note: Participants are not required to stay in a track for every breakout, and participants who do not follow a track are absolutely free to participate in breakouts that are in a track. Tracks are simply a unique way to organize content focused on specific subjects.

Here’s a look at your CPC16 breakout Tracks and Topical Categories!

4 Tips for Including Men in Your Children’s Ministry

Like many children’s ministers, I joined the ranks by being an over-eager volunteer turned employee. When I was in the basement volunteering, only 1% of our volunteers were men. I didn’t have a male Sunday School teacher until I was 16 years old. It seems an unspoken rule that children’s ministry leaders are female.

Your ministry is amazing! You are passionate and dedicated, and you pour out your enthusiasm week after week, month after month, year after year! And yet, sometimes it can feel like you’re the only one who is totally sold out and bought into the mission of reaching kids for Jesus.
