This event is closed. If you have any questions, please contact the planner directly.

So now you are no longer strangers and aliens. Rather, you are fellow citizens with God’s people, and you belong to God’s household. As God’s household, you are built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets with Christ Jesus himself as the cornerstone. (Ephesians 2:19-20, CEB)

Fresh illustrations of faith formation are taking root and growing throughout United Methodist congregations and communities, and it is time for Children’s Ministers to be All In!

In response to The 1979 International Year of the Child, The United Methodist Church created a conference called FOCUS! Decades later, we once again respond to the spiritual needs of our children using methods that address how children grow in faith in a rapidly changing world. Today we know more than ever the importance of intentional relationships, so engaging with children and their families both in our congregations and in our communities is vital.

All In! – A Children’s Faith Formation Intensive is not a traditional conference. Children’s ministers will spend 12+ intensive hours in small groups learning from a team of academics, experts, and practitioners to ...

  • create a plan for having courageous conversations with children, parents, and church leadership;
  • develop practices of pastoral care of children in our congregations and our communities;
  • identify intentional ways of including children’s faith formation in the disciple-making system of the local church; and
  • reconnect with personal spiritual practices.
