Spring 2021

Encouragement and empowerment through community with children's ministry leaders.

These online events give you a space to hear from veteran leaders and have conversations that will ignite your children’s and family ministries.

Welcome to

Ministry Spark Conversations

We need each other when it comes to leading well in children and family ministry. Here’s what you can expect from our online Ministry Spark Conversations.


  • These online events are 2 hours long—from 12-2PM Eastern—and are full of awesome content you won’t want to miss.

Order of Each Event

  • The first thing we’ll do is worship together through music and song.
  • Then we’ll hear from a ministry expert with actionable ideas and strategies for ministry now in a 30-minute talk.
  • Next, we’ll split up into breakout rooms where you will be able to discuss questions and have conversation with other ministry leaders from around the country. There will be 10 leaders in each breakout room so that everyone has a chance to connect.
  • Lastly, we’ll come back together to wrap up and cheer you on!


  • Ministry Spark Conversations each cost $10 per person. The price includes your event registration and a digital ministry resource.
