Frequently Asked Questions

We design these events to primarily connect you with God and other likeminded people in ministry just like you. When you come, you’ll be treated to a light breakfast and have some time to meet some new friends and catch up with old friends, too. We’ll spend some time in worship led by a local leader. Then we’ll jump into the main topic, led by a vetted ministry leader. After time to hear and process at tables, we’ll pray and be sent back into our ministry fields.
Anyone with a heart for children’s or family ministry! We have many kids’ pastors that come on their own, and we have full staff and volunteer teams come out as well. Having someone else (whether staff or volunteer) that’s on your team to come and process the conversation can be extremely helpful to implementing what you learn back in your ministry!
It got a new coat of paint! From the beginning, we wanted our network events to be about more than just the events. Ministry Spark is the best place online to get the inspiration and encouragement you need to take your ministry to the next level. Because we’ve been doing the same thing at our Network events, we thought it only made sense to put them in step with one another.
This event hovers above the discussion of curriculum use and preference. The focus is on you as a leader.
We’re planning out the next round of cities already and would love to consider it! We also may have some surprises in the works for an online event in the future. We’ll have more info soon. In the meantime, sign up for Ministry Spark emails to stay in the loop for all things related!
