Children’s Ministry Conferences 2012


Revival Fire For Kids will be at two conferences in March – CLA Focus and OCEA. I’ll teach workshops at both conferences. I also can have a worker training event at your church that’s geared toward your workers. I’ve included that in this list.

Here’s a schedule of conferences for 2012. Some of the conferences are for multiple ministries in the church, but I included them because they have a great children’s ministry emphasis.

Make Demons Tremble Kid’s Crusade

If your children’s ministry has a harvest party or Autumn carnival in October, you can make it even more special by booking Revival Fire For Kids to do a one day kid’s crusade called Make Demons Tremble.  Your students will learn to make demons tremble at the name of Jesus.

This event will show children that they have power over the enemy in the Name of Jesus. It’s based on James 2:19. It will also be evangelistic, so it’s perfect for both church kids and kids who have never been to church.

This crusade will work around the party or community event you have planned or we can do a complete two hour kid’s crusade. We want to work with your program.
