Christ Fellowship Conference - Breakouts

A Strategy for Equipping Kid’s Ministry at a New Campus

Room: Nitro
Wednesday, Feb. 7 | 12:30pm
Thursday, Feb. 8 | 12:30pm

More and more churches are exploring the model of multiple campuses. Because Christ Fellowship is one church that meets in multiple locations, we strive for consistency throughout our kids’ experiences. We’ll explore our kid’s ministry launch strategy and discuss ways we work toward alignment in ministry implementation at all of our campuses.

Volunteers | Recruiting and Retaining Volunteers

Room: Nitro
Wednesday, Feb. 7 | 2pm
Thursday, Feb. 8 | 2pm

Our ministry to kids and families lives and dies on the commitment and effectiveness of our volunteer teams. Volunteer retention is a key strategy to diminishing the need to recruit. In this conversational session, we’ll explore our CFKids onboarding process and “practices” strategy.

Ministry to Special Needs | Helping Kids with Special Needs Feel Connected

Room: Friends Factory
Wednesday, Feb. 7 | 11:30am
Thursday, Feb. 8 | 11:30am

This session is designed to help churches anticipate and meet the needs of children, adults and families touched by special needs. Every person is a unique creation of God, with individual strengths and needs. The areas of need that affect social, emotional, and academic growth during the week don’t take Sundays off. As the Church, we need to lead the way in showing acceptance and hospitality to our friends with special needs. More importantly, we need to examine our attitudes and ministry culture so that we see everyone as God sees them: vital parts of the Body of Christ.

Elementary Ministry | Building Relational Equity with Busy Families

Room: Friends Factory
Wednesday, Feb. 7 | 2pm
Thursday, Feb. 8 | 2pm

We have a unique opportunity to guide families toward the most important thing their children need – a lifelong relationship with Jesus. We believe that this happens best when the church and parent combine their effort to influence our kids for Christ. However, it’s common knowledge that most families attend church once every 4-6 weeks. Parents are confronted by an overwhelming amount of options when it comes to choosing activities for their kids. Often, they choose sports or academics before church. In this session, we’ll explore some contributing factors to this cultural trend and explore ways to build relationships with families to keep them engaged during these vital spiritual development years.

Early Childhood Ministry | Faith Growth Begins at the Beginning

Room: Nitro
Wednesday, Feb. 7 | 11:30am
Thursday, Feb. 8 | 11:30am

Early childhood ministry is about building trust and laying a strong foundation of love and faith so parents and the church can build on it for future spiritual success. In this session, we’ll explore this important phase and share ways to embrace the needs of this awesome age group. We’ll also discuss ways we can partner with parents to help equip them in these younger years to be the spiritual leaders God calls them to be.
