Children's Desiring God National Conference 2009

UncategorizedJared Kennedy2 Comments

David Kidd and I are headed out tomorrow to the Children's Desiring God National Conference.  Please pray for us as we go and learn about children's ministy.  Check back here for live blogs (or summaries--depending on WiFi access) of the sessions.   This is the theme of the conference:  As we understand all of life as it relates to God at the center, we will be more equipped to orient children to the centrality of God.   Plenary speakers include John Piper, Paul David Tripp, Bruce Ware and David Michael.  In addition, a number of diverse and experienced seminar leaders will provide practical help and encouragement for parents, teachers, leaders, and all who are invested in ministry to children and youth.  I'm particularly excited about hanging out with Tim Jones (who is leading a seminar on family ministry) and Catherine McKenzie (who works for our friends at Christian Focus publishing).
