The Beyond Conference is for anyone working in children’s ministry (paid or volunteer) who would like to connect with other children’s ministers, share resources, and develop new ideas.
This year’s theme will be “Beyond Children” based on Deuteronomy 6: 4-9:
Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God,
the Lord is one.
Love the Lord your God with all
your heart and with all your soul and
with all your strength. These
commandments that I give you today
are to be on your hearts. Impress them
on your children. Talk about them when
you sit at home and when you walk along
the road, when you lie down and when
you get up. Tie them as symbols on
your hands and bind them on your foreheads.
Write them on the door frames
of your houses and on your gates.
The 2017 featured speaker is Rev. Melissa Cooper who is the expert in Inter-generational Ministry for the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church. She serves at the Life Enrichment Center in Fruitland Park, FL.
