Pre-Conference Opportunities for Adults in Chicago:

On Friday afternoon from 1-4 pm, we will offer several pre-conference workshops for adults. The cost is $25/person; there is only time to attend one session on Friday afternoon.

  • Women’s Ministry Training – Marcie Tuten
    • Thinking Biblically and Living Covenantally – Our Women’s Ministry Training gives women a framework to think biblically about who God is and who He is calling women to be in the context of home, workplace, and church. It also provides tools to help women cultivate a Word-based and relationally-driven discipleship culture that can help establish, reinvigorate, or tune-up a Women’s Ministry that will strengthen the entire church.
  • Children’s Ministry Training – Katie Flores, B.A. Snider
    • Investing in the Covenant Family – “Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised!” The Psalmist says God makes His greatness known through stories of His mighty deeds (Psalm 145:1-9). The good news of salvation becomes real as we declare the things He has done. The message and method of sharing God’s mighty deeds changes over time, though the privilege (and duty) remains. This preconference considers the opportunities and challenges of telling the next generation the great deeds of the Lord in the various chapters of our lives. If you desire to gain confidence in sharing the glorious deeds of the Lord with the next generation, come join us for this interactive workshop. Walk away with tools in your toolbox for engaging children of all ages.
  • Navigating Sexuality and Gender: Biblical Truth and God’s Compassionate Wisdom – Ellen Dykas
    • Parents’ and Youth Leaders’ Track – Practical guidance on understanding God’s design for sexuality and gender, why and how kids are struggling, and how we can help them grow up living faithfully in Christ while also resisting worldly influences and teaching. Moms and youth leaders: God has given you everything you need to engage this important ministry, as you learn what God has already put in your ‘discipleship tool belt.’
  • Created for a Purpose – Ingram Link
    • Created for a Purpose Ministries exists to train, equip, and resource churches to host creative arts camps for 3rd through 8th grade girls! Daily art projects serve as tangible reminders of biblical truths, and a day-camp structure allows high school, college, and adult women to participate in intergenerational ministry. This pre-conference workshop will share what it looks like for a church to offer Created for a Purpose to its own congregation and larger community. Specifically, the workshop will:
      • Introduce the ministry, presenting an overview of what Created for a Purpose is and how it functions;

      • Walk through big picture logistics: the team you need to assemble, spiritual curriculum, project curriculum, and camp organization;

      • Outline resources host churches have access to when partnering with Created for a Purpose Ministries.
        Our prayer is that through this ministry, God would draw ladies both young and young at heart to himself. We hope you will join us for this workshop!
