Relationships–We intentionally create our conference to nurture and facilitate relationships. There are so many wonderful friends that I’m eager to see–and new people I’m hoping to meet. I can’t wait to whisk Danielle Bell away for dinner and catch up with her. I’m eager to hug our amazing presenters! I’m excited to meet all our keynotes that I don’t know yet–and learn more from them. I can’t wait to laugh with Lisa Burney, Amy Bishop, and Kathleen Shrader–they crack me up! I want to “party” with our Inside Track–as long as they keep it down this year! There are so many more people I’m eager to connect with!

Rejuvenation–I don’t know about you, but I’m a tad tired! I need the KidMin Conference to boost my motivation and open my eyes to the “why” of my day-in-and-day-out labor. I need to hear the stories of how God is moving in ministries across the world. I need to pray with people who share my heart for reaching children for Jesus! I need to see the thousands of people whose hearts beat faster for the very things that make my heart speed up. Not everyone in the world gets excited about REAL learning and kids loving Jesus like we do.

Refreshing–I need to meet with my Savior in some in-depth worship with Shane & Shane, and Bethany Dillon. I need to disappear in the amazing things God is going to do. I’ve felt led by God as we’ve “programmed” new surprises for our general sessions to simply create an environment for God to show up in personal and intimate ways with each person there. I’m eager for God to show up for you–and for me.
