KidMin is only a
little over a month away and we can't wait to see you in Columbus!
As you're making your travel preparations and gearing up for your
KidMin experience, look into options for arriving early to take
advantage of the incredible
pre-conference (pre-con) sessions. They start on opening day,
Friday, October 11th, at 9am and are only an additional $59 for
seven hours of training, with lunch included!
pre-con sessions will take you in-depth on the topic and
maximize your overall training experience at KidMin. Sessions wrap
up at 4pm, so you'll have time to grab dinner and get ready for the
exciting opening general session.
Here's what previous KidMin guests are saying about what you can
expect to gain from a pre-con.
1. A jumpstart on networking with peers and Presenters.
"For me, attending a pre-con at KidMin was like enjoying
a special appetizer; a perfect treat after time-crunched travel.
The pre-con day gave me that refreshing 'appetizer' I so
desperately needed. The pace was a bit slower and the halls, less
crowded. As a first-time attender at KidMin, this allowed me to
meet and talk with new friends, and connect with folks I'd only met
online. These chats led to deeper conversations, shared meals,
belly laughs, and prayers throughout the conference. In addition,
the classes I attended enriched and challenged me, allowing me to
shift gears from serving others at work and home to receiving
wisdom from experts who understand. What a treat. When you're at
KidMin, be sure you order the 'appetizer.' You'll be glad you
2. Preparation for your heart and mind for the full KidMin
"I attended a pre-con not knowing what to expect and
wondering if it would've been better to skip it. But, what I
experienced during my pre-con was just what I needed. The
preconference session set me up mentally, spiritually, and even
physically for the rest of the KidMin Conference. I arrived feeling
exhausted and empty, but left [the pre-con] feeling filled,
exhilarated, and excited. I was able to
prepare myself for being open to what God wanted to teach me the
rest of the weekend. It was fantastic!"

3. Focused, in-depth training.
"I loved it [attending a pre-con] because it's a 'total
immersion' experience of sorts; you're spending several hours
concentrating on one topic. It allows you time to digest
information on a topic you're really plugged into before the
busyness of the conference starts. My friend that came to KidMin
with me and I were so glad that we'd carved out the extra time for
the pre-con. It gave us time during the conference to attend
workshops in new areas that we might have missed otherwise. I'm so
thankful this is an option! Give a pre-con a try, you won't be
