SEPTEMBER 6-9, 2018

CONNECT
A Children and Family Ministries Convention

CONNECT with our God. CONNECT with families and children. CONNECT with other leaders in ministry.

God created us as beings who long for connection with Him and other people. Yet, our modern world of rushing and social media has made it harder and harder to make and maintain deep relationships. The CONNECT Convention has been prayerfully designed to empower Children and Family Ministry leaders and volunteers throughout PUC and NAD in the discipleship of connection. Together we will learn how to CONNECT with each other, church members, the community, and most importantly with our Savior.

Mike Tucker

 is the Speaker/Director for Faith For Today Television Ministries and serves as the host of the award-winning show, Lifestyle Magazine. Join us Thursday night and hear how being Mad About Marriage will help you CONNECT and stay madly in love forever.

Nwamiko Madden

 is the former Director of Children's Ministry and Communication for the Alberta conference, and will be speaking on how to have a deeper CONNECTion with children.

Beverly Maravilla

Pastor of Children and Family Ministries for La Sierra University Church will be preaching on our relational God and our CONNECTion with Him.

Manny Cruz

Director of Youth Ministries at Arizona Conference will close off the convention speaking on the importance of a holistic approach to CONNECTing with one another and our Heavenly Father. Then ending with a special ministry dedication for lay leaders.
