The past two years have seen many changes in ministry. Church leaders have been forced to answer questions like: Do we meet in person? Do we have children’s ministry if we meet? Will we require face coverings? Where have all the families gone? How do I find enough volunteers? If you are like many in children’s ministry, we wish we could fast forward past COVID-19 and find a new, more robust rhythm of life and ministry.

This year’s TELL: Teach, Equip, Love and Lead Ministry Conference is quickly approaching. The theme this year is “Fast Forward.”

The past two years have seen many changes in ministry. Church leaders have been forced to answer questions like: Do we meet in person? Do we have children’s ministry if we meet? Will we require face coverings? Where have all the families gone? How do I find enough volunteers?

If you are like many in children’s ministry, we wish we could fast forward past COVID-19 and find a new, more robust rhythm of life and ministry.

This year’s TELL conference has a twist that we hope will make it accessible to everyone. We will offer a hybrid experience with two options for your convenience. One option will be virtual, allowing you to participate in TELL breakouts at your convenience. Breakouts will be about 20 long and can be viewed anywhere, at any time, on or after March 19.

The second option will be a live conference at Pleasant Garden Baptist Church on March 19 from 9 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Breakouts will be 45 minutes in length with the same information as online but in a more “robust” format.

Chuck Peters, director of Lifeway Kids, will be our virtual keynote speaker. Before his role at Lifeway, Peters had a prolific career in television and video production. He is a three-time Emmy Award-winning producer, director, writer and on-screen talent. Peters brings years of experience serving and leading in children’s ministry.

We hope you and your team will join us for TELL 2022: Fast Forward! Visit us online to register and to learn more about scheduled breakout sessions.
