Forming Children in the Gospel

As a community of children’s ministry and next-gen ministry leaders, it is vitally important to cultivate both sound doctrine and practices within our ministries. This foundational approach is essential for molding young believers into devoted followers of Jesus, capable of living out the Gospel with a blend of grace and truth, particularly in a world marked by hostility and compromise.

The 2024 Child Discipleship Forum will help you nurture children’s faith with a focus on Biblical conviction and Christ-like compassion through discussions on the Gospel, community, apologetics, culture, discipleship practices, and interviews with experts.
