Breakout Sessions

You will get to attend 2 breakout sessions this year. Designed to be longer and more in depth to provide you with great training and community building time. 

You will sign up for breakouts at the event.  

Special Needs: How to adapt

Do you struggle with how to adapt your curriculum, space and programs to best minister to students with a variety of special needs? Come learn some practical, real life tips from fellow Children’s Minister Ben Avery.

Teaching: Is anyone listening?

Do you ever look around at a sea of little eyes and wonder "is anyone even getting this?" Pastor Carrie gives some practical tips and tricks to help your students "get it". 

Pastor Carrie Badertscher serves as the community pastor. Her primary focus is on families, youth, and children. She also serves as a resident missionary in the community with Keller Park Ministries. She finds great delight in people and strives to live her life with whimsy. Her most favorite things are vacations, block parties, and laughing kids. She is the mama of two spicy little ladies and one chubby-cheeked-and-incredibly-sweet son. Her sidekick in life is her husband, David (who patiently endures all the whimsy).

Classroom Management

Come learn how to manage behaviors and engage kids in the classroom from two veteran teachers. April & Angela will provide insight, tools and answer questions to those seeking to learn how to make their classes or small groups more effective.

April Geibe is currently a kindergarten teacher at Granger Christian School with over 15 years teaching experience under her belt. She also has faithfully served her church in many areas, including children's ministry. 

Angela Vega is currently a first grade teacher at Granger Christian School with 18 years of elementary teaching experience. Angela has also been a Sunday school teacher for over 20 years and served in her churches VBS and Awana. 

Jesus in the Old Testament

Jesus told us that all of Scripture points to himself (Luke 24:27). But sometimes it's difficult to see him in the Old Testament, especially for our kids. In this workshop we want to equip you with practices and resources to help your kids see the gospel of Jesus in the Old Testament. 

Pastor Jason and Pastor Matt who serve together at Redeemer Missionary will team teach this breakout.
