The Kidmin Conference kicked into full gear. Here are some of the highlights for me.
General session with Dr. Lazarus Chakwera
God has not given up on our world and He refuses to give up on the next generation. Dr. Lazarus Chakwera
We need to help our kids grow 4 dimensionally physically, intellectually, socially and spiritually. Dr. Lazarus Chakwera
As we build the next generation God uses this generation. Dr. Lazarus Chakwera
The next generation is a reflection, for better or for worse of the previous generation. Dr. Lazarus Chakwera
Unless we connect our story to Gods big story our lives and our kids lives will have no meaning. Dr. Lazarus Chakwera
Dr. Chakwera ended with the following statement I’ve been thinking about ever since “Am I leaving a footprint big enough for someone to follow?” Dr. Chakwera’s talk was very inspiring and challenging.
After the evening session I got a chance to connect with Craig Johnson had an amazing time talking with him and hearing his heart. I was inspired by his story and his passion for kids with special needs. Craig is a world-class leader and I feel fortunate to hang out with him at all. Love his humility and his passion to see kids with special needs experience church in the same way a typical kid would.
If you are a kids pastor and you want to start a special needs ministry but don’t know where to start Craig is working on creating a scalable model for kids pastors and for churches of all types and sizes. I can’t wait to see what Craig and his team come out with the Kingdom needs this and I am pumped beyond words.
Friday was a great day. I feel blessed and humbled to be apart of the Kidmin Conference its first year.
