Resources to help you lead.

One of the things I love about going to conferences is coming home with more than I left with. Last week I was honored to be able to help Jim Wideman lead his Infuse 7 retreat. Infuse is like a conference for 20-30 people with fewer main sessions and way more opportunities to connect. I did a couple of breakouts which I enjoyed but I wanted to share with you some of the new things and resources I came away with that will help me and I hope they help you.

If you have never done Infuse and serve in Kids or Youth ministry you need to. It will transform how you lead.

This Only Happens Once a Year. Don’t Miss It.


My friends have been working on putting this deal together for an entire year.  Hard to believe it’s finally here. The crazy thing is that it’s only available for 144 hours, then it’s over forever.  So, if you serve in ministry, don’t miss this one.  $97 for $1,500+ worth of Children’s Ministry resources.  Starts Friday, August 2 at noon and only lasts 144 hours.  Visit for details.  It’s epic, for sure.

3 things I love about the next conference I’m going to.


There are many conferences out there. Lots of options having gone to many of them I have learned that each one offers a unique take on training, on networking, and on resources.

In a couple of weeks I am going to be speaking at CMLeaders conference in Columbus OH. I am stoked to hear from leaders around the country and to grow in my own leadership. Here a few quick things I love about CMLeaders.

1. While many conference adress leadership, this conference is dedicated to it. The big myth people who get into kids ministry buy into is that I am doing kids ministry because I love kids. The reality is you as a kids pastor need to love people who love kids. That’s leadership.

2. It’s a TED style conference. All general sessions no breakouts – very different but I love TED talks so I am really excited to see how it plays out.

3. Love Michael Chanley‘s passion for equipping and serving people who serve people. Often times conferences take on the personally of the leader. Chanley is a great leader with a huge heart for others.

I hope to see you there. This conference is an amazing opportunity at a great price. REGISTER NOW!
