Why you need to come back to – CPC Orlando

cpc 2013

I went CPC last year for the first time it was amazing the conversations that where had the quality of the teaching that was available in each breakout and main session. Most people I talked to said there was “something different” about CPC. Michael Chanley and his team have done an amazing job to create value all year round focused on the five values INCM refers to as initives.

Here they are:

  • Impart God’s truth to this generation
  • Provide a safe and relevant environment
  • Communicate with families
  • Network with a community of leaders
  • Pray for the international children’s ministry community

When a conference is built around simple values it rather than just getting people to attend it creates sustainable value to you and your team all year long.

If you want to connect with me I’ll be at the Orlando location, doing two breakouts.

How to Communicate to Kids – Creative Teaching
Sam Luce
How to communicate to kids from large groups, small groups to one on one. Practical ways to hold their attention and bring application.

Volunteers want to know WHY – Volunteers
Sam Luce
Talk about the why behind the what of ministry. How volunteers want to know why we need them and why they need us. How our why must be found in the correct who.

Bottom line CPC is a great conference that has been around for over 30 years and is only getting better. If you have never come to CPC come this year. If it’s been a while come see what so different. Hope to see you there.

If you haven’t registered make sure you do it NOW and you will be registered to win a ton of prizes like Kindle Fires, Nexus 7, and free airfare and lodging to CPC. So do it now get registered.


Why we all love Sam Luce!!!

So, let’s use this opportunity to talk about Sam and encourage him…
