KidMin 2014 | Columbus, OH, September 26-29, 2014

Core Values of KidMin

Be authentic. Be yourself. Let Jesus be the center of everything. Make a new friend by being a friend. Marinate in discovery learning so training seeps deep into your roots. You’re a child of the Creator of the universe, so don’t be afraid to innovate. If you’re not relevant, you’ll miss out. Change the world. We believe in you!

Every session, every training opportunity, everything about our time together is about you walking away with deeper learning, authentic conversations, and renewed passion. The KidMin Conference is more than a conference; it’s a ministry experience that holds true to these six core values in all we do…

 

 

Jesus-Centered

Jesus-Centered

We believe in an agenda that serves and builds the kingdom first, empowers ministry and spiritual growth, and reflects Jesus in our actions and decisions.Jesus is elevated first and foremost at KidMin. Put simply, we ask Jesus to do what all the planning, research, and organization in the world can’t do—to minister to you exactly as you need in each programmed (and unprogrammed) minute you’re here.

Authenticity

Authenticity

You know authenticity when you see it…and it’s powerful. We intentionally make authenticity the root of each KidMin component. Your time here should be a time of ministry, not a “production.” Whatever you’re going through, you’ll find people here who are willing to share openly and honestly that they’ve been at the exact same place. Let’s get real together!

Relationship & Conversation

Relationship & Conversation

You’ll learn from our topnotch presenters, but you’ll also learn from each other. Pursue relationships with everyone you encounter here (we’ve made it easy!)—other children’s ministers, Group staff, presenters, ministry partners, and volunteers. Don’t be shy…ask for one-on-one connections over coffee, during a meal, or plopped down on an Xorbee chair. 

In-depth Training

In-depth Training

We value quality teaching
as defined by Group’s standards of R.E.A.L.: Relational, Experiential, Applicable, and Learner-based. This marinade style of learning provides extended time for in-depth  learning, discussion, and discovery. It’s powerful training that’s led by innovative, in-the-trenches leaders who embody our Core Values.

Innovation

Innovation

We value being “pioneers”—not being tied to “the way it’s always been done” or following in the footsteps of other conferences. We believe in the value of always asking ourselves “how can we do it better?” and creating new experiences each year. We’ll surprise you and challenge you with our innovations.

Relevance

Relevance

We maximize your learning by being on the cutting
edge of trends in church, kid culture, technology, and understanding what’s happening in the trenches of children’s ministry. KidMin is relevant to all of who you are. Our goal is to equip and encourage you as a “whole” person—in ministry and in personal and spiritual development.
