6. What about my kids?
We welcome the addition of children at our conference! We understand that the missions field includes the entire family. In preparation for their arrival, we have prepared age appropriate activities, food and services for your children. Infants up to grade 6 will have separate classes and services to attend as an option other than the main services and day sessions. Teens grades 7-12 and older are invited to participate in some of the main services with their parents, and experience the worship, Word and move of the Spirit during these times. Special teen-only events are also planned during the week. The Apostolic Conference is a family friendly environment!
