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 with special speakers just for your children. Infants up to Grade 6 will have separate classes and services to attend while the parents are involved in the services (day and evening sessions). Teens Grades 7-12 are invited to participate in some of the main services with their parents to experience the worship, Word, and move of the Spirit during these times. In addition, special teen-only events with guest speakers are also planned during the week. The Apostolic Conference is a family friendly environment!
