Children’s Ministry Forum comes to Little Rock in November

CMF bannerFor the first time in the history of the event, Discipleship Ministries is presenting the biennial Children’s Ministry Forum (CMF) leadership development conference in Arkansas. First UMC Little Rock will host the Nov. 17-19, 2015 event.

CMF is marketed for children’s ministry leaders in large United Methodist churches, but classes will contain relevant information for children’s ministry in all size congregations. Sponsored by United Methodist Discipleship Ministries, the Large Church Initiative and the United Methodist Publishing House, CMF offers opportunities for worship, spiritual renewal, continuing education, fellowship, networking and support.

This year’s theme is Rock On: Renew. Discover. Respond. With more than 100 classes taught by nationally recognized leaders in the fields of spiritual formation, teaching, volunteer recruitment, technology, communication, administration and leadership development, it promises to be the most prestigious continuing education event in the country this year.

Some scholarship assistance will be available from the Conference Council on Children’s Ministry, thanks to support from the United Methodist Foundation of Arkansas.
