I am delighted to call your attention to Group Publishing’s brand new KidMin Conference! On December 1, 2010, their website will give full details. But let me give you an insider tip to save the date now. October 7-10, 2011. Chicago. An unconventional conference for children’s ministry. If you are a twitter user, remember the hashtag #kidmin11. You will be seeing it a lot. Having attended the reGroup conference a year ago, and other regional Group conferences, I can tell you that everything Group does is consistently characterized by quality, love and devotion to God, professionalism, and that extra-special personal touch which makes them stand out as champions for children’s ministry and those who minister to kids. Make plans to be there. The resulting smiles on your faces is all the thanks I need.
