In 2010, when I was a Children’s Minister in Indiana, I learned about an amazing conference happening in Lexington. It was then called the National Missionary Conference. I quickly made plans to bring our elementary group of “Truth Travelers” to the conference. A few months later plans had changed and our family would be moving to Lexington. Soon, an opportunity opened to serve on the children’s team for this special conference that was being renamed as the International Conference on Missions. Together, our team partnered with other churches in the area to plan a great weekend for the kids coming from all over the world with their parents. Many of our families took advantage of this experience and learned great things about what God is doing through our brotherhood in the area of missions.
Earlier this year, I was asked to lead the children’s team for the ICOM Kids area when the conference returned to Lexington in November 2016. It has been a great journey this year to work with, brainstorm, dream, and encourage other childrens ministries in the area. Together our TCCC team is partnering with at least seven other ministries in Lexington to make this an unbelievable experience for your children. We scheduled a young and exciting worship leader, began building a GLOBAL VILLAGE experience for your child to discover 8 very different locations, and ordered passports for each child! As the time gets closer we continue to think through every detail of this experience at Rupp Arena! It will truly be a weekend to remember as the seeds of serving globally are planted deep into each child’s heart!
