In only a few short weeks, we are gathering for an amazing day of equipping and connecting at this year's Awana Ministry Conference. We plan to have our breakouts and schedule out by August 7th so that you can have a couple of weeks to plan your day.

We have a phenomenal Keynote Speaker, Andrew Albritton, who is an Awana Alum and now a professor at Missouri State University and Founder/Consultant of Conversation Consulting. He is passionate about helping people build better communication practices in their churches, organizations, and teams.

Exciting breakouts include: Making Resilient Disciples In Your Church; Building Bridges, Not Ladders: Helping Students Stay Connected From Kids Ministry to Student Ministry AND From Student Ministry to College Ministry; Behind the Scenes of Brite*: Awana's new digital curriculum; Belonging: Game Time and Theme Nights to Keep Kids Engaged; Helping Children Navigate Difficulties in Small Group Time; and Many More geared toward your area of ministry.
