One of the best ways to learn is to put a handful of practitioners together to collaborate and see what happens. Kid Min Leadership Summit, sponsored by CE National, is a place for children’s ministry leaders to engage in the greatest challenges and opportunities of ministry.
Gather together with other children’s ministry leaders to share best practices, explore innovative ideas, and engage visionary leadership. The kids and families in our communities are worth our collective best.
Ted Bryant and Jon Rauch are excited to be planning and leading this day of learning. It will be held Thursday, February 23, 2017, from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., at Grace Community Church, 20076 County Road 36, Goshen, Ind. The cost for the day and lunch is $25. Space is limited.
Ted’s passion for engaging the whole family, from kids through emerging adults, as well as seeing healthy marriages grow, drives his work as the Pastor of Family Ministry at Granger Community Church in Granger, Ind.
His eleven years of ministry both as a professor at Bethel College and as a pastor has focused on creating support to build healthy families in the face of the tremendous pressures and complexities that culture has introduced into family life.
Ted lives in South Bend, Ind,, with his wife, Angela, and their six kids (who range in age from four to twelve).
Jon is the Family and Discipleship Pastor at Grace Community Church in Goshen, Ind. (Jim Brown, senior pastor). He has a heart for reaching young people outside of the church and helping young people inside the church move forward in their faith.
Before coming on staff at GCC in 2005, Jon was the Director of the Urban Hope Training Center in Philadelphia, an inner-city ministry designed to plant churches targeting young people. Jon has been married to Tara since 1999, and they love their 4 children: Elli, Ethan, Elisha, and Emery. They love serving Jesus and His church. When they aren’t doing that or chasing their kids, they enjoy being together.
