2017 Children’s Ministry Conference

Go Tell The World - Inspiring Kids with the Book of Acts

The risen Lord Jesus, the coming of the Holy Spirit, the unstoppable spread of the gospel, the growth of the suffering and persevering church – the Book of Acts is full of wonder and challenge to share with our kids.

How do we explain Pentecost? What should we say about persecution? How can we excite them about world mission?

The SMBC 2017 Children's Ministry Conference looked at ways to bring the Book of Acts alive for kids – to give them the assurance and the vision to go tell the world!
