Elementary schools are populated with Gen Alpha children. They are projected to be the largest generation in history. They are growing up in a post-Christian culture. The church must recognize the urgent need and challenge of meeting our newest generation’s spiritual needs. Together we must understand the times and know what to do. It’s time to go Back to School!

WHO's the conference for?

Our Children’s Ministry Conference is for anyone who is interested in understanding and reaching Gen Alpha with the Good News of Jesus. Whether you’re an experienced volunteer or a new comer to children’s ministry, this conference is for you. Back to School is great for improving the children’s ministry of your home church or to enrich your Daycare program. If you’re interest is seeing children know Jesus register now and plan to join us!

WHO are the Teachers?

Our Instructors includes our CEF Dallas Team with a combined experience of over 100 years. And, we are excited to have Faith Dugan, of CEF’s Children’s Ministry Institute, join us and bring her over 45 years of experience to Dallas.

WHAT's it all about?

CEF has been training adults and youth to share the Gospel with and disciple children since 1937. This conference serves the vital need to bring the Good News of Jesus to the newest generation – Gen Alpha (born after 2010). You will leave being informed about Gen Alpha and equipped to be effective in reaching Gen Alpha children for Christ.

WHY should I attend?

The most important reason to attend is because loves all children and wants us to bring children to him (Matthrew 19:14). More Gospel workers are needed to reach and disciple Gen Alpha children, right here in North Texas. Two tracks are offered based on your experience level. Select which one is right for you. If you are new to Child Evangelism, the novice track will equip you and build your confidence for evangelizing children. If you are an experienced volunteer, we have a track to help you improve your current ministry in Good News Clubs or Good News Parties. DOWNLOAD the schedule below to learn more.

Faith Dugan has served full time with Child Evangelism Fellowship® (CEF) since 1989. For over 26 years, she worked with CEF of Greater New York City, serving as the Brooklyn Ministries Coordinator and later as the Director of Training for the Greater New York City area. Currently, she is a Leadership Training Instructor at the Children’s Ministries Institute (CMI) in Warrenton, MO, and also serves as the CMI Online Director. Faith is pursuing a Doctorate in Education through Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Her passion lies in ministry to Generation Alpha, recognizing the need to adapt communication methods to reach this unchurched generation with the Gospel of Christ. Only a very small percent of children today will grow up with a Biblical worldview, making it essential for those who minister to children to understand the culture of our newst generation.
