Can't Attend CPC? How About Online?

Attend CPC in your PJ's!

One of the best investments you can make in your children’s ministry as well as your own personal professional development is to attend a Children’s Pastors Conference – but perhaps your church doesn’t have the budget for it, or you did something different this year for training. Well, I’ve got GREAT NEWS for you! You can still benefit from the amazing training that takes place at a CPC conference right from your computer!

That’s right – you can enjoy not one, not two, not three, but FOUR conferences without leaving home. Enjoy every general session from CPC, CM Leaders, CPC 2-Day, and the new Bridge Conference during INCM’s WEB WEEK

So, watch in your pajamas from home, OR treat your entire team to a virtual conference for the same low price! Yes, you read that right, the Group Rate is the same as the Individual Rate, so you can easily plan a a group conference experience for your own leaders and volunteers who otherwise might not be able to travel to a conference.

Learn more about INCM WEB WEEK! I’ll be hosting parts of the conference, so I hope to connect with you during this amazing event!
