Kidsong, Masterclasses & More!

Jun 10 2014

Hillsong Conference offers perhaps the single largest opportunity we have as a Church to build into the lives of kids for an extended period of time. Hundreds upon hundreds of children from 1-12 years old for almost 5 days of ministry and fun – compare that with the 90 minutes we get during a weekend service!

A week at Kidsong gives us more time with our kids than a year at Church. The space we get to build friendship and connect them with a big God cannot be overestimated!

KIDSONG

Kidsong is the children’s conference for ages 0-12. Think of it as three separate experiences of Hillsong Conference (hillsongconference.com). First of all are our Parenting Rooms for 0-3 year olds, with rooms for caregivers that help them connect with what is going on in Conference through screens and beautiful suites that help them look after their little ones.

Then we have what we call Kidsong Jr. which is for 3-7 year olds (up to grade 2 at school). Days and nights of fun and faith that connect them with characters like Max and Melody, VeggieTales, Funny Man Dan and a group leader who is their guide through Conference. At the top end we have Kidsong which is for 8-12 year olds (Grade 3-6). As the more mature of our kids we really take the time to get into real world situations and circumstances, connecting the theme with their everyday lives.

What parents need and what the Church is so good at, is providing another voice in the lives of their kids that backs up the understanding of God they are developing in their children.

Deuteronomy 6:6-8 “The commandments I give you today must be in your hearts. Make sure your children learn them. Talk about them when you are at home. Talk about them when you walk along the road. Speak about them when you go to bed. And speak about them when you get up…” [and talk about them at Church, with your leaders and when you get to Kidsong talk about them!]

Kidsong may not be mentioned in the Bible, but the Church is. And where two or three are gathered together in the name of Jesus, there goes the Church!

MASTERCLASSES

We are also privileged to gather in the leadership stream with children’s leaders and pastors from all over the world and present two sessions that we believe will help churches.

The first session is ‘Layering Leadership’ with Frank Bealer, the Family Pastor at Elevation Church overseeing a rapidly expanding ministry to kids and families in Charlotte, North Carolina. He is going to be talking about attracting layers of high capacity leaders to your kids ministry.

And the second session which has proven to be very popular is ‘Hillsong Kids Live’ – our team is presenting a full weekend service to our delegates and unpacking just what goes into creating a service for kids that will reach them where they are at. We are going into great detail with the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of Hillsong Kids to show just what makes us tick!
