Elevate exists to serve children, preteen and family ministry leaders by inspiring and encouraging them spiritually, equipping them practically and connecting them relationally so that they may strategically influence kids to expand God’s kingdom. Finally, at Elevate we create an environment where each leader:

  • encounters the presence of God and the power of the Holy Spirit
  • feels valued and honoured
  • is better equipped to serve children and preteens
  • is challenged and resourced to look at ministry with a fresh perspective
  • has the opportunity to network, share their ideas and experiences with others
  • creates unforgettable memories

You are the mighty ones. The Old Testament tells us of David's "mighty men," his most trusted warriors who were sent on secret missions the king ascribed utmost importance to. God has called you to be His warriors, His special agents to take new frontiers, to win the hearts of children. In the New Testament, Jesus demonstrates for us that the mission of utmost importance to the King is winning the hearts of young ones. That is your mission. You the "The Mighty Ones" of the King.




TRACK 1 : Plan to Protect Focus

Orientation & Certification - 3 HOURS

One of the first steps in protecting your organization is through abuse prevention training. Our three-hour Plan to Protect® Orientation training will equip you and your team to recognize the different types of abuse as well as implement and maintain policies and procedures to protect vulnerable persons in your organization and community. Plan to Protect® Orientation training satisfies insurance requirements for initial abuse protection training*, helps to remove obstacles to organizational accountability, and keeps both caregivers and vulnerable individuals safe.

TRACK 2 : Special Needs Focus

Shepherding Kids with ADHD - 1.5 hours

Gain an understanding of the biology of AD/HD, and load up on tools and ideas you can try tomorrow that will equip you to lead each child to grow in their faith.

Understanding God's Wonderful Spectrum in Kids with Autism - 1.5 hours

With 1 in 68 children being diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), it is likely that your church already includes someone with ASD.

Using six key areas of difference, this session will take several best practices in special education and apply them to a church setting. Leave with a toolbox full of new ideas to try right away!

Are you looking for a family ministry strategy? Come explore the 7 Family Ministry Essentials and discover practical tools to empower families to take spiritual leadership in the home, teach Scripture as the ultimate authority of truth, and understand the role of the Holy Spirit's power to teach and transform.

Volunteer Revolution -1.5 hours

We know that the future of a church is directly tied to its ability to attract, equip, and unleash the God-given potential of volunteers. Yet, it is one of a leader’s biggest challenge. Leaders often feel that there are not enough people to do the things they want to do. What if the God who inspired the vision would also provide the “man power” to see it fulfilled? In this session, Caroline Durocher-Bergeron will share practical ways to recruit, train, encourage and retain those in your church to create a volunteer revolution.
