Conference Details

Our mission is to foster research and examine theory related to children's spiritual characteristics, growth, and experiences. Presenters and those who attend represent a wide variety of theological and denominational backgrounds. We dialogue with one another, discuss theory, and share research related to children's spiritual development. The goals of the conference include:

  1. Networking with Christians who are currently conducting research and who are writing on children's spiritual development and spiritual formation
  2. Providing a forum for the integration of biblical, theological, and social science perspectives on children's spiritual experiences, development, and formation
  3. Exploring innovative approaches to children's ministry and providing encouragement
