Calling all Iowans!

Plans are underway, prayers are focused, and preparations have begun! We're looking forward to another exciting year of children's ministry during our Nebraska state homeschool convention. We're elated with the theme and focus the Lord has laid on our hearts for this year and covet your prayers as we look ahead to April 1-2!

But we're also elated to share with you a new opportunity the Lord has opened this year! Due to an invitation by the NICHE board, we will also be bringing our annual Kid's Conference to Iowa as part of the NICHE [homeschool] conference, June 9-11.

Our theme this year is "The Great Adventure" --

Youth ages 5-12 are invited to enroll in this two-day program as we engage in captivating drama, songs, Scripture memory, object lessons, hands-on projects and games. Students attending the Kid’s Conference will travel back in time to 1856 and follow the adventures of a British family as they embark on an amazing, unexpected journey -- missionaries to a foreign field. They’ll experience the trials, struggles, joys, and victories that accompany a life devoted to Christ -- living out His Great Adventure!

This program should not be viewed as merely child-care. It is intended to deliver a Bible-based character message in a memorable and fun way.

We'll be posting more information as the dates get closer. But right now have a specific need: youth volunteers! [ages 14+] If you have a passion for the Lord and for children ministry, would you consider serving with us during the NICHE Conference?! We will be providing two days of training to equip you for this opportunity.

If you're interested in getting involved, please request an application form by emailing the Children's Conference Committee at:

Contact our family if you have questions!

Thanks for helping us spread the word to the homeschoolers in Iowa. We look forward to what the Lord will do through both the NCHEA and NICHE Conferences and covet your prayers as we prepare for "The Great Adventure!"

"My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth."
1 John 3:18

A special need for youth volunteers...that sounds like such an amazing opportunity! I would love to do it! Living rather far away, maybe it will work next year when I can drive. ;)

I hope and pray that everything goes well!

Annie, I totally think you should use this opportunity. I hope it works out for you! :)
