The Children’s Leadership Conference is the premier annual training event for children’s leaders in Alberta. This first-class event you will leave inspired, encouraged, and equipped to continue in your challenging, yet rewarding, call of leading children.
YOUTH AGES 12-17
Time For All Access
If you’re between the age of 12-17 and you love working in your church or community to help lead kids closer to Christ, then we want to see you at Upswing! New this year, the entire Upswing conference is available to you, so you can choose from all of the workshops and have access to the full conference schedule just like everyone else.
KIDS IN MINISTRY
A Special Announcement
You may have also noticed that Kids in Ministry has “flown the coop”! Just like owlets, who have to one day spread their wings and fly away from the nest, Kids in Ministry is taking flight! We are no longer including programming for children under the age of 12, but watch for regional Kids in Ministry events coming in the near future to a community near you.
Upswing Conference exists to serve you
Upswing Ministries exists to serve and honor those who believe children are a gift from God and have devoted their lives to leading, teaching, mentoring and guiding them. Our goal is to train, equip, support and encourage leaders by bringing together gifted and knowledgeable presenters who have the same passion to reach children with the love of Christ. (Philippians 3:12-14)
“I like to think about the family of God as a patch-work quilt. Each piece is unique with its patterns and design and can be embellished or simply embroidered to reflect the distinctness of each square. Yet, we are still cut from the same cloth and when we are stitched together with the power of the Holy Spirit we become a covering of comfort, warmth and love. Upswing 2016 is to remind you of who you are in this family. I am not just talking about your leadership skills, I mean who you REALLY are! It is the innermost being God created inside that makes you a great leader. If you miss Upswing 2016, you’ll be a missing piece of our “Community Quilt” and quite honestly, we need you; your gifts; and your passion; to show others there is room in the family for everyone who will believe (John 1:12).”
