National Christian Children Ministry Conference 2017: Whose Child is This?

The Singapore Centre for Global Missions is glad to announce that along with our partners, TRAC Board of Children Ministry, the 4/14 Window Movement and the Diocese of Singapore Mission Board, we are organizing the National Christian Children Ministry Conference 2017 with the theme “Whose Child Is This?”. The 2-Day 1-Night Conference seeks to spotlight the importance of reaching and raising children as leaders for the next generation, both in Singapore and beyond our shores.

The Conference will begin with an opening night coinciding with the SCGM Annual Lecture on 27 April 2017 delivered by Dr Bambang Budijanto, Chairman of 4/14 Window Global Steering Committee. Mark McClendon, Regional Director of CBN Southeast Asia/South Korea and a key leader in the 4/14 Window movement will speak on the challenges reaching and raising children in the digital age where virtual reality will become a present reality. We will learn together with panel discussions including panelists from Singapore and take time for retreat to refresh our Children Ministry leaders and workers. We pray that we will be reminded and challenged that every child is God’s child and we can help reach and raise and release God’s children in His love.
