How much does the seminar cost?

The cost of the seminar is being covered by First Baptist Church, so it is FREE to you! We will accept any donations by those appreciative for the seminar, but none is expected


What should I plan about doing about lunch?

We will serve you lunch for free, and will plan on having some gluten-free items for those who need it. Please indicate that you are gluten-intolerant when you register. Snacks and beverages will also be provided in between sessions.

Are children invited to come?

Though the seminar is for children's workers, we will not have special services, including nursery, for children. Any older children (teens?) working with children are encouraged to come, but would not have a session just for them.
