BGMC “Shake it Up” Conference: Never before has BGMC planned for such a gathering of church BGMC directors, children’s pastors and leaders to hear reports from our missionaries around the globe. This event will be a time of rekindling the missions spirit in ourselves and within the children we minister to. Please make every effort to come, hear, learn, cry, pray, and praise.
The BGMC "Shake It Up!" conference is part of the North America Children's Ministries Conference, hosted by the national Children's Ministries Agency in partnership with the National Girls Ministries conference.
In the 10 years since the Boyds have led BGMC, this is the first BGMC conference of this magnitude. This event is designed for the BGMC director of every church, as well as the children's pastor and every teacher who is passionate about teaching kids to reach the world.
The event will begin with a Thursday evening BGMC banquet honoring the top BGMC-giving churches across the nation. The banquet will be attended by children's pastors, leaders, and world missionaries to honor churches for their outstanding growth in giving and in number of children participating in BGMC.
Workshops will be presented during the March 1-4 NACMC, and then a variety of workshops and breakouts will be held on March 5. These include three general sessions on March 5 with the following emphases:
Introduce the new "Shake It Up!" theme of BGMC, along with numerous new BGMC activities
Testimonies from missionaries all over the world
"Pray for the World" prayer focus (Friday evening)
General sessions and workshops include current world missions reports, testimonies of how God is moving around the world, and cutting-edge ways to involve kids in missions, school evangelism, and connecting with God.
Other workshops will cover topics such as building a heart of compassion in kids, "Pray, Give, and Go," BGMC's E-LIFE missionary, "Shake It Up!" resources and missions focus, and creative ways to involve kids in giving of time, talent, and offerings to missions.
