ReFRESH 2020 was super awesome. There were 220 delegates from Southern Africa. We had 13 speakers with over 100 years of ministry experience among them.
An interesting statistic was “ about 45% of the delegates had never attended any workshop or conference for Children and Youth ministry before! It was an exciting experience!
We had children from New Covenant Church, Bryanston lead us in astounding and energetic praise and worship session with a super cool flash mob! This was followed by a beautiful opening charge led by Revd Colette & Wayne Saldanha on “Growth in Christ”. Then Dr John Mphaphuli gave an astounding keynote note address on: “Challenges of multi-culturism in children and youth ministry in South Africa”. Our breakaway sessions were facilitated by Liana Da Fonseca, Piet Trichardt, Adrian Trapani, Mwewa Kanyanga, Darren Mortimer, Nicole Young, Hayley Walker, Mo Tshuli and Bolanle Enang. After lunch, we had a super time at the Box-It-Time where questions and answers were taken. Yvonne May led us in a powerful praise and worship session accompanied by Dayo Eseyin. The conference ended with a closing charge by Bolanle Enang which is titled “Scars in Service”. The conference ended in ministrations and prayers for each other.
Everyone left with a deep sense of God’s presence and refreshing by the Holy Spirit
We are joyfully expectant at the upcoming ReFRESH 2019. (Acts 3:20 – that times of refreshing may come from God’s Presence)
This conference is open to anybody who is interested in taking God’s word to the world through our children. Impact your ministry by learning from passionate and experienced speakers!
Let God minister to the head, heart and hands of every children and youth ministry workers. You will walk away with…
Refreshed heart | Knowledgeable head | Equipped hands
Catch Up 2018
Catch Up 2018 was an electric and anointed conference. We had a great number of people from different walks of life. Children’s ministry workers and volunteers from far and wide gained new insights from our seasoned speakers. GracePoint Church Glenferness Midrand was a powerful team to work with. They gave us a rock-solid support base for this conference.
Delegates at Catch Up left with new friends, happy hearts, stomach full of delicious refreshments and revived souls for the work of ministry ahead!
What People Say
“One of the best pieces of advice any one gave me as I walked green-eyed into my role as children’s pastor of St Stephen’s Anglican Church, Sunninghill was to attend the CMCSA. Craig Rens introduced me to Mandie Agrella who then introduced me both to this conference and iVangeli Curriculum.
That’s one of the most divine moments of my life.
IT’S THE UNIVERSITY for children’s ministry in Africa! You have to attend it to feel it. This one day event is EPIC…!
Everything, I mean everything changed for me that day. I walked into the conference that March morning in 2010 and my life transformed. CMCSA is such a power packed, energizing, almost surreal experience. I have both attended and spoken at this conference and it is mind blowing! Lisa Ekman is truly led by the Lord to bring the most resourceful local and international speakers to equip us annually as Sunday school teachers.
It is greater value than we pay for. Great breakaway sessions, AMAZING general sessions, networking opportunities. It is also the perfect shopping spot for materials for your children’s church: curriculum, children’s bibles, music, games…etc
Book yourself in every first or second weekend in March.”
