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.”
