Coffee Break and Story Hour Leaders: Let's Meet at Inspire 2017!


Come join the fun! Inspire is a new kind of gathering where ministry leaders of all kinds will meet together for shared learning, to swap ideas and be inspired. Coffee Break small group leaders will learn alongside church planters and Story Hour leaders alongside campus ministry leaders. Imagine the conversations!

The flexible format will allow your group to create your own learning event based on the needs and context of your ministry. Three breakouts have been specifically designed for small group Bible discovery and you can find them on the Inspire website under under the Sessions tab (session numbers are 35, 36 and 37) or listed below: 

  • Small Group Mechanics, Presenter: Sam Huizenga
  • Engaging Scripture for Greatest Impact, Presenter Marian Lensink
  • From Indonesia to Iowa: How Bible Discovery Translates, Presenters: Diane Averill and Leadership Panel

In addition, watch for a new breakout session aimed at preschool leaders to be listed shortly! 

The large group gatherings will top off breakout learning. The main gathering speakers—Ann Voskamp, Richard Mouw, Harvey Carry, Ruth Padilla DeBorst—will have great insights for all of us. You won’t want to miss this!

In addition, Coffee Break and Story Hour leaders will have a few fun ways to connect. Coffee Break Ministry leaders are invited to a “Sticky Gathering” on Thursday night to meet each other, have great conversations, and maybe even win a door prize. There will be lots of ways to connect throughout the event.

Let's Discuss…

We love your comments! Thanks for your help upholding the Community Guidelines to make this an encouraging and respectful community for everyone.

I am a Coffee Break Co-ordinator from Neerlandia Alberta and have registered for Inspire.  I would like to fly to London (direct - as there is no direct flight to detriot from edmonton.)  I am wondering if there are any women from London going to inspire that would consider giving me a ride.
