Children's Spirituality Summit 2020-Postponed

Monday, June 8, 2020 3:00 PM-Wednesday, June 10, 2020 1:00 PM

Lipscomb University, Nashville, TN

After much prayer and consideration, the board for the Children's Spirituality Summit has made the decision to postpone the 2020 Summit which had been scheduled for June 8-10, 2020 at Lipscomb University.

We are currently in the process of working out logistics on how to proceed from here. Our hope is to hold the Summit in the summer of 2021, and we are also discussing the possibility of offering a short online conference in the fall of 2020. 

We apologize for any inconvenience these changes may cause. In the meantime, we are praying that each one of our participants stays healthy and that God's peace would meet you in this season. 

Please stay connected with us by following our Facebook and Instagram pages, as well as staying in dialog with us through the Forum. We will continue to post regular Forums to serve our Children's Spirituality community during this time.
We look forward to seeing you in 2021!! Watch for an announcement! 



The Children’s Spirituality Summit brings together Children’s ministers, developmental psychologists, spiritual formation leaders, lay leaders, pastors, teachers, sociologists, parents, and theologians from a broad spectrum of Christian traditions to collectively explore children’s spiritual formation.

Our keynote speakers bring a wealth of knowledge and experience in the area of children’s spirituality and will challenge us to engage children in our homes, in our churches, and in our communities.This Summit offers dozens of informative and inspiring workshops, papers, and ministry models presented by participants like you! We’re excited to see new faces and hear fresh ideas.

Registration is now available through Eventbrite. Early bird registration will take place Jan. 1 through Feb. 29. Regular pricing will take place from March 1 through May 30. Prices increase May 31 to June 8. (Limited scholarships will also be available to eligible participants.)
