Is childcare available?

  • There is NO childcare provided at the conference. 
  • We ask that children under 6 not attend the breakout sessions, as it has caused distraction in the past. Infants are welcome to be held by parents. 
  • We do have nursing rooms and cry rooms near the main auditorium. 
  • We understand that not providing childcare makes it difficult for people with children to attend. We have pursued this opportunity many times, but due to legal and logistical issues, we have not been able to make it work. We apologize for the inconvenience this causes.
  • We also cannot allow groups to use nursery/children's ministry space for childcare purposes. This includes if you opt to bring your own childcare. Children will need to remain in company of their parent(s) while at the conference. Thank you for your understanding.
