Heart of the Child Conference for Children’s Ministry Workers to Be Held at Southwestern Seminary on March 6-7

One of the nation’s top conferences for preschool and children’s workers will be held at Southwestern Seminary in March when hundreds of leaders descend on the campus for the biennial Heart of the Child Conference.

The March 6-7 event in Fort Worth is geared toward those who work with children from birth to sixth grade, although sessions for family ministry have been added to this year’s event. A Korean language track also will be featured.

Between 500 and 800 workers and leaders are expected.

Karen Kennemur, SBTC children’s associate and Southwestern Seminary’s associate professor of children’s ministry, calls it “the best preschool and children’s family conference out there.” She’s been attending for about 15 years.

“It’s a great time to network with children’s ministers from all over the U.S.,” said Kennemur, who is serving on the conference’s leadership team.

The event will feature pre-conference and breakout sessions, as well as four keynote speakers:

David Thomas, a child and family counselor with 20-plus years of experience and the co-author of eight books, including Wild Things: The Art of Nurturing Boys and Are My Kids on Track? The 12 Emotional, Social & Spiritual Milestones Your Child Needs to Reach.

Sissy Goff, a child and family counselor with 25-plus years of experience and the author or co-author of 11 books, including Raising Worry-Free Girls and Braver, Stronger, Smarter and Intentional Parenting: Autopilot Is for Planes.
