What is Fusion Children's Leadership Conference?                  
Fusion Children's Leadership Conference is an environment designed for lay workers, part-time children's pastors, and full-time children's pastors to come together for a renewing time of great worship, breakout sessions, and inspirational messages. This event is a great way to network with other children's workers and to make new friends in the wonderful world of children's ministry!
Take advantage of this strategic opportunity. Fusion is a conference where Children's Leaders, Children's Pastors, and Volunteers come together to be encouraged, challenged, and refreshed. In this type of environment, Leaders are able to connect with others that share the same passion for ministry, yet deal with the same challenges. Leaders leave excited about serving in their churches and with the desire to bring others around them.


Stone Church's Cafe will be open throughout the weekend. Be sure to check out the vendor tables in the lobby!
