In 1994, Pastor Larry Enterline began coordinating Children’s Ministry Conferences at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa to help equip and encourage teachers, leaders, and pastors who minister to children. Since that time, these annual conferences have also been held at Calvary Chapel Downey, Horizon Christian Fellowship in Indianapolis, Calvary Chapel Bible Fellowship in Temecula, Revival Christian Fellowship in Menifee, and Calvary Chapel Golden Springs in Diamond Bar. Calvary Curriculum’s upcoming 2023 Children’s Ministry Conference will again be held at Calvary Chapel Golden Springs in Diamond Bar, CA (see map below).
This Children’s Ministry Conference is a ministry of Calvary Curriculum which is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Calvary Curriculum equips those who minister to children throughout the world by providing Bible curriculum for Preschool through Middle School aged children and trainings for anyone involved with ministering to them. For more information about Calvary Curriculum such as our statement of faith and vision for the ministry, please visit www.calvarycurriculum.com.
