Our most asked question… “Are you still having the conference?”
And the answer is… “YES… and we very much look forward to seeing you there.”
~ Pastor Larry & Pastor Matt
In the early 1990’s, 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 2021 Children’s Ministry Conference will again be held at Calvary Chapel Golden Springs in Diamond Bar, CA (see map below). This year marks the 24th annual conference.
At the 2020 conference we were blessed to fellowship with 1,000 attendees representing over 200 churches within the Body of Christ.
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.
Join us for this two-day conference in February where we will gather together as the Body of Christ to be encouraged, challenged, and equipped for the ministry of declaring the truth of the Word of God to our children and youth. You will have the opportunity to attend workshops that will strengthen you in evangelizing and discipling children and youth in settings such as within the church, through outreach, in your own home, and wherever else you might minister to them.
It is IMPORTANT for you to know that there will be a few changes regarding the workshops offered at the 2021 conference. At this year’s conference we will not be offering Spanish workshops or translations. And along with the many training workshops regarding Children’s Ministry, there will be an added At-Home track, and for the second year in a row, a Youth Ministry track.
During the conference you will be able to attend 7 workshop sessions from a choice of over 95+ English workshops. At this year’s conference we will not be offering Spanish workshops. On Friday you will be able to attend 3 workshop sessions. On Saturday you will be able to attend 4 workshop sessions.

Frequently Asked Questions
If there is another shelter in place order for California in February 2021 and we are forced to cancel the Children’s Ministry Conference we will be reimbursing the tickets in the weeks following the cancellation. But, because there are transaction fees associated with each ticket sale which we cover on the back end, about 15% will not be refunded for each ticket which will allow us to cover the cancellation expenses.
Our prayer is this does not happen and we have an awesome conference once again. 🙂
