This popular event features workshops, networking, lunch, and shopping opportunities for all those who work with children, youth, and family ministries. 

The keynote speaker on Friday (7-9 p.m.) is Leanne Hadley, who will talk about children and trauma. 
In Leanne's own words: "I believe that I was created to work with children. I have spent my entire life and career spending time with and learning from kids. I am an expert on the spiritual lives of children and write, consult, mentor, and teach groups and organizations to meet the needs of the children they work with. This world has become a difficult place for kids! They face divorce, bullying, school shootings, social media issues, death of loved ones, deployment of a parent, and the list could go on and on. We need to help kids learn to cope, heal, and navigate this world. I am here to help. I graduated from Miami University, Oxford, Ohio where I received my B.A. and I earned both my M.Div. and D.Min. degrees from United Theological Seminary. My doctoral work focused on designing a model of healing for children. I am an ordained minister in the United Methodist Church and was the founder of a non-profit, First Steps Spirituality Center."
