a day of training & renewal for children's ministry teams | March 3, 2018 | Hampden, MA


From New England. For New England.

Built from the Ground Up for New England Churches

At the very heart of Lead Kids is the local church. We are a place where small churches matter. We are a place where volunteers are treasured. We are growing together with a shared passion to serve children!

Great Group Gatherings

We have three main sessions where we gather as the army of servants for worship and the Word. Experience the richness of something that so often Children’s workers for-go on a weekly basis, extended time in corporate worship!


You will hear from fellow travelers working in the local church to make much of Jesus. This is NOT a team of “experts” flown in from the Bible-belt to tell tiny churches how ministry should be done. We are a community of dedicated local-church leaders who have deep roots in real ministry in the greater New England area.

Choose Your Own Adventure

We offer a surprising variety of breakout sessions that we call “Labs.” You will pre-register for a customized experience at Lead Kids. Labs are led by a fantastic team of fellow church workers.

An Unmatched Value

New Englander’s love a deal and Lead Kids is an incredible value. Your team has limited time and resources and we designed the schedule and cost to work for you.


From the team behind Simply Worship

In 2012 we started a small one day event for worship and tech teams called Simply Worship. Today Simply Worship gathers over 125 churches and 700+ church workers annually. Out of that movement a group of Children’s Ministry leaders approached us with the idea that together we developed into Lead Kids.
