Missouri Ministry Panel

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
Romans 15:13


ChristFirst Worship is a group of musicians that gather each Sunday to lead worship at Christ First, a Christian Church in North St Louis county. It is their desire to put Christ first in every aspect of their lives. They seek to use the platform God has entrusted to them as an opportunity to lead others, by example, in responding to Him through song, the reading of Scripture, and prayer. Through prayer, intentional planning and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, they desire to create an environment for people to encounter Jesus and to help lead in pouring ourselves out to Him as He continues to fill us up.

MCC kids!

MCC Kids

MCC KIDS provides a safe, fun, and relevant conference that runs right with the rest of the convention.  During all adult main sessions and workshops, our Kids team will have your kids learning, entertained, and loving Jesus. 

Growing spiritually doesn’t have to be an unsolved mystery! Kid detectives will take a journey and dig into a few of Jesus’ parables to solve the mysteries of how to grow their faith, how to care for, serve, and love others. They’ll discover that the answers have been there all along: spend time with God, spend time with others, use your gifts, and share your story.

Epic Photo Scavenger Hunt.jpg

MCC Kids will be lead by our friends at "Stuff You Can Use!" Stuff You Can Use works to help church leaders be more awesome.

MCC Nursery

A safe and secure nursery will be provided for all families during all main and workshop sessions.

Senior Leaders Pre-Conference

The Senior Leaders Pre-Conference is highly practical and relational. We will sit in circles with other leaders in similar situations and navigating similar tensions.
    - Price includes:
          - Thursday Dinner, Thursday evening snacks, Friday Lunch, snacks, drinks
          - All Event Resources



Designed by Senior Leaders for Senior Leaders
Senior Ministers and Senior Executives carry a leadership burden that not everyone understands.

This Pre-conference is an investment into senior leaders to help lift and carry that burden. We have navigated a couple of years of curve balls and now it's time to  lead up to what's next. 
Leadership requires decisions and direction OVER the normal and mundane.

If my church pre-registered do I still need to register?  

Yes, everyone attending needs to register. On the registration form there is a place to mark that your church pre-registered so you

don't need to pay.

Is there something for teenagers? Not specifically, but we are planning in such a way that your teenager will find value in and enjoy the main sessions and workshops.

Why is the first session after dinner?  We wanted to make it easier for families with children to attend the convention without missing content.  By moving the main session, it will allow more travel time after school gets out.

I noticed some new things on the schedule; what are they?


Heritage Celebration:  We will celebrate together the history of the MCC, present our God's Honored Servant award, worship with hymns, and laugh together. This will be an enjoyable afternoon session, especially for those that have been serving in the church or around the convention for a while.


 President's After Party:  Let's have some fun together! Relax, play some games, snacks are on the house. and EVERYONE is invited!

Family Adventure:  Following Jesus and ministry is not done divided up. We will start Saturday morning with our families and  compete together.  You can participate as individual families or as church families.
