Youth tracks

The Encounter Conference Youth Tracks help participants claim their identity as children of God. They will be led through powerful activations, taught how to hear God’s voice, and empowered to use the supernatural gifts they were given at Baptism. We want the youth of the church to see God’s love made manifest through signs and wonders and know they do not have a mini-Holy Spirit. God wants to love them and love through them.

Kids Track
kindergarden – 4th grade

**Led by Kids on Fire Ministries

The Encounter Conference Kids Track happens during the general sessions of the Conference and provides an environment of child-like worship and freedom. We have gathered some of the best children and family ministers in the Church to present dynamic sessions that will truly lead your children to encounter the King of Kings in a profound way. Our kids do not have a mini Holy Spirit, and Jesus was very clear that the Kingdom belongs to them.

The Kids track will provide a safe pastoral environment for our kids to Encounter Jesus and learn to minister in the power and love of the Holy Spirit. Through sessions that incorporate worship, themed games, presentations and activations of spiritual gifts, the Encounter Conference Kids track provides a powerful encounter with the Lord for your child!

Kids track faq’s

Do I need to bring the QR code with me to the conference?

Yes. In an effort to help keep your child as safe as possible, as well as to ensure an efficient check-in and check-out process you will need access to the QR code on your registration confirmation. The QR code can either be printed out or shown on a mobile device. The only way you will be able to access the QR code is by completing the required medical form. You can do this by selecting the link on the registration confirmation page.

How do I find my child’s QR code?

Your child’s QR code will appear on the confirmation page, only after submitting the required medical form.

If my child does not want to attend a session of the their Youth Track, are they allowed to attend the main conference with me?

While it is not a hard and fast requirement, we highly recommend that all children present who are in grades K-4 attend the Encounter Kids Track, grades 5-8 attend the Middle School Track, and grades 9-12 attend the High School Track. That way, both adults and children/teens receive content customized for them. Please see the links above for more information. Note: If children ages 6 -18 do attend the regular conference with you, they must be registered with the appropriate Youth Track ticket and simply choose from the drop-down list under the ticket types that they will not need to be assigned to a small group.

Do I need to check my child in and out of each session?

Yes. This policy is in place to keep your child as safe as possible during the Encounter Conference. No child will be dismissed without a parent / guardian present.

Can I join my child during the Kids Track Sessions?

You are able to enter the Kids Track area to check your child in and out of each session. However, we ask that you not remain in the Kids Track area during sessions as it can be distracting to the participants.
