CMConnect helped us establish an ongoing relationship with another nonprofit in Belize. We were able to jump right in with outreach to children in underprivileged areas without missing a beat! This year will be our third consecutive year working with CMConnect, as it has become a fruitful partnership! <

I was fortunate to be able to meet Michael and the CM team on a Kidsmin Leadership Retreat in Belize. It was phenominal! I gained friendships, inspiration, practical knowledge for Ministry and most of all rest, reflection and relaxation! Everthing was so well organized and the planning was superb! I was even able to go zip-lining (to see things from a new perspective!) I can't wait to attend a conference in the States! I'm sure it will exceed my expectations as well! Thank you Michael and CMConnect!! Your expertise is invaluable!!

I have been to several Children's Ministry seminars, conferences and events. When I was invited to my first CMConnect conference I was expecting the same ol' same ol', but boy was I pleasantly surprised when I saw the number of sessions, the topics were so relevant it was hard to pick from them all. CMConnect offers the sessions on video after the seminar, so I was able to see everything I wanted to! I have never walked away from a conference of any sort feeling so blessed, so educated and so on fire and ready to make a difference!
CMConnect has also kept in touch with me and continually help me grow and stay grounded, all at the same time. This ministry is truly a gift from God!

CMConnect does just that - connects those of us who serve in children’s ministry here in the US and throughout the world. Through online networks,conferences, and training, CMConnect helps all of us help each other, as well as those we serve. I have been a professional in this field for 20 years and CMConnect helps me keep learning, and gives me the opportunity to give others the benefit of my experience. The leadership of the organization are humble, committed, and hardworking. This organization is the best in children’s ministry, in my opinion!

CMConnect is leading the way in getting the local church to think globally, and in helping to provide resources to ministers who need it. The opportunities to serve with them is amazing, and they do a great job of making it easy for you to raise money, and to share your experience with others. Also they do a great job of being transparent with their finances, so you know your money is going to do ministry. Michael Chanley and his team do an amazing job, and I am proud to partner with them in their Ministry.

I was blessed by attending my first (but not last) CMConnect Conference this year. I have never felt so challenged and encouraged at the same time. It was a much needed boost to my system. I pray that my excitement will be contagious with my team at the church I serve at. Michael Chanley and his team not only tell us how much they care for and want to support children's pastors, but they show us over and over again. This speaks volumes about the quality of this organization. Thank you so much for all you do, please keep it up!!

CMConnect is an awesome organization and partner for children's ministers all over. My wife and I attended the CMConference last week and had a great time connecting and learning from others. It is like a family of people to stand alongside you as you work to lead children. Michael Chanley and others involved with this organization have a big heart to help children and those who serve them. Matter of fact, my wife and I consider ourselves part of CMConnect as that is how the organization works...it is about the community that is built among those that become part of it. Thanks for your service to us all in children's ministry!

CMConnect has been a great partner and resource for children's ministry for me. Beyond that they excell at serving others through out the world. They truly want to help the community of children's ministry especially those who struggle with resources. After spending time at the CM Connect Conference you truly are connected to a community of people all working towards the same goal sharing and showing Christ's love to children. One more aspect is their great follow up and follow through on what they say they are going to do.

CMConnect is one of THE best nonprofit organizations I've ever worked with, and I work with a lot. They are not out for money or acclaim or changing the industry or anything like that. They are truly here to serve children's pastors, and their heart is especially for those who are underresourced. CMConference is the best children's ministry conference I have ever attended. Scholarships make it possible for under resourced children's pastors to go. The Discipleship Program is a revolutionary way to improve your ministry, connect with others, and serve in the long hall like Jesus did. I could go on and on about how truly wonderful CMConnect is!

I've had the opportunity to interact with CMConnect through their CM Conference. I've never seen a conference so committed to helping all children's ministers network effectively and attend training affordably. There's a common ground that all are welcomed to and CM's from around the world gather to share, to pray, to worship and to grow together through conversation and connection. It's a true blessing to all who participate!

CMConnect does incredible work serving the global church. One of the ways that they have really impacted me is through their excellent podcast. There is such a shortage of useful and innovative kids ministry training, but they manage to, every week, present something that is useful and applicable for my ministry context. They are truly a unique organization that provides amazing training that is well deserving of your attention and support.

CMConnect is a wonderful ministry to so many. I am a Children's Pastor who has been blessed by the CMConnect conference. Michael and his team are committed to resourcing the under-resourced. They aren't about making money or fame. They are genuine and humble in everything they do. I would definitely recommend donating to this worthy non-profit and attending the CMConnect Conference.

CM Connect is a great organization. They are prolific in equipping people who work with children. They have a lot of online resources that I never even have time to discover, because there are so many. They have an online community you can connect with - for free! They help me best through their podcasts though. I try to listen every week. They recently aired a breakout session from their 2016 CM Conference that has really encouraged me to look outside of our church to minister. The session was entitled Dealing With the Orphan Spirit in Your Church and it was podcast #40. I have listened to it twice now, and plan to listen again until I can sense what we need to do here in the town I live in.

CmConnect is an organization I have loved being a part of. Connecting under-resourced children's workers all around the world to those who are able to provide trainings and curriculum that is Christ-centered is the one thing I admire most about CmConnect. It's an organization that God has used to provide many needs for many people. Most recently, I worked alongside Michael to co-lead a group of 17 people with a heart to serve children on a mission trip to the jungles of Belize. This trip was unique in how we worked alongside a local ministry and the local community in Belize. Michael was adamant about working with the people there, not just for the people. It's been a blessing to serve alongside CmConnect, and I look forward to continue international ministry with them.

CMConnect is one of the best organizations in the field of ministering and training the people who love children. I've been a part of this group for a long time and they never disappoint. Whether it is a hosting a conference, training in other countries, sharing research or just being there when I needed an ear. The feeling of family and the close connections within the organization is wonderful. I always feel like I'm at a family reunion of sorts when I attend a CMConncect event.

Love, love, love this organization. It is a rare blend of professionalism and heart-felt community.

I was first introduced to CMCONNECT about 2 years ago. I was so impressed by how generous they are. They hosted a conference unlike any I had ever been to before. They also had a generous scholarship program so everyone who wanted to, could attend. They constantly search out those in need; whether the need be physical, spiritual, or educational, the people of CMCONNECT pour their hearts and lives into serving others. This is a ministry that truly models Christ.

I had the wonderful opportunity to work with CMConnect in Rwanda. It was amazing to witness their passion for the mission God has planned for them and their absolute love for the people they meet along the way. If only we all had this ability – to love unconditionally and to respect others as Jesus would do – this world would be a much better place. I left Rwanda feeling like I had made lifelong friends! Thank you, Michael Chanley and Trevor Adams for all that you do for God’s children.
