I have recently connected with CMConnect and Michael Chanley. My interactions have been wonderful. All of my questions have been answered in a timely manner. I am very much looking forward to attending their conference later this spring. The community that I am a part of in connection with CMConnect is a positive, uplifting and Christ-centered place to engage other leaders in children's ministry. I'm glad to have found this organization.

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 love the heart and soul of CM Connect! When you look at Christ's teaching to take care of the least of these and His heart for children, it is easy to see how CM Connect's vision, values and goals reflect those of Christ. I love that they intentionally look for other ministries with which to partner to impact the lives of children around the globe in tangible ways! - Jen Dupin, Elevate Dance Ministry

The thing that I love most about CMConnect is that they really care about people! Their end goal is simple. To connect people with others to share resources, provide training and build relationships across the world. Their heart and their passion for equipping people to share the gospel of Jesus is evident in everything that they do. I am so thankful that I found this group! I have made so many new friends and their wealth of knowledge and expertise has been such a great blessing to me in my ministry.

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!

Great organization to work with. Very personal and supportive of it's people. Have worked with other organizations that leave you to be and don't offer much help to be successful. CM Connect wants it's partners to succeed and be successful in the mission God's given them. Looking forward to working with them for many years to come.

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 a great ministry that I have been privileged to be served by, and am now honored to be part of their team. I love their heart for children and their desire for all kids to come to know God through connecting, serving, and advancing children's workers around the world. They offer several different training opportunities throughout the year and great friendships are built through those trainings.

CMConnect is making a difference around the world! Its nice to know that the heart of this organization is to make a difference by connecting leaders all around the world and by doing so, making ministry to children a so much more effective.
The training it provides allows all leaders regardless of location, to learn and grow so they can help others.
I've been a part of the conference here in the states and part of the network for many years and I have grown so much.

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.

CMConnect does a remarkable job of serving not selling our children's ministers, especially smaller churches. And providing resources, and knowledge from like minded experienced children's pastors! I highly recommend you take advantage of this great resource.

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!
