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 is so incredibly full of heart and grace and compassion. I have never walked away from a conference feeling so encouraged and filled before. The time and energy their staff puts into curating a week to love others did not go unnoticed. They serve their people and community well!

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.
