The Only Event Exclusively Focused On Middle School Ministry

Is it a conference for middle school youth workers?


Is it a retreat for middle school youth workers?

Somewhat, but more like a conference

We have a hard time describing the Middle School Ministry Campference, because any short description doesn’t completely capture the vibe that is so amazing about this event. Really, it’s a Tribal Gathering for middle school and junior high youth workers.

Sure, we’ll have seminars and focused conversations lead by some of the leading practitioners in our field. But the primary value of the weekend is that we’re all together, playing, talking, eating, dreaming, worshipping. You won’t just sit in a seminar with an expert: you’ll have a meal with her or go zip-lining with him. And you’ll find plenty of “experts” who, just like you, are the other attendees. Because everyone has a voice at the Campference.


Campference isn't really about the speakers. But here's a few of the many who will be there.
