Inclusion Fusion will be different…and hopefully, better than any other ministry conference you’ve ever done, either over the web, or where everyone’s physically present in the same facility.
We’ve partnered with the folks from Pajama Conference to put on Inclusion Fusion. Pajama Conference is a very appropriate name for their organization…if you so choose you can literally attend this entire conference in your pajamas.
Anyone who registers for the Web Summit will be able to access any presentation during Inclusion Fusion at any time during the conference. Each of the presentations has been video-recorded in advance. While many of our presenters will be available at designated times during the conference for live chats, their presentations will be available 24-7 during the three days of the conference. The advantages to such an approach are obvious…
You can get whatever content you want whenever you’re available. If you want to see Amy Dolan’s or Shannon Dingle’s presentations, but have a ministry staff meeting at 10 AM on Thursday, no big deal. Watch them on your lunch hour, after dinner, or after you’ve put your kids to bed. Families of kids with disabilities often have little control over their schedules. Flexible scheduling enables them to be part of Inclusion Fusion too!
You can watch ALL of the presentations offered through the conference if you choose to do so. I often attend medical conferences where I miss out on lectures I’d like to attend when I’m presenting myself, or when two or three breakouts I’d like to see are occurring concurrently. Not a problem with Inclusion Fusion.
Ever go to a conference and wish your teammates or friends could share the experience? You can agree to watch any presentation together at any time of YOUR choosing. You can e-mail the link to the conference to colleagues, families or friends and send them your suggestions for “must see” videos.
We’ll be putting together a conference magazine with detailed descriptions of each presentation and biographies of our speakers, but if you’d like to start planning ahead, you can check out this link to the preliminary speaker lineup.
Because of the volume of traffic we’re anticipating on the website during Inclusion Fusion, we’d strongly encourage you to preregister for the conference at www.inclusionfusion.org. As an inducement to register in advance, a number of our speakers have graciously donated books and resources that we’ll be giving away to participants who preregister. Our Key Ministry team likes giving away free stuff.
Did we mention that the entire conference is free?
More than twenty leaders in children’s ministry and disability ministry are coming together on November 3rd-5th to put on a FREE Special Needs Ministry Web Summit to connect church staff, volunteers, family members and caregivers everywhere. That’s Inclusion Fusion, Key Ministry’s First Annual Special Needs Ministry Web Summit, featuring Keynote Speaker Chuck Swindoll. Register here for the Summit!
