Inclusion Fusion 2012…and more

I’d promised to follow up with all of you about our plans following Inclusion Fusion 2011, and to invite your input and suggestions. Here’s where we stand:

We will maintain free access to all of the content from this year’s conference on the Inclusion Fusion website through December 31st.

After December 31st, all of the videos will be available online through a new website that Jeremy Collins and the folks at Pajama Conference have developed…Kidmin Coaching. Presentations from Key Ministry staff and volunteers from this year’s Inclusion Fusion as well as the 2011 Children’s Ministry Telesummit will be available in the “free” area of Kidmin Coaching. Other presentations from this year’s conference will be available in the “premium” area of the site until next year’s conference. Following next year’s conference, all of those videos will be made available as part of the “free” content on the site.

We’ll also be maintaining the Inclusion Fusion conference site. After December 31, the content on the conference site will include all of the presentations from our Key Ministry team, along with select videos from this year’s conference that will be rotated throughout the year. As with the Kidmin Coaching site, all of the videos from this year’s conference will again be freely available following the completion of the 2012 conference.

Our long-term plan is for the Inclusion Fusion site to evolve into a FREE, online video training library that will reflect best practices for churches seeking to minister with children and adults with a broad range of special needs and their families.

In order to cover their costs of supporting Inclusion Fusion, the folks from Pajama Conference will be making available for sale a boxed set of DVDs containing all of the video presentations and downloads from the conference. Boxed sets will be available through the Inclusion Fusion website as well as the Pajama Conference website. The price of the complete set of conference videos will be $49. The boxed set will make a great gift for churches desirous of a resource for training staff and volunteers, as well as for families caring for a child or adult with special needs. We’ll be announcing the process for obtaining the DVD sets from our friends at Pajama Conference later this week.

Inclusion Fusion 2012 has been tentatively scheduled for November 8-12. Between now and then, we’re planning a series of presentations on topics of interest in special needs ministry under the Inclusion Fusion banner. We’re exploring the possibility of doing several live events in the coming year, and looking at ways of creating more opportunities for interaction between conference participants and our presenters.

We continue to be open to your suggestions on topics and presenters you’d like to see included in next year’s conference or special interest mini-conferences throughout the course of next year…please share your ideas in the “Comments” section of the blog below.

We would like to continue to offer our thanks and appreciation to Jeremy Collins and his team at Pajama Conference for allowing us to make these resources available to churches, pastors, volunteers, families and caregivers.
