Children’s Equipping Center (CEC) Tracks

Children’s Tracks at Onething 2017

We provide a full Children’s Equipping Center for children ages 5–12 at Onething 2017. Children come with their families from around the world and are taught the same message as the adults, but at an age-appropriate level. We teach children powerful truths from the Word of God—about the love of God, knowing Jesus, who they are in God, ministering in the power of the Holy Spirit, worship and prayer, and much more. All children’s sessions are led by Lenny and Tracy La Guardia and the CEC team.

What is the purpose of the CEC tracks?

  • To communicate the theme of the conference at a child’s comprehension level
  • To help children understand that they can walk in the things of God

Cost

There is a non-refundable $55 registration fee per child for the Children’s Equipping Center tracks. No early bird registration or group discounts for children. Please make sure you register children using the “Children’s Track (CEC) Registration” option online.

When you register, you (parents) and your child(ren) will each be given a wristband with a security number. In order to pick up a child, the parent and child must both show their wristbands to ensure the numbers match. Also during registration we have parents fill out a medical release form that allows us to know any special needs, allergies, etc., that your child might have. It also asks for your personal phone contact information in case we need to call you about your child during any of the sessions. One of our staff members will be at the registration table during each of the sessions to monitor who is going into each session. If they have not been preapproved or are not a parent, they will not be allowed into the room.

Do you have facilities for nursing mothers?
Yes, we have a nursing mothers’ room adjoining the main conference hall.
