Children’s Track

Children’s Track

What happens at the Children’s Tracks?

A full Children’s Equipping Center (CEC), led by Lenny and Tracy La Guardia, is provided for children ages 1–12. (1-year-olds must be walking). Children are equipped with the same message taught to the adults, but at an age-appropriate level.

We encourage children and parents to be equipped together during their time at the International House of Prayer. Therefore, all CEC tracks are available for children whose parents or youth groups are registered and attending the conference.

Children’s Equipping Center tracks are available for all main sessions:

  • The theme of each conference is taught at a child’s comprehension level.
  • The purpose of each session is to train children in the understanding that they can be commissioned to walk in the things of God.

Cost of the Children’s Equipping Center tracks

There is a non-refundable $35 registration fee per child for the Children’s Equipping Center tracks.

Where are the CEC tracks located?
All CEC tracks are held in Children’s Equipping Center facilities close to where the adult sessions are held.

Have your volunteers and staff been through an application and background check process?
Yes, the safety of your child is our top priority. Anyone who is involved in any capacity within CEC has gone through a rigorous application process, complete with reference calls and background checks.

What type of safety precautions does your team employ during the conference?
When you check in, you (parent/guardian) and your child(ren) will each be given a wristband with a security number. In order to pick up a child, the parent/guardian and child must both show their wristbands to ensure the numbers match. During check-in we have you fill out a medical release form that alerts us to any special needs, allergies, etc. that your child might have. We also take your personal phone number in case we need to call you about your child during any of the sessions. One of our staff members will be at the check-in table during each of the sessions to monitor who is going into each session. Anyone who is not a parent/guardian or has not been pre-approved will not be allowed into the CEC facility/room.
