The CMN are excited to bring Australia’s largest children, youth and family ministry conference to Victoria and to bring it right to you and your team!
We have a number of national speakers, but also some great local content in children’s, family and the serving schools spaces including Beth Barnett, Brendan Petty, Phil Day, Matt & Monique Pendle, Stuart Conkie, Naomi Swindon and Korus Connect.
While it is quite feasible for you to register on your own, we encourage you to register and meet with a group and enjoy the richness of discussions and collaboration that can only come from meeting in person. Each session will be both informative and provide opportunity for you to discuss different ideas related to that session.
- The schedule
- High quality pre-recorded and live online content
- One, two or three licences for multiple simultaneous electives and workshops
- Your venue
- Communication with your team
- Internet connection
- One, two or three rooms and computers
- Catering (if safe/appropriate)
- On site check-in, physically distanced seating and other COVIDsafe practicalities
The day will consist of 2 plenary sessions and 3 elective sessions. You will need internet access, a computer and possibly a projector (especially if you have a larger group).
We hope that this will be a blessing to you as we work together to grow God’s kingdom.

If you’re coming as a team in one physical location you only need one person to do the registration (for $70) at suqld.eventsair.com/amplify2021/vicgroup
You’ll need to specify how many licenses you need under ‘group size’. This will be the number of rooms/computers/groups you will have for simultaneous electives. Each license will require a different email address (you might have multiple email addresses or just nominate a co-leader who will be there on the day and who can be in charge of one room). You can re-use your own name and phone number for each group.
Individual online registrations are also possible for $30 each here.
An explanation of how the group registration works is on the AMPLIFY registration. Here are some scenarios to help you along with the licenses/group language.
Scenario 1: John has a group of 14 people. 5 people are passionate about Children & Family ministries, 4 people are leading out in Youth ministry and 5 people are working in schools. Therefore he needs to have three electives available at the same time. He will register for 3 licences. On the day he will set up three computers in 3 different rooms. All 14 people will sit together for the plenary sessions and then move into their various rooms for the elective sessions.
Scenario 2: Mary has a group of 10 people from her church who are interested in the Children’s and Family ministries electives and the Youth electives. Mary will apply for two licenses and set up two rooms on the day. Although the Children’s and Family Ministries group registered for ‘A fresh look at leadership’ for Elective 1, they have decided to do the live session on ‘The Resilience Doughnut’. As all electives will be available on the day they are able to change their minds with no difficulties.
Scenario 3: A group of school chaplains and others working in schools from different places around their area have decided to get together to form a group. They have decided to have two electives running at the same time, even though they are interested in the same stream. They plan to meet together in the breaks to discuss their learning. They will register for two licenses.

Wet Weather Plans (AKA Lockdown)
The event will run as planned irrespective of COVID related restrictions on gatherings. If your own team is not able to physically gather on the day (because of government limits or your own COVIDsafe plans), we encourage you to set up an all-day Zoom call with your team. You’ll then be able to share your screen for the pre-recorded sessions so you can still discuss and interact while watching. Consider breakout rooms for longer times of discussion. For the live electives, your team can all make use of the link that you’ll receive and individualy join the Zoom that we are hosting.
