SPARK is a grass roots multi-site equipping retreat that began in 2011 by two Indiana Church of the Nazarene districts partnering together. The following year, all four Indiana districts partnered together. Fast-forward 12 years: we now have SPARKs from coast to coast in the USA and Canada as well as online.
SPARK is a 3 day/2 night retreat for Local Children’s Leaders at Camp and Conference Centers. What can you expect at this retreat? Leadership development, connect with others, and learn together for a low cost. Each year, we are reminded that we are one team from different cities and on different districts, but all called to serve God, children and their families.
Ways to Join SPARK
Join Children’s Leaders from your geographic area for a time of equipping, encouragement, and connecting at a camp, conference center, or retreat center near you. See dates and locations below.

For Spring Locations...
SPARK+ is your local SPARK and SPARK::Online. For an additional $20 to your SPARK registration, you will also have access to SPARK::Online ($60 value). Why do I want SPARK+? To keep the party going! It’s an additional equipping opportunity presented by an array of children’s leaders from across North America. Check out the SPARK you want to attend below for how to register.
