Anyone under age 18 staying on campus must have a responsible parent or puppet team director of the same gender 21 years or older as an on-campus chaperone. If you bring both male and female teens, you must bring both male and female adult sponsors to stay in the male or female dorms with the teens. If you do not have the required sponsors please plan to stay in a nearby motel.
At I-Fest 2015 J-Fest was introduced. Children 5-11 may now attend I-Fest with their families and be a part of a little Dream Team. The daily program includes prop building, puppetry, gospel illusion, human video, scripture memorization and more. J-Fest allows families to experience I-Fest and for CMS to develop the next generation to use creative arts in ministry. Space is limited, so register early for this awesome program.
Bring your check, cash and credit card! There will be resources available in the exhibit area. Vendors with creative resources, materials, products and services will be on display. The exhibit area will be open at scheduled breaks and before and after general sessions for you to shop and select great resources for your ministry.
