Our children’s program will be provided by Giant Cow Children’s Ministries. Giant Cow events feature high-energy drama, exciting music, really fun activities, memorization of God’s Word and positive mentoring by dynamic young people. (Volunteers are accepted beginning at age 12 and up.)


  • Separate registration and payment is required for the Giant Cow Kids Event. You will need to register with GCM and with NCHE Thrive! Conference. When you get to the conference, you need to sign in to the conference before signing in to the kids event.
  • Contact Giant Cow to find out about receiving FREE REGISTRATION in exchange for your older child volunteering with the Giant Cow team (volunteer must be at least 14 years old and volunteer for the whole weekend).
  • Children need to be registered for the Thrive! Conference (one child or family pass) to attend the GCM Kids Event. Children must be wearing a Thrive! wristband when they sign into the Kids Event.
