DALLAS (BP) — Registration opens Feb. 1 for preschool child care, Giant Cow Children’s Ministries and Youth on Mission in conjunction with the Southern Baptist Convention Pastors’ Conference June 10-11 and the SBC’s June 12-13 annual meeting.

All activities for children and youth will be housed at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, the annual meeting site. Youth who have completed grades 7-12 will begin their days at the convention center with worship each morning before going into the community for hands-on mission projects.
