VAULT was born out of a desire to contribute to the equipping and encouraging of children and family ministry workers in the Ottawa and surrounding areas. Initially it began with an idea of gathering and sharing resources and experiences, from the network of churches in the area. Then, valuable resources and experiences from curriculum publishers and guest speakers were added. Together, by opening a shared vault or treasure of information, it was envisaged that a day of workshops could be organized and offered to workers (both adult & youth) that would engage and encourage those who are serving and learning how to reach children and families for Christ!

The vision is that workers would attend VAULT and experience encouragement through praise & worship & sharing; explore a time of equipping to serve in children & family ministries through workshops and resources; and engage in the opportunity to connect and build relationships. In all, it is our prayer that those who attend would be strengthened to serve The Lord in this important calling in ministry to children and families, and gain a greater Kingdom perspective of ministry.


The Ottawa Network of Children & Family Ministries

Meeting regularly since 2002, for the purpose of sharing, encouraging, and prayer, the CFM Network is attended by leaders of children & family ministries from over a dozen different churches with the common aim of strengthening these ministries in the local church.  Over the years, the network has grown with the added purpose of planning VAULT – a day of equipping and encouraging for children’s ministry workers.

If you are helping to lead in the children’s ministries in your church, in a staff or voluntary role, we welcome you to participate in network meetings, please let us know via the contact us page.


Workshops are in progress. We are thankful for all the workshop leaders who are contributing their time and expertise to VAULT. Their unique experience, skills, and passion for reaching children and families for Christ will help make the conference relevant and practical in specific areas of ministry!
