WHAT AGES CAN ATTEND?
More Than Words Conference is for mature middle schoolers and up. All youth must be accompanied by a parent or authorized youth group leader/pastor. The conference event is not suitable for children under middle school age.
CAN I BRING MY
BABY AND STROLLER?
Babies and small children are not allowed at the conference due to the intense volume and light effects used. The room is large, dark, crowded, and loud, and is no place for a small one! Strollers and large diaper bags are not allowed inside the venue (please see under Safety). And we do not have onsite childcare. We respectfully ask that all children under middle school aged please remain at home.
WHAT HOTELS ARE NEARBY?
