Block Party Ministry

2020 Block Party Events are listed below!

Block party ministry is a great way to reach your local community with lasting effects, not only on the community, but also on the hosting church. In a non-traditional, non-threatening way, it becomes a simple tool to share the love of the church plus the wonderful love of Christ. Over the past several years hundreds of people have come to know Christ as their Savior during block party events.

In the planning and preparation of one of these events, the most useful resource is prayer. Block party trailers and equipment are tools that God has furnished to share the gospel. People, along with churches, have grown spiritually as well as numerically because of the passion for this ministry.  It is an easy and productive ministry that you and your church can become involved in.

In 2020, there are six Regional Block Party Training Seminars and the ONE Block Party Festival: 

Block Party Training Seminars are geared towards churches and associations that have a block party ministry already.  Each event includes inflatable certification for persons 18 years and up (younger folks can take the training, but we only certify adults), how to set up your block party, current liability and insurance laws, and evangelism training. Choose from these 2020 dates and locations. Each location goes from 9:00 a.m. to NOON, with light snacks provided. Please have one person gather a headcount from your church, then click the location of your choice to go to that event registration page:
