How could we do without these people? This is a special shout out to the people behind the scenes, so that you know it takes a community to run a mega-community event!
The Kids Drop Off Zone (KDOZ) is probably the most important ministry of the convention. These homeschooling parents make sure your kids, of different ages and learning needs, are well taken care of while you’re receiving much needed encouragement at the convention.
