Giving all Diligence ... "add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ." (2 Peter 1:5-8)

Get ready for an outstanding conference experience! 

Dr. Steve and Megan Scheibner, our 2019 keynote speakers, have exciting stories to share that will delight and challenge you. They are an unforgettable experience just by themselves! (See their biography below.) 

But we have many other speakers just as exciting and as immensely enjoyable: Nancy Bjorkman, Mark Beck, Kris Cox, Jamie Erickson, Steve Donofrio,  Frederic Gray, Kris Hage, Given Hoffman, Adam Hultstrand, James Mason, Jake MacAuley, Forrest and Beth Mora, Peggy Ployhar, and Woody Robertson.  Then Dr. Lainna Callentine and Chuck Black will be bringing some fantastic sessions for our teens in this year's TWO teen tracks.

If you enjoy being a blessing to others, there are several ways in which you can have a distinct role in making this year's conference extra special!

  • Our silent auction can use donations of homemade crafts, books, services, gift baskets, and more. The proceeds will be going toward MÂCHÉ's various ministries to Minnesota home educators.
  • The used curriculum sale is always well attended as attendees are always looking for good used curricula which would help them build their store of homeschool supplies.
  • Student musicians are an encouragement to all of our attendees ... both the students and their parents ... because we can see the results of many years of hard work.
  • NEW this year: we are inviting Young Entrepreneurs (ages 13-25) to take part in our 2019 exhibit hall and to show us what they've accomplished over the last several years.
  • We always need plenty of volunteers to help make the whole convention weekend a positive experience for thousands of people. There are several different areas where you can serve.

Would you consider taking part in one or more of these opportunities to encourage other home educators? Read more about these opportunities ... and the speakers  ... and the workshops ... and lots more ... HERE. (Scroll down the page to the links.)

Get ready for an outstanding conference full of valuable encouragement, information, and inspiration! You'll be glad you did!  Registration opens January 1, 2019!
