2019 MÂCHÉ Convention

April 11, 2019 @ 8:00 am - April 13, 2019 @ 5:30 pm

2019 MÂCHÉ Convention

April 11-13, 2019  ~  RiverCentre, St. Paul MN



Home education has changed over the years. What was once a "pioneer" movement to disciple and train our children in Godliness has mainstreamed into something that more closely resembles public school at home. Though academics are very important, there is so much more to home education than that. The very heart of home education can easily be replaced with good things, without retaining the best things. 

The 2019 MÂCHÉ Convention is actually three events combined into one weekend. Each is a distinctly different event with a different focus; attendees should register separately for each event that they intend to attend. You will learn more about them below.

Our Convention Theme is "Giving All Diligence." Our superb speakers and informative exhibitors (many of them new) will energize you with your endeavors and will offer you significant insight on building Godly character in your children ... and in yourselves. Won't you join us this year!  (Registration begins January 1, 2019.)

"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 in you and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ." (Second Peter 1:5-8)

“Every year we look forward to going to MACHE Convention. It is one of the highlights of our year! We wish others would see the benefits and come. There are far too many that are not connected well with others on this journey, and may become discouraged. Each year is a refreshing time, and we love to be challenged and connect with others that are on a similar path with their family.”  ~Michelle

“The MACHE conference has been so helpful over the years. About 8 years ago, my husband and I attended our first one, feeling a God-placed burden on our hearts to homeschool and not having a clue how to get started. Our call to homeschool was affirmed through that first conference. We realized we were not alone as we saw thousands of other homeschool parents. We took classes that gave us the tools to get started. Today we still attend the conference. The encouragement and resources provided every year can help even experienced homeschool families. Thanks MACHE for a job well done!!”  ~Jenny

“Our 1st conference — gave us the confidence and encouragement we needed to get started on our home education journey with our family!!! Thank you for taking the time to organize this conference; it was vital to us, and my husband and I had a great time together!”  ~Natalie

“I am always so-o-o-o-o encouraged and uplifted after going to MACHE!!!! It's as if the Lord directs me to what I most need to hear from each speaker I choose to attend!!! Already planning next year's event!”  ~Carolyn

“We have been attending the Mache conference for 10 years. This year's conference not only gave us the information we needed to homeschool through high school but also encouraged and challenged us in our spiritual journey as individuals and family leaders as well. Thank you Mache for being faithful in supporting our families on our homeschool journeys.”  ~Amanda

“My husband and I look forward to attending the MACHE Conference together every year. It helps us refocus on our homeschooling goals and find new solutions for areas we'd like to improve in our family and our homeschool. We are always encouraged by the speakers and in seeing all the other homeschooling families represented there! It helps us realize that we are not alone!” ~Wendy

“Each year the MACHE conference brings encouragement, refreshment, and reinvigoration to the homeschooling family. We are inspired by great speakers and encouraged by seeing the greater homeschooling community brought together. It is a blessing to be a part of a great organization with a noble vision for educating our children in a Christ-centered environment — HOME. This year we were able to share the experience with a couple of our daughters. They were inspired and amazed by the whole conference. Thank you for all your hard work at making the conference happen every year! We know it is no small feat.” ~Jason & Rebecca

Three events in one Convention weekend!

THURSDAY SESSIONS ...............

Taking that first step into home education can be quite unnerving! Teaching anything past the basic reading, 'writing, and 'arithmetic can be rather intimidating, to say the least! Working with struggling learners can be totally exhausting because of the enormous amount of energy that is constantly required. Let us encourage you in these three important topics - beginning, high school, and struggling learners. (Thursday, April 11)

LEADERSHIP FORUM .................

Leaders of homeschool support groups and co-ops face unique challenges. Not only are they homeschooling their own children and keeping their homes running smoothly, but they are also leading a group of families, which means planning, scheduling, organizing, communicating, and making decisions. This event is intended to be an enjoyable and instructional time for leaders. Your whole board is welcome to attend!  (Thursday, April 11)

CONFERENCE .............................

Our objective as home educating parents is to prepare faithful generations for Godly leadership. Each child is distinctively created; each family is unique. In the turbulent milieu of our present-day society, it is imperative that we train our children ... and ourselves ... to demonstrate the  character of Jesus Christ through faith, virtue, knowledge, self-control, perseverance, godliness, brotherly kindness, and love.  (Friday / Saturday, April 12-13)

CONFERENCE "Extras" ...............

CONFERENCE registrants are also able to attend MÂCHÉ's Exhibit Hall, Used Curricula Sale, Mentors' BoothSilent AuctionKeynote SessionsStudent Preludes, Young Entrepreneurs, Special Sessions, Teen Track, and much more.
