We can't and don't do this ministry alone. We are in this together...Connected! Therefore join and connect with dozens and dozens of other CMDA volunteers, staff and local leaders who minister and serve healthcare students and professionals all across the country. The CMDA Connections Conference (now in its eighth year) is a unique time of worship, prayer, equipping and learning.

This annual Connections Conference, which brings together full- and part-time CMDA staff, campus advisors, ministry partners and local CMDA ministry leaders is an opportunity to be encouraged, equipped and energized in the ministry that we all share together. And for the first time, the Connections Conference takes place right before our CMDA National Convention in Asheville, NC. So now you have the opportunity to come for the Connections Conference and stay for our National Convention.

From inspiring and challenging plenary sessions with author and trainer Doug Pollock, author of God Space, to fruitful small group discussions and breakout sessions tailored to your ministry context, along with worship and fellowship, you won't want to miss this time to come together.
