NEW ORLEANS (BP) -- Registration is open for preschool childcare as well as Children in Action and Youth on Mission programs in conjunction with the Southern Baptist Convention's June 19-20 annual meeting in New Orleans.

Southern Baptist Disaster Relief childcare units will care for preschoolers, while Woman's Missionary Union will guide the Children in Action and Youth on Mission curricula and activities.

Preschool childcare and activities for grades 1-6 will be housed at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, the annual meeting site. Students in grades 7-12 will meet at the convention center before going into the community with Baptist Friendship House for hands-on mission work. Students will return to the convention center prior to the close of the afternoon session each day.

Registration is handled online at under the "Children and Students" tab. Space is limited.

Youth on Mission will be offered June 19-20. 

Youth on Mission will teach students entering grades 7–12 to link Bible study with missional living, said Gaylor Parker, event coordinator and Maryland/Delaware WMU executive director. WMU leaders, students and adults who have been third-culture kids will lead participants in mission work in New Orleans neighborhoods and bring them back to the convention center at each day's end for prayer and debriefing.

"Students will enjoy a worship experience in the morning along with small group Bible studies and interaction with a missionary," Parker said. "They will have the opportunity to live out what they studied as they serve in hands-on ministry projects at the Baptist Friendship House in New Orleans and the surrounding community."

Youth on Mission is $50 per child. In addition, there is a $10 non-refundable registration fee per child.
