Kansas City Homeschool Conference

by Jimmie Lanley on March 12, 2012

For my readers living near the Kansas City area, I have great news for you! If you are looking for homeschool encouragement, new curriculum, or information about how to start homeschooling, be sure to set aside April 19-21 for the Midwest Parent Educators 2012 Conference.

In fact, at the end of this post, there is information about how you can win passes for your family to attend the conference.

Kevin Swanson from Generations with Vision will present the keynote address at Emmanuel Baptist Church on Thursday, April 19, at 7.00 p.m. Then the conference and curriculum fair will be April 20 – 21 at the KCI Expo Center.

Sessions led by Israel Wayne and other speakers will encourage you in your commitment to homeschool and offer the practical tips you need to succeed. The sessions feature special tracks for

  • families just starting out with homeschooling
  • families homeschooling children with learning challenges
The exhibition hall will be full of vendors. I saw plenty of familiar names on the list:  Sonlight, Teaching Textbooks, YWAM Publishing, My Father’s World, Rainbow Resource, Math-U-See, and Classical Conversations.
Over 1200 families attended the 2011 conference, and the 2012 conference is expected to be see an increase in participants. Visit the official Midwest Parent Educators 2012 Conference website for more details about lodging, registration, and more.


I am hosting a giveaway on behalf of the Midwest Parent Educators. One family will win an adult conference registration (which includes a spouse)  and children’s conference registration for all the 5-12 year olds in the family.

All you need to do to be eligible is to leave a comment here. I will randomly choose a winner on Friday March 16 and pass your name on to MPE who will provide the entrance tickets.

You do have to provide your own transportation and lodging. The giveaway is only for the admission ticket. You must be a resident of America and at least age 18 to enter and win.

Hi- This would be such a blessing! I live in Kansas City and we are on our 2nd year of homeschooling. I have not been to a conference before and would LOVE to attend! Thanks so much for the opportunity!

Cool! The people who set me up homeschooling live in the KC urban area. I noticed you were presenting in another conference. Will you also present here? You may acquire a larger following after this too. I’m asking around to see who of my friends are headed over to this conference and may refer them to meet you in person.
Thanks for your support as I manage the homeschool adventure.

Oh Jimmie! I hope I am not too late- we are only an hour from Kansas City!

Would love to win a ticket! I have never been to a homeschool conference “in real life”.

With this being our first year homeschooling we are very excited about the conference. My husband and I are planning on staying in a hotel for a couple nights and making a fun vacation out of it. We keep hearing about this fun hotel in Kansas City that has a water park in it.
