Children’s Conferences International is one of the nation’s largest, faith-based children’s conference and event facilitors. CCI incorporates high-energy drama, exciting music, memorization of God’s Word, and positive mentoring by dynamic young people to teach children how to build a relationship with Jesus Christ. CCI endeavors to demonstrate God’s truth and love to children on their level so that they are able to understand and apply Biblical principles in every area of their lives.
CCI is directed by Stephen and Nita Leckenby. With over 15 years of ministry experience, Stephen and Nita have worked with children, teenagers, and college students to equip, encourage, and engage them to seek and serve Jesus Christ in every aspect of their lives. Stephen’s passion for music and the Word of God enables him to create original children’s music, drama, and interesting characters. As a gifted piano player, Stephen’s worship leading is not limited only to CCI. Stephen also plays and leads worship in churches in both his current town of residence and also at churches and other venues around the country. Stephen’s desire is for all people to experience worship in heart, soul and mind.
Nita’s heart is to teach and equip young women and men to seek and serve the Lord passionately in their ministry and giftings to which God has called each of them individually. As a passionate seeker of Christ and a gifted counselor, Nita provides powerful insight into the development of each young person to whom she ministers. Her passion for expressing the glory of God also extends to her painting and creation of art and writing designed specifically to demonstrate the beauty of the Lord.
Stephen and Nita have been married for 10 years and reside in Levelland, TX where they serve on staff at South Plains Church. Originally from Washington State, Stephen experienced what many married non-Texans have experienced over the years moving back to the home of his wife’s birth. Stephen holds a Leadership and Management Certificate from the Advanced Training Institute. Nita holds a B.S. in Social Work from Midwestern State University.
