Outreach ministry is one of the most powerful ministries in the church, but it needs to be re-evaluated regularly or it won’t continue to be effective. This course will teach you a better approach to outreach. Your three instructors will walk you through foundational principles to strengthen your outreach strategy.
No matter what your role is in Children’s Ministry, leading can be challenging, intense, and at times, overwhelming. It doesn’t have to be that way! This course will teach you how to lead sustainably. Your instructor, Vance Martin, will guide you through key principles and skills that will help you thrive in your leadership.
Dig into transformational information about how children grow and develop with Dawn Rundman, an author, teacher, and specialist in the area of child development and how that impacts the discipleship of children. Learn how this practically applies to your ministry, and better equip your volunteers to serve the children you minister to!
Develop your ability to create a safe environment for ALL kids! This course is designed to deepen your understanding of trauma, the impact it has on the child, family dynamics, behavioral manifestations of trauma, and creating environments that lead children toward health… all so they can experience the love of Jesus!
Discover the keys to building a team that lasts! In this course, you’ll learn a method of building your volunteer team based on the example set by Jesus himself: ministry multiplication. Your instructor Josh Denhart will help us explore and implement an approach to volunteer leadership that yields committed volunteers and ensures lasting ministry.
When planning a Children’s and Youth ministry arc, the potential of the middle years (4th-6th grade) are not usually fully understood or captured. This course with Sean Sweet will open up the horizons of your ministry to the older elementary kids as we help them to engage with a walk with Jesus that they are moving towards owning for themselves.
We should encourage children to know about who God is, but we should also prioritize a child’s need to encounter and know God personally and intimately. In this course, you’ll gain a better understanding of your role in partnership with the Holy Spirit as He works to form children into the likeness of Christ.
Raise the value of your preteen ministry! For those who have completed the Foundations in Preteen Ministry course, it’s time for the next step. In this course, you will define the driving purpose and take practical steps to develop preteen-specific events, programs, curriculum, worship environments, and more!
