Seminar Details:

Building An Effective Children’s Ministry
How do we develop a children's ministry that is effective in calling children to faith in Christ and establishing them in a faith that lasts?

Presenting The Gospel To Children
How can we clearly and passionately present God's good news to children? And how do we appropriately call on them to respond?

Answering Questions Children Ask
Children’s questions can be daunting. But learning to welcome, celebrate and handle questions effectively is vital to each child’s faith.

Helping Parents Shepherd Their Children
Parents are the primary shepherds of their children, so how can we support and encourage them in this vital ministry?

Creative Storytelling
Stories are the most effective way of unpacking abstract concepts (faith, hope, repentance...) to concrete thinkers. This is a very practical seminar with lots of take home ideas, packed full of stories for all ages.

How To Grow Servant-Hearted Children
God’s Spirit gives each Christian gifts. These gifts are to be used to build up the body of Christ. How do we encourage Christian children to serve one another? How do we identify the gifts God has given them, train them to use those gifts and create opportunities for them to serve?
