Transforming KidZ Ministry Training
Experiencing love from God draws a child to love for God. The goal of Transforming KidZ Ministry Training is to create teaching environments in homes, schools and churches where children encounter their loving God. While the accumulation of intellectual information will cause a child to know about God, transformation occurs when a child knows God.
This calls for a radical transformation in the way we approach ministry to children. To that end, the Transforming KidZ Ministry Training has been uniquely designed to go beyond educational methodology to approach ministry to children with principles of spiritual formation. As parents, teachers and church leaders give careful attention to God’s presence, we can watch while the Holy Spirit forms the likeness of Christ in children.
Transforming KidZ Ministry Training presents three kinds of resources: Teacher Certificate, Advanced Training and Leadership Resources.
