Transforming KidZ Ministry Training

Are you creating environments where children meet with God in your home, at school or during church gatherings? 
Are children’s lives being transformed by God?
Are you seeing children fall more deeply in love with Jesus? 

This calls for a radical transformation in the way we approach ministry to children. 

Transforming KidZ Ministry Training has been 

  • uniquely designed 
  • goes beyond educational methodology 
  • encompasses practices and principles of spiritual formation.

The goal of Transforming KidZ Ministry Training is to create teaching environments 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 through a loving relationship. Experiencing love from God draws a child toward love for God.

Overview of Training Resources

Each resource utilizes 

  • interactive, 
  • relational, and 
  • formational teaching strategies 
  • with opportunities for incremental engagement. 

A majority of the eight modules of the Teacher Certificate and the Advanced Training 

  • consists of 2 workshops
  • takes about 5 hours

As parents, teachers and church leaders (any child influencer) give careful attention to God’s presence, we can have a front row seat for the life long process of the Holy Spirit’s transformational work in children.
