Jesus told us to G.L.O.W. In Matthew 5:16. Come learn easy and unique ways to use black lights and every day items to captivate the attention of the kids to teach biblical truths of the Great Commission in this fun hands–on breakout.
Session Two: CM Foundations and Blueprints
Building and maintaining children’s ministries needs to be high priority for your church. As Children’s Ministry Specialists you are either building a new “house” or renovating an existing one. You have the solid foundation of Christ to build His church but what do the blueprints of this “house” look like? Let’s figure out your hopes and expectations and how to implement them into your ministry. Once you have the plan, you’ll go from surviving to thriving and being able to open the doors to endless possibilities to reach children for Christ.
Session Three: Heart to Heart Prayer
Prayer needs to be taught, demonstrated and practiced with children or them to grow in their relationship with God and know what is on his heart. Leaders who make space in schedules for instructional prayer will help children learn how to posture themselves before the Lord, how to see with their heart eyes, listen to his word and respond to him as in Psalm 27:8. Come experience hearing from God for your own purpose and calling so you can teach out of the overflow of your heart this coming Sunday!
