Session One: Go Light Our World
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!
Basics of Youth Ministry Speakers
Larry has been involved in youth ministry for over 35 years, and is presently the Executive Director of United Youth Outreach, the covering for Street Invaders, Equipping, and various other outreaches. He was born in Ontario, started ministry in New Brunswick (youth worker – 9 years), then Saskatchewan (Youth Pastor/Senior Pastor – 10 years), Calgary (Associate Pastor – 5 years) and finally in his position as Executive Director for the past 20 years.
His heart is to see people won to Christ, especially students, developed into powerful disciples and sent out as influencers for the Kingdom of Light. He believes that one of the best ways we can see this happen is to influence those who influence students – youth leaders.
Larry is married to Sandra and they have 4 grown children: Adam, Greg, Luke, Daniel and 1 furboy; Baxter The Wonderdog. He also continues to believe that one day the Toronto Maple Leafs will win the Stanley Cup (a man of faith indeed).
Rick is presently serving in Equipping, a Youth and Children’s Worker training seminar based out of United Youth Outreach. He has served in youth ministry for over 30 years and has a passion for students to experience a living relationship with Christ that will change their life and their world. Rick is married with 3 married children and has 6 grandkids. His favourite sport is hockey, which makes him truly Canadian.
Equipping’s purpose is to train youth and children’s workers so that they are equipped to minister effectively to this generation. Our heart is to impart, instruct, inspire and connect with you as a leader, so you can be your best!
