About This Class

We believe that God passionately loves children. He has given parents and church a mission to nurture the young ones well in the Kingdom of God. Children are not only our future spiritual warriors but also church of today. They deserve our best attention, resources and effort. As a pastor, a church leader, a Sunday school teacher or a parent, we have to work together to provide the best environment for their spiritual growth and to share with them the love of God.

This course will move into advanced topics in Children’s Ministry leadership. Through lecturing, hands-on activities and small group discussions, students will gain insights of top issues in this ministry field. The approach of a learning community is employed in class for encouraging shared expertise. Students will also be introduced to practical tips and strategies in leading Children’s Ministry to move forward in this fast-paced world as well as to examine our own leadership. Topics include CM leadership, volunteerism, family ministry, safety and security.
