Children's Ministry Breakout Seminars

Extending Faith formation Into the Home
The Church is uniquely gifted to instill faith in kids and be a catalyst for spiritual growth, but the reality is our exposure to kids is limited. We need to extend our reach by activating families to become aware of their responsibility to disciple their kids. Partnering with parents can sometimes seem like an elusive ideal but with intentional investment in your strategy, this can become one of the most important investments you will make in your ministry. In this interactive session we will talk about the need for this partnership with parents, the difficulties you may face and consider some ideas to help you develop an approach.

Extending Capacity Through Leadership Development
I've never heard anyone in ministry say, "We have enough volunteers". Maybe we're approaching the volunteer issue from a needs basis vs. an equipping and retention approach. I've never heard a leader say, I have more than enough time to do what I need to do. In this session we will look at volunteer recruitment and development from a leadership development perspective. In addition we will consider some key strategies as a leader that will help you build and develop your team. We'll consider how you can maximize your bandwidth as a leader and at the same time grow and retain a world class team.
