Kids Ministry Track


When Jesus commissioned us to GO and preach the Gospel to every nation, He meant for us to GO to the children too. On our continent, nearly 50% of the population is made up of children. As a Kids Minister, you are uniquely poised to change the world, and our hope is that in doing the Kids Ministry Track, you will be affirmed in your calling, inspired with God’s heart for kids and equipped with the skills to reach and disciple the children in every nation.

The course is for people who want to EXPAND their existing kids ministry, or PIONEER a new kids ministry as part of a church plant.
