Regional Children’s Ministry Workshop

Darren HalesAll Enews, Strengthening Team

Over the last several years, Child Evangelism Fellowship of Montana has become a great ministry partner. Many of our MTSBC churches have experienced a 5 Day Club in their community and know their commitment to excellence. Our pastors have seen their excitement in sharing the Gospel in creative and compelling ways. Everything CEF does is rooted in Scripture and they have a great testimony with our churches. The foundation of their success is prayer, a reliance on the Holy Spirit, and extensive training with their staff and ministry volunteers.

Preparation is so important! Now, the MTSBC has partnered with CEF of Montana to provide the same quality training and resources for your Children’s Ministry workers. This FREE training is designed to equip teachers in the following ways:

  • Engage your class in creative and compelling ways
  • Learn how to teach both lost and saved children in the same class
  • Develop effective classroom management skills
  • Learn to make each Bible lesson Gospel centered.
  • Lead a child to Christ so the child truly understands
  • Allow a child to make a decision without any form of pressure or coercion
  • Teach discipleship skills for children to grow in their relationship with Jesus
  • Understand age-related characteristics of children
  • Teach and encourage children to share the Gospel
  • Network with other Children’s Ministry Workers for tips, resources, and support
