Reaching the next level
Sat, 22 Mar 2014

These days are specifically designed for people who want to see their children's ministries reach the next level. There will be teaching on how to develop teams, how to run great Sunday programmes and how to create community outreach clubs, as well as sessions on safeguarding children and leaders, how to tell captivating stories, how to see children minister in the power of the Spirit and the keys to making smooth transitions between kids and youth programmes and so much more.

The seminars will be delivered by practitioners who have perfected their skills with children in local churches. The day will start and end with inspirational worship and keynotes to inspire, challenge and motivate you to becoming everything God created you to be and showing you how to use the gifts that he has placed in your heart. There will also be a range of excellent resources available for you to browse and purchase and opportunity to network with others.
