Children’s Ministry Course

Children’s Ministry

Block Course

31 August – 4 September 

Equip yourself to be more effective in your Children’s Ministry.

This highly interactive course explores the biblical and theological foundations, current trends, and relevant issues in ministry to children and their families within a local church context. It investigates theory and praxis for faith development issues and formulates a rationale for ministry with children and examines the nature and spirituality of children in light of biblical, theological, and developmental perspectives.

While analysing current ministry practices and considering cultural trends, it also addresses transformational teaching practices for children.

Assessments include: online reflections, interviewing children, ministry observation and a final essay.

This course will be taught by Tammy Tolman and Annette Osborne.
