Jackson’s Ridge is happy to announce their 2018 Training Program. We offer a wide range of one-day seminars (9:00-16:30) where you will be trained fully in that particular skill. By the time you leave JR, you will easily be able to apply all you have learnt in your next Sunday School class. Check out what’s on offer:

 
26 Jan 2018 - Children’s Pastors and Workers Retreat

Soul care for the Children’s ministry Leader - CM can be one of the hardest ministries in the church. Leaders face unique challenges in this ministry, so they can quickly become discouraged, burnt out and feel like giving up. Taking care of yourself and ensuring that you receive ministry into these areas is essential. We are setting up Friday evening to be a special time of encouragement and ministry for Pastors and Leaders. We will enjoy a good meal together, receive encouragement through ministry and will step into the presence of God to receive His fresh new anointing and power for 2018. Join us, you won’t be sorry.
