Jackson’s Ridge is happy to announce their 2019 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:

 
25 Jan 2019 - 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 2019. Join us, you won’t be sorry.

  • Tried and Tested Games

    If you want to establish a connection with a child, play a game with them. Children`s vocabulary is limited, so play becomes their language. On this fun day, your children`s ministry tool kit will be filled with tons of outside games, classroom games, memory verse games, story games, games with a lesson and one-on-one games. As a children`s minister, if you can be proficient with an array of fun things to do, the kids will love you!! Join us for fun, fun and more fun!!

    Finding effective ways to share God`s word with children on a regular basis has it`s own set of challenges. If your lesson is not eye catching, with a element of surprise you will not have the children`s attention. Learning basic illusions will give you another tool to illustrate a concept and open up the word of God each Sunday morning. Join us for a challenging day full of inspiration, ideas and learning.

  • How to run a Holiday Club

    School holidays always pose a problem for parents. Keeping their children entertained, taken care of and safe is their main objective. When you offer a holiday club for their children to attend during the day, even parents who never set foot inside a church will take advantage of this opportunity. Many churches testify to families joining their church following a Holiday Club program. In addition to this, you will have tons to time to teach them Godly principles and establish relationships with them. If you have never tried a Holiday Club at your church, we strongly recommend that you do.

Come to find out about a variety of camping programs that you can run, and how to make sure that they run smoothly and efficiently.

  • Storytelling as an Art

    There is nothing more life changing than hearing a story that relates to your issues. When a story is told really well, it is easy to listen to, it commands your attention and it leaves a deep impact on your heart. I have yet to find a child who does not love a story! This day will equip you with storytelling skills to make your weekly preparation much easier. Instead of choosing the same old methods you have used for years, you will be given tons of fascinating ideas to impart Bible truths into the children`s hearts.

17 Aug 2019 - Helping you to help parents......and Intergenerational Ministry

This seminar will be separated into 2 sections. In the morning we will address helping parents and go onto intergenerational ministry in the afternoon. As a children's pastor or leader, many times you stand across from a desperate parent seeking help with their children. Most of the time, discipline is the issue, as well as routine and consistency. We will equip you to address these 3 topics with parents to help them bring order to their homes.

What is Intergenerational Ministry? It is educating parents and the church about preparing the next generation to love and serve Jesus and finding ways to implement strategies to ensure that a family's faith is carried from generation to generation.

  • Intergenerational Ministry that creates Multi-Generational Faithfulness
