They leave no stone unturned to ensure that children receive excellent ministry and are given every opportunity to receive the Gospel. They train children ministers all across Southern Africa to improve their skills and encourage them to reach out to children and change their lives through the power of Jesus Christ.

 
Consider holding a regional children's ministry training at your church
 

All you need to do is contact the churches in your area and invite them to a "Children Ministry Seminar." We will send you a flyer advertising the seminar. You will decide on the price, you will keep record of registration and host the event. Seminars can start on a Friday evening and end Saturday, or you could choose to do a one day event. We will bring a resource table full of children's ministries "helps", helps you choose a program that will appeal to all churches and be available to assist you in the areas you need help.

 

Alternatively, Neville and Gail would be happy to conduct a training seminar at your church for your children's ministry staff or as a special event and training seminar for all your children's ministry staff and volunteers from your group of churches.

 

They are also available to be Guest Speakers at your special Sunday children services, Family Services, Camps, Outreaches and any other special events.
