We’ve launched a new online space for learning, where anyone can sign up and develop key skills required for children and youth ministry.
We’re starting out by turning our fundamental training course, Academy Basics, into two courses focused on children and youth ministry, containing over 40 videos and activities that will increase confidence. We’ve been delivering these face-to-face for many years, and they have helped hundreds of volunteers start their ministry journeys, or build on their experience and learn new skills.
If you’re a paid worker, you could do one of these courses as a team with volunteers, gather every week or so and review what you’ve all learned. It can be a wonderful way of team building, as well as acquiring new skills and developing your church’s ministry together. The New Year is a great time to think about new skills.
But it’s not only these two courses! We have a lot more in the pipeline, particularly for paid workers and experienced volunteers: on building a vision, working in schools, recruiting volunteers, faith development and reflective practice. There will also be practical modules on how to use craft, the value of games, leading space for prayer and discussions. On top of this, we’ll be adding extra features.
