Transformational Faith Formation in Children through Serving

Learning to live as Jesus’ disciples can begin at a very young age. This workshop will help you create a culture of mission and service throughout your school and children’s ministry, teaching children of all ages how to be the hands and feet of Jesus in a real and significant way. Learn ways to incorporate missional thinking and activities into the church/school classroom and then moving beyond the classroom into the community. Help children discover opportunities to serve both near and far, and put into practice what they have learned.
