2016 Workshop

Children's Ministry Leadership: Facing the Gospel Truth About Today's Children's Ministry


When it comes to lifelong discipleship, how’s your church’s children’s ministry doing, really? Awana recently released 10 critical research findings that express the pain-points and passion areas of faithful kidmin leaders across the U.S. As it turns out, despite its best efforts the church has a great discipleship disconnect on its hands. If you love kids and families, lead or serve in children’s ministry or are responsible for key discipleship ministry decisions in your church, this breakout is for you. Through engaging teaching and discussion you will be introduced to a timely resource, The Gospel Truth About Children’s Ministry by Matt Markins and Dan Lovaglia with Mark McPeak. You will also be challenged to identify and implement practical next steps to increase lifelong discipleship effectiveness in your church, children’s ministry, families and kids.
