Above all else, the Gospel is the message we are trying to share with the children, youth, and adults God places in our life path and in our community. It is the Gospel of Jesus Christ that is the power of God to change hearts and bring salvation (Romans 1:16). Come learn a versatile technique to share the gospel in any situation and any conversation, especially in our postmodern world. We’ll use teaching, video, demonstration, and practice to equip you to clearly and concisely share the gospel message with anyone the Lord places in your path.

How do you do this with your younger children? Come learn how to focus on three things to transform the lives of your small group.

Do you have a elementary student? Do you minister to elementary students? Do you ever come in contact with elementary students? Then this workshop is for you! Early school years significantly shape a child's formation, spiritual and otherwise. As we interact with elementary children, especially those we are in a relationship with and responsible for in some way, we need to be intentional about understanding how they are growing & understanding the world. Doing so can inform the way that we help them understand their own spirituality and better help them to meet the God who is already speaking to their hearts. This workshop is especially suited for those are looking to build into the home as the primary place where faith is lived out and nurtured.
