What some of our students say about this unit:

“I’ve loved the Children’s Ministry Skills course because it’s given me an opportunity to see where children’s ministry can go. I’m in a small church and I can see now where our children’s ministry can grow to. I’ve loved the presenters – they’re so experienced. They’ve been able to show how they’ve grown in their ministry over a long period of time.”

“I really wanted to learn how to explain the gospel clearly and creatively to kids. At the end of this course I feel like I can tell stories well and show Jesus to kids. I thoroughly recommend it!”
