New Kind of Leader Training!
Red Tour is a collection of resources to help local leaders learn how to better love and minister to kids. It is a collaboration between Children & Family, Pathfinders & Adventurers, and Youth & Young Adult ministries. The Pathfinder and Adventurer Department will offer an online (ZOOM) training three times in 2023.
April 23 – Spanish (To register Click Here )
April 30 – English ( To register Click Here)
October 22 – English
The title of this training is – A New Kind of Leader.
The goal of the training is to invite Club Directors and leaders working with kids to slow down to really examine what matters. And we will ask some difficult questions to test if we are “acting” like those things really matter. Invite all the adults in your church to join you to take the journey towards discovering what matters most to your church. Learn how to prioritize ministry to ALL KIDS through developing a strategy, working as a team, and connecting with parents. Ready to re-vision how you and your team impacts families … sign up! And we strongly encourage your pastor to attend also.
Watch the Newsletter for info to sign up!
