This course is tailor-made to meet the needs of children’s ministry leaders. Children’s leaders who are involved in Sunday School, Children’s Church, Kids' Clubs or any other form of children’s ministry will benefit significantly from this course. The course is an excellent opportunity for networking with others involved in children’s ministry, while being resourced and envisioned, trained and refreshed.

A team of experienced lecturers will deliver a mix of practical and informative sessions which will lead to the award of a Certificate in Children’s Ministry. In addition to attending the weekly lectures the certificate will be awarded to those who successfully complete the coursework assignments. There are no academic entrance requirements for this course; however, it is expected that candidates will be engaged in church-based children’s ministry.

Certificates are presented to those who successfully complete the course at a special ceremony each year.
