You enjoy working with children. You want children to be people of faith. You want children to grow as disciples of Jesus Christ. But how does that happen? And what if you don't think you have the knowledge or skills needed for such important work? And even if you’re willing to give it a try, how will you find the time to learn, plan, or prepare?
Discover the basics for how children learn, how to plan effectively, and how to create sacred space in which children experience the love and grace of God through Jesus Christ and find ways to respond as disciples! Join an online learning community that shares your passion for children’s faith formation and that will encourage you as you develop and deepen the skills you need for teaching for transformation.
