IMG_6462Training children's and youth ministry team members (volunteers) is vitally important but good resources are all too rare. Those that are offered often lack a solid theological perspective and/or field-tested experience. Most of us face the problem of shrinking budgets. So how can we better prepare for reaching kids in 2012?

Crossroads Kids Club, the mission directed by my son Matt, is pleased to offer you an opportunity to access high-quality, live training for your leaders at a very low cost. It is cleverly called “Spring Training.” It is a series of three unique and affordably-priced workshops led by high-caliber leaders in children’s and youth ministry. Each session takes place from 9 a.m. to noon on a Saturday during the spring of 2012. 

Information is available at Spring Training Workshops. Even if you do not live in the Chicago area there are resources Crossroads offers that you might find extremely helpful. Also, there is no time like right now to plan to begin a Kids Club in your local public school for this fall, 2012. Matt and his team can help you and your congregation begin and develop an effective way to reach the most reachable individuals in your community. Check out Crossroads if your have a real desire to reach into your public schools with the love of Christ.
