Online Training Program

The Master Teacher Certificate

This entire certificate program is offered on campus. Three courses are now available online. This certificate is awarded to the student upon the successful completion of four courses related to direct ministry to children.

Seminars

Many seminars are available that provide children’s ministry leaders, volunteers and parents with effective training that will help them evangelize and disciple children. As well, pastors and children’s ministry leaders can use these seminars for training groups.  Biblical principles and practical ideas are clearly communicated in each seminar. They can be taken at a self study pace. No credit can be earned towards another program of study. Many are available free of charge!

Demonstrations

Bible lesson, missionary story, memory verse, and song demonstrations are available FREE online. As you watch these demonstrations to help you prepare to teach, you will see the elements that should be included as well as interactive ideas to help keep the children engaged as you teach. They can be viewed at any time. No credit can be earned towards another program of study.

On Campus and Online Course Transfer

Students are able to combine both on campus and online courses to complete their degree program.
