The Academy for Ministries with Children is designed for person seeking training in children's ministry. The Academy for Ministries with Children offers local church workers paraprofessional certification through a two-year cycle of courses. The courses are developed to affirm and strengthen the passion and love for ministry through a holistic and theological understanding of children and children's ministry.
Participants will be required to read two books prior to the beginning of each course, and complete an assignment to be handed in at each class. You will receive a syllabus upon completion of registration. In order to receive certification, all eight courses must be completed. However, individual courses may be taken. The academy does not offer academic credits.
