International Assembly: children's ministries

  • “ALIEN KIDS… Out of the World”, Assembly for Children. Once again this year there will be preschool and elementary ministry in the morning and evening worship for our elementary children. Check out the flyer for all the details. There will be translation for Spanish-speaking children. Flyer is attached here. 
  • Children’s Ministry Leadership Events - On Thursday, July 19 from 2:00-4:45 the International Children's ministry office will host a Children’s Ministry Mini-Conference. If you work in any area of children's ministry, please plan to attend this mini conference. This year’s guest is Annette Safstrom, co-author of Sustainable Children’s Ministry. This book was written to help children’s ministry leaders not just “hang in” and “hold tight” but develop children’s ministry that can be sustained. Annette will help children’s ministry leaders learn how to build a ministry foundation that will assure ministry fruitfulness. Flyer is attached here. 
  • Anyone attending the assembly who would like to volunteer during the kid's assembly, please contact Ashley Bennett at or 540-875-8770
  • On Saturday evening, July 21, children’s ministry will be on the main stage of the Assembly. Please pray that during this time the value of children in the kingdom of God will be raised, that pastors and leaders will commit to serving children well, and that God will affirm calling to serve children in the hearts of many."

Impact: cm training

We are working to train our children's leaders and volunteers in the state of VA though IMPACT training. "We believe children’s ministers make an eternal impact on the lives of children they serve. That’s why we have developed the IMPACT! training series. The first training series identities 10 competencies of an effective children’s minister.  The course includes video instruction and pre and post-assignments that provide practical instruction and hands-on learning activities for each competency.

The IMPACT! training is available through DVD instruction as well as online.

Ashley would like to visit the districts and work on completing these trainings.

If your church would be interested in hosting 2 or 3 training days, please contact Ashley Stevens.
