GOOD NEWS FOR PARENTS, YOUTH AND CHILDREN’S WORKERS!

Parents, do you sometimes feel tired and inadequate in your role as parent?

Youth and Children’s Workers, do you wonder how to engage children’s hearts during lessons especially boys or how to teach those tough passages?

We’ve invited Rory Bell, director of Teaching and Training (TnT) ministries to better equip us in our roles of shepherding our young people.  For over twenty years TnT ministries has been resourcing and equipping people to teach the Bible more faithfully, creatively and effectively.

Conference days: 18,20-21 January

Venue: St. Andrew’s Church, 138 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui

Bring your partner or whole team and be encouraged, enthused and equipped!

Parenting with Purpose - Thursday or Saturday night

Course info: Parenting with Purpose

The Bible clearly teaches that parents are to be the primary spiritual mentors of their children. But most parents are too tired or feel inadequate to undertake what can seem like an impossible task. Come and be inspired, equipped and encouraged in your God-given role to bring your children up in the fear and knowledge of the Lord.

Course info:

10am-10:45am Get real with God Fruitful ministry flows from keeping our personal relationship with God as the priority and not ministry itself.  Come and be encouraged to pursue your relationship with God.
11am-11:45am Engaging the Heart Take your teaching beyond passing on facts, appeal to the heart. See real life-change when you apply God’s word, in an age-appropriate way, to the lives of those you teach.
12pm-12:30pm Discipline + Q+A Children generally have loads of energy and enthusiasm which is why it’s such a joy to minister to them! But what happens when these bundles of energy get out of control? In this session, we will explore principles to help you maintain control while still reflecting the character of a gracious God.
1:30pm-2:15pm Engaging Boys Boys are different to girls – everyone knows that! But sometimes they are taught as though there is no difference at all. Learn how to adapt your teaching style to engage the boys meaningfully.
2:30pm-4:15pm Child Development Children are not simply mini-adults! They’re in the process of developing into adults and they therefore have rapidly changing abilities. If they are going to be taught effectively these abilities must be considered. Explore the differences between children and adults so that you can adapt your teaching style to hit the spot – every time! The first session deals with the intellectual, emotional and physical development of children. The second session is dedicated to understanding their spiritual development.
4:30pm-5:30pm Teaching Tough Passages Get to grips with teaching some of the difficult (perhaps even gruesome) passages of the Bible to children of all ages.
