The Three Rivers Chapter is authorized by the Children’s Ministries Institute® in Missouri to offer both levels of Teaching Children Effectively™. The emphasis of Teaching Children Effectively Level 1 is how to more effectively evangelize children by using the Wordless Book. Also offered in the 30-hour course are topics such as: classroom discipline, teaching an evangelistic Bible lesson, how to teach a memory verse, how to effectively use music in the club hour, as well as how to counsel children for salvation.
Teaching Children Effectively Level 2, also a 30-hour course, emphasizes how to disciple and minister to children who already know the Lord Jesus as Savior. Special attention is given to teaching missions, the importance of a child’s devotional life, how to teach a saved child Bible lesson, and helpful tips to share with saved children concerning witnessing. Successful completion of Level 1 is a prerequisite.
Both levels require in-class and outside-of-class practicums.
The chapter is also equipped to offer specialized training for teaching a Good News Club or how to use the Wordless Book. For schedules and training opportunities call the chapter office at 815.741.0366.
