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.
