Workshops:

Workshops Include: Teaching Kids God’s Way of Dealing with Bullying – Love & Logic – Simply the Word – Kids Worship – Puppets - Strategies of Hands on Learning – Guiding a Child to the Savior – Good Teachers can become Great Teachers


Workshop: LOVE and LOGIC:

How to have success with relationships inside your classroom. You will learn with laughter: how to avoid unwinnable power struggles and arguments, techniques for teaching respect and responsibility, a step-by-step plan for gaining cooperation from the most challenging kids, how to stay sane even when nothing seems to be working.


Workshop: Simply the Story

Simply the story (or S.T.S.) is an oral inductive method of teaching the Bible to both children and adults. Using the STS method, teachers learn and teach the way Jesus taught…through stories and asking questions with student participation.


Workshop: Helping your students deal with bullying

did you know that 160,000 kids will not attend school today because of bullying. We get many prayer requests from our students about them being bullied. This workshop is designed to help us, help our students with this real issue in our schools today.


Workshop: Strategies for Hands on Learning

Believe it or not, the lesson’s effect is measured when the children leave the classroom! Changing their lives by affecting their choices is the ultimate goal of every Children’s ministry teacher.


Workshop: Leading a Child to Christ

How often have we tried to get spiritual growth from children that are not spiritually alive in Christ? This workshop will show you the ‘1,2,3’s’ of leading a child to Christ in a way the children can understand and by God’s grace receive His Son as Savior.


Workshop: Hiding God’s Word in your heart and Review Can Be Exciting! Enhancing Learning in a fun way.

Review time can also help the teacher see how well you are teaching. Also included will be games and ideas to help teach Bible verse to your students. Come and get some great review and Bible Memory verse ideas to enhance your teaching skills.


Workshop: Witnessing With Puppets

You will learn to share God's Word with conviction and light-heartedness using puppets as witnessing tools, with children and adults, to disciple others who are interested in performing and developing a ministry in the church and community and use puppetry to involve shy, non-verbal or non-musical people in a ministry that allows them to find an effective way to minister and excel.

Workshop: Worship workshop

a hands on experience in praise and worship without having much talent yourself. Learn how much fun it is to show our students how to praise the Lord using pre-recorded Praise and Worship music and interpretive sign language.

Bystander to Upstander: Helping Kids Disarm and Stand Up to Bullying - Kelli Espiritu

We will glean from Focus on the Family's research, advice and tips and help kids see how they can make a difference when it comes to dealing with Bullies.

Finding the 3am Statement for Your Sunday School Lesson - Kelli Espiritu

If someone woke you up at 3:00 a.m. on a Sunday morning and asked "What are you going to teach in Sunday school or Released Time class today?", you should be able to answer in one short 30 second answer. Today you will learn some invaluable, practical strategies to accomplish that and help you look forward to teaching every week.

Move over Millennials, Make Way for Generation Z – Kelli Espiritu

Generation Z are kids born in 1995 or later. And these are the children entering our children’s church and Released Time classrooms each week. We'll learn the differences between the two generations and how we can best parent and minister to a group of kids that make up 25.9% of the U. S. population.
