Leading Children (and families!) to Heaven
Training for Children’s Ministry, Sabbath School and VBS Leaders

Over about two months in 2016, more than 300 people attended these trainings at six locations throughout our territory. Seminars covered a range of topics, including how to lead Sabbath School and VBS, and how to help your child navigate safely through our evolving digital world. Alice Merrill, NCC children's/family/Adventurer ministries associate director, reports there were lots of great comments, such as: "I learned a ton of new information and gained several resources that will be helpful" and "All the presenters were fabulous, well prepared and qualified."
