Think Small: Foundations of Children’s Work 2021

What is it?

Think Small: Foundations of Children's Work is an entry level training programme for those working and volunteering in children’s ministry in The Salvation Army. Think Small 2021 will introduce new leaders to the latest principals and approaches of children's ministry. Think Small students will also participate in coaching. We recommend that students undergo three coaching sessions, but must attend a minimum of two.

When is it?

Our 2021 programme will run from March to June:

  • In-person training, all day Saturday 13 March
  • Webinar training, 10am Saturday 10 April
  • Webinar training, 10am Saturday 8 May
  • In-person training, all day Saturday 12 June

In-person training days will take place in Wellington. Should covid alert levels rise to level 3 or 4, in-person training days will take place via webinar.

How much does it cost?

Think Small is free for all students. We value all that our children’s workers and volunteers do and wish to invest in them so they can continue to bless their communities. The Territorial Children’s Mission Department will cover travel and accommodation costs for the in-person training days. Webinars are scheduled on free video calling software.
