Details on available training for children’s workers.

Developing leadership skills in all Children’s Ministries workers is super important to us—that’s why it’s one of our goals! We offer a couple of different training and development opportunities territorially, and we have compiled a list of available training opportunities throughout New Zealand (from The Salvation Army and other organisations).


Within Your Reach

Formerly known as TYCMC,  WITHIN YOUR REACH is our annual territorial youth and children’s ministries conference. We highly recommend all youth and children’s workers from our territory attend, as it is a great weekend of learning, developing, worshipping, and networking. Join us on the weekend of 20-22 July in Wellington.

Foundations of Children’s Work

Building on the example set by our chums in the Territorial Youth Department, in 2017 we launched Foundations of Children’s Work!

Foundations of Children's Work is an introductory training course that aims to educate, encourage and equip committed, passionate children’s workers and leaders who are disciples of Jesus and are committed to making a difference in their communities.
