Welcome to Kid Builders!
Kidbuilders is a conference for every member of your Children’s Ministry team. We have a great selection of workshops that will help to improve your skills as you strive to better reach the kids in your church each week. This year our course selection is divided into learning “streams”. There are five streams as follows: Cultural Challenges; Leaders; Preschool/Nursery; Large Group and Small Group. We have a great selection of seasoned Kid’s Min. speakers lined up to share their expertise and knowledge with you. Also new this year is our “Coaching Appointments”. Picture it like a personal appointment with a pro! We will meet with you one on one to suggest solutions for your specific area of need. Areas covered by coaching are: Media in your classroom, abuse prevention and behaviour problems.
It is our prayer that KidBuilders will provide an affordable conference so that you can have passionate and well equipped leaders and volunteers in place in place each week as you impart the Gospel to little hearts!
