What is the Children’s Ministry Leadership Course?
The Children’s Ministry Leadership Course (CMLC) provides specialised, practical training in children’s ministries. If you have a heart for reaching children for Christ and discipling them or if you desire to train others in this ministry, CMLC is just what you are looking for.

- Innovative ministries to reach and teach children
- Teaching a Bible lesson to children

Here is what a student has said:
“Having been involved in children’s ministry for a few years before attending the Children’s Ministry Leadership Course, I felt as though I already knew lots about ministry with children. However, the CMLC took both my understanding and passion for children’s ministry to a new level. The sessions on teaching a Bible lesson rather than telling Bible stories, and how to do this effectively, were a particular highlight. And I did meet my wife at this course as well!” (Simon)
We are running a CMLC from 22nd September – 14th December 2024 in Seaview Camp and Conference Centre, Kilkeel, Northern Ireland. See the brochure below for more details.
