We have gifted Children and Families leaders within the CBWC who would love to come facilitate a workshop with your congregation.

Biblical Storytelling

Amanda Hecht, Wakaw, SK

Mandi is passionate about making the Bible come alive for people of all ages and inspiring them to see how their own stories intersect the greater story of God.

How to Go from a Great Children’s Ministry to a Phases Ministry

Bree & Lee Young, Summerland, B.C.

This workshop is for parents and those volunteers working with children birth to 12 years old. Using their learning and training from “Orange,” Lee and Bree will discuss the phases of child development, and focus on six things your kids need most and four important conversations for each phase.

Why Family Ministry?

Bree Young, Summerland, B.C.

Parents are the number one influencers in their child’s life.  The Church’s potential to influence a child dramatically increases when we partner with parents. This workshop will give you practical ways to begin, develop and grow a great family ministry.  

Generations Worshiping, Learning & Serving Together

Sherry Bennett, Kelowna, B.C.

This workshop helps us discover what life together as families in authentic community is meant to look like. We will examine biblical and sociological perspectives on generations and offer practical tools in order to better understand and engage in worship, discipleship and service together as God’s people.

Parenting and Partnering with Impact

Sherry Bennett, Kelowna, B.C.

This practical workshop explores the importance of intentional discipleship in our homes and in our church community in order to see the next generation have their hearts captured by Jesus and become fully engaged with God’s family on mission.

Developing Mission Minded Family

Sherry Bennett, Kelowna, B.C.

God has set us in families and in neighbourhoods in order to be His presence where we live, work and play. We will explore four postures and their related actions for mission as family: Prayer; Presence; Practice; Proclamation.

Teaching for Transformation

Sherry Bennett, Kelowna, B.C.

This workshop is designed for those who teach children and youth in a Sunday School context. We will explore how to move from teaching for information, to teaching for formation and then transformation. We will explore learning styles, developmental descriptions and participate in putting together engaging age-appropriate lessons.

Metaphor and Creativity in Worship

Joan Dosso, Victoria, B.C.

This practical workshop explores metaphor and symbols from Scripture, nature, and everyday life to more deeply understand and worship God. We will discuss and experience practical ways of using creativity and metaphor to bring our personal and corporate worship alive. Worship leaders, pastors, and anyone who wants to enrich their spiritual life through creativity will be encouraged and equipped.
