Who are the trainers leading these events?

  • Children Worship & Wonder Trainers have completed training in Young Children and Worship and most are also certified Godly Play story tellers. They have participated in Children Worship & Wonder Training of Trainer events conducted by staff of Disciples Home Missions.

  • All trainers are experienced story tellers and have helped to set up at least one Children’s Worship Center in a local church.

 

What will the training involve?

  • You will learn the theological rationale behind Children Worship & Wonder and develop a basic understanding of the approach. You will see the story telling and other components of the worship service demonstrated.

  • You will receive help in developing your own story telling skills and have opportunities to practice telling stories and leading other parts of the children’s service of worship.

  • You will learn ways to involve other adults in children’s worship and receive help in setting-up a children’s worship center for your church.

Requirements

  • You must purchase the book Young Children and Worship by Sonja M. Stewart and Jerome W. Berryman, and bring it with you to each session. The book can be ordered from Worship Woodworks, (888) 689-6757, www.worshipwoodworks.com. You can also order the book through many commercial bookstores. In order to participate in the training you will need to read at least the introduction of Young Children and Worship. In order to do Children Worship & Wonder it is good to have at least 2 people in your congregation receive the training. Also available in Korean, contact Kelly Harris for more information.
