Training is crucial to our ministry to children.  Every volunteer needs to be prepared to teach the children or to serve as club administrative assistant or grade shepherd.  Whatever the assignment, we want you to feel confident and ready to go.  It's a challenge in our busy world, and CEF®is always looking for ways to provide training tools to help you effectively reach out to boys & girls in your area.

Training for Good News Club®
When a church adopts a school for an after-school Good News Club®, it forms a team of people who will serve together providing a dynamic weekly Bible club for children in that school.  The team includes a coordinator, administrator or secretary, teachers, and grade shepherds.


Once the team is in place, CEF® provides 8 hours of training, and then helps the club get started. Good News Club® Workshops are also offered for all GNC volunteers to introduce a new lesson series.


People from the partnering church, who cannot commit to being at club each week, are asked to provide prayer support and help with the purchase of snacks.


This is a wonderful outreach for a church!  Great way to reach children and connect with families!
