If you’ve been around long, you know I’m a total nerd and conference junkie. I love to learn and share what I learn. That’s why I am so excited about this week’s giveaway: 2 leaders will win free access to one online course from Equip Family! With online courses, you don’t have to pay tons of money, travel far away, or even leave your couch to learn valuable ministry skills and gain leadership development.

* This giveaway is now closed.* This week, we’re giving away free access to one course from Equip Family to 2 lucky winners! Equip Family is run by Julia Ball, the creator of our Fall Family Night, Fruit of the Spirit Take Home Kit, Guide to Family Worship, Family Advent Calendar, and more!

In August 2020, Julia launched 2 online courses designed specifically for children’s ministry leaders…

1) Creative Ideas for Family Ministry – This online course has 6 units in all, covering topics from making a plan, empowering parents, successful Sundays, and more. Each unit has a 22-minutes-or-less video + a SUPER practical assignment that helps you implement what you’re learning right away. The course handbook and other downloads included in the course (a free sample coming Friday!) are invaluable in helping you do your job as a children’s ministry leader better. This course provides the strategic framework to stake steps forward in your family ministry planning and implementation. Learn more about this course here, and keep reading to learn how to enter to win free access!

2) Teaching Theology to Kids – This online course has 8 units that cover Jesus and salvation, the Trinity, the Holy Spirit, how to teach these concepts to kids, and more. Each unit includes 1-2 short teaching videos (totaling 30 minutes or less), and an assignment that helps you process and dive deeper. I love that this course helps you take inventory of your own understanding of theology, then explore how you can teach theology to kids. Kids CAN understand big truths, and this course helps you teach big truths in little ways. Learn more about this course here, and keep reading to learn how to enter to win free access!

I love online courses because you can learn at your own pace, but you also have the added value of participation in secret Facebook groups for the participants. And each of these courses is only $29! Seriously a steal, especially when you consider all that’s included.


1) Follow Deeper KidMin & Equip Family on Facebook. Make sure to follow both pages, or your entry won’t count!

2) Answer the question below on this Facebook post:

3) Wait for Friday, September 25, 2020 when we’ll announce the winners on Facebook! Congrats to Amy Douglas and Bethany DeWalt – our winners!

But don’t worry! Even if you don’t win, you’ll still have the chance to download a freebie from one of the courses this Friday. Stay tuned!

  2. Creative ideas for Family Ministry.
    These days are challenging at best to engage families during CoVid. Our city is a hotspot and about 1/2 of our families are not coming. Families are stressed in navigating restrictions pressed on them. I’d like to know some creative ideas to help families during this time, to encourage them, help them to be the primary disciplers of their children. Thank you for offering this!
