Volunteer Training: Join the Story!

This 1-hour, story-themed training will equip your volunteers to play their part in a child’s faith story with excellence.


Every child is a story yet to be told, and your children’s ministry volunteers have the opportunity to be an important part of each child’s story. Use this 1-hour volunteer training resource to invite your volunteers to recognize their important role in a child’s faith development and equip them to play their part with excellence.

By using a storybook theme, volunteers will explore the setting and the characters of your children’s ministry and discover what part they can play in a child’s faith story. By using both large-group and age-specific times of training, your volunteers will have an overview of the ministry as well as understand their specific roles. This 1-hour training event was designed with our 8 tips for hosting an all-star volunteer training in mind.
