Would you like a Children's Ministry Training Event in your Church?

It is easy for you to set up a children's ministry  training seminar.  You provide the venue, some refreshments and get your team together on the day.  You might choose to advertise the seminar amongst other churches to get a bigger crowd.  David will come and provide the training which can be done on Saturday, or Sunday (after church), or mid week.

Would you like David to preach?

David Goodwin speaks at conferences, seminars and churches all over the world.  No matter how large or small your congregation is, he would be very happy to come to your church to speak.  




Some of his specialties are:

  • Inspiring your church to think more about your kids ministry.
  • Family services
  • Healing from emotional hurts.




Would you like to host a 'Lost in Transition Seminar'?

This seminar is based on research completed by David in 2012  that investigated why as many as 50% of children, who have been raised in churches, stop attending during the transition from primary school to high school. This is something every church leader and member should be concerned about.

To host the seminar, you provide the venue, some refreshments and get your team together on the day.  You also need to be willing to  advertise the seminar amongst other churches in your town.  It can be done midweek or on the weekend.  Get in touch with us so we can talk.
