Rethinking Children’s Ministry: Helping Kids Feel Safe at Church

We know that Children’s Ministry is a vital part of any church. It is why families come and unfortunately why families sometimes leave.

This eye-opening training will equip pastors, ministry leaders, and volunteers to see the connection between childhood experiences and the ability to facilitate healthy, loving relationships.

Our early relationships, whether smooth, rocky or abusive, set the tone for how we trust, set boundaries, and ask for help as adults.

Additionally, traumatic experiences, both big and small, greatly impact who we become. Being informed about how trauma impacts our relationships is key in helping us to love others as Jesus loves us.

Pastors and ministry leaders will leave this workshop equipped to better serve those who have experienced trauma.


  • What the risk factors for trauma are
  • Adverse Childhood Experiences
  • How trauma impacts a person
  • How fear drives behavior
  • Practical strategies that build healthy relationships
  • A plan of action to empower leaders and volunteers
