New Jersey Conference Children’s Ministries Leaders Receive Training

Story by Anthony Baffi

The New Jersey Conference’s Children’s Ministries Department began the year with its first-ever hybrid convention, titled “Let Them In.” The theme was based on Noah and his efforts to prepare others to enter the safety of the ark through faithful preaching and teaching.

More than 100 leaders attended the two-day event, earning certificates for the North American Division Children’s Ministries Track 3 Child Evangelism training program.

After the virtual certification, the department held an in-person Vacation Bible School (VBS) training. Local church leaders were excited to familiarize themselves with Jasper Canyon and Rocky the Hound Dog, but, more importantly, they are excited to have the opportunity to offer in-person VBS at their local churches this summer.

“Please pray for New Jersey’s children and our Children’s Ministries leaders,” says Cinthia Portanova, Children’s Ministries volunteer director. “May our number one priority be to help save as many as possible for the kingdom of heaven, just like Noah.”
