We believe children’s ministers make an eternal impact on the lives of children they serve. That’s why we have developed the IMPACT! Certification Program.

This certification program identifies 10 competencies of an effective children’s minister and provides course material for each competency. The courses include video instruction as well as pre- and post-assignments providing practical instruction and hands-on learning activities for each competency.

IMPACT! training is available through two methods – the purchase of  USB drive(s) and coming in SEPTEMBER 2019, IMPACT! Live. Each IMPACT! Live course includes a live interactive learning session with our training team and downloadable resources.
