Children and Family

Our Coordinator of Education for Children and Family Ministries is working to:

  • Develop a quality certificate program for children’s and family ministries (achieved in conjunction with the BC Conference youth ministry and in partnership with the Vancouver School of Theology).
  • Create and implement a range of educational and training programs and events that support the vision as outlined.
  • Strengthen the networks of those involved in children’s and family ministries in BC Conference.
  • Develop and curate on-line resources and materials for those involved in children’s and family ministries.

If you have a suggestion as to a topic for training or education, please contact Rev. Mary Nichol.
