Introduction to Children at Risk, first module.
We don't know yet when we will offer this first introduction online seminar again, but will let you know when we have the dates. This seminar is for Christians who are passionate about reaching children, families, and communities at risk, including street children, refugee children, kids from broken families, orphans, children living in slums, children with HIV/AIDS, and other children with different needs and challenges in their lives.
It is for those who have completed a Discipleship Training School (DTS), the basic school of YWAM and the University of the Nations, and for people who have not done a DTS, but who have a heart for children and want more training.
It consists of a teaching (2 x 1 hour), with a short break in the middle and a 30-minute small group/ mentoring meeting at the end. Total time is 3 hours for each session.
Topics of the teachings of the first module:
God's Heart for Children I - How does God see children? Understanding more of God’s love, justice, mercy, and compassion.
God's Heart for Children II - Characteristics of wholesome children, what went wrong, and how can we help the children on their way to restoration.
Biblical worldview and community development - How our belief system affects our view of children and poverty and how can we work with them in a wholistic and non-paternalistic way.
