The ENTG conference is different, but powerful because you will walk away with a new plan for ministry to and with children.
This is what Gerry had to say following our training in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
“I have realized how critical it is for our children to become connected with their faith through ministry.
It breathes life into their faith. This is urgent!!!
There were lots of suggestions and a well laid-out plan to follow, as well as the focus on Christ and prayer, it takes a lot of guesswork out of it.
I am so excited that this discipleship model is in print!
It is the key to unlocking passion and enthusiasm for ministry and evangelism in our children, and as a result, it will impact the whole church!” (Gerry Patton, Tulsa, OK)
The cost is $149 which includes our handbook and lunch each day.

How is your church doing in the area of discipling and equipping children for ministry? We invite you to go through our assessment test. "Education vs. Discipleship Assessment"

The E.T.N.G. (Empowering The Next Generation) Conference is a brief conference that significantly impacts the lives of leaders and the children you serve.

  • Day Two: 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Purpose of the Conference

The primary focus of the E.T.N.G. conference is to equip leaders. The training will be extensive and will help church leaders shift to a new paradigm in which children are being discipled and equipped for ministry in the church and as missionaries in the world.

Topics to Be Covered

  1. Family: Leaders will learn proven methods to help families shift their priorities to make Christ first in the home. You will learn simple steps to help moms and dads disciple their children.
  2. Discipleship: Learn how to equip your leaders and move them from being teachers to disciplers. Learn how to move children from being mentees (like Timothy) to mentors (like Paul). We will help you move children from having a knowledge-based faith to an amazing personal walk with Jesus Christ daily.
  3. Ministry Involvement: Every believing child in your ministry has spiritual gifts. These gifts give them identity and purpose in the body of Christ. Leaders will learn how to establish a platform for children to serve in your church today.
  4. Missions: All believers, including children, are called to make disciples and reach the world with the Good News of Christ. Leaders will learn how to develop young missionaries in your church and how to mobilize them into your community and on a mission for Christ.

If you are unable to attend the conference in person we invite you to sign up for our online video certification training.
