Preschool and Children’s Ministers’ Retreat

Invest in yourself and your ministry

Please join us for an intensive and experiential learning opportunity that will equip you to advance your children’s ministry. This one-credit course will be taught by Dr. Diane Lane, who served as the Childhood Specialist for Texas Baptists for over 20 years. Participants will spend three days hearing from and interacting with other people who are called to serve in children’s ministry as staff members and as volunteers. Come learn from others’ experiences as you invest in yourself to better serve your church.
