Our Training Programs



*Required for anyone who desires to volunteer in a Good News Clubs. 

In preparation for starting a Good News Club, our Quick Start Training will help equip you through a series of quick training sessions designed help you get started well.  Each session gives you what you need to know in order to successfully teach children in your club. We cover the three essential parts of a Good News Club (Bible lesson, Memory Verse and Wonder Time)  in the training as well as instruction for other club components, including video demos to observe teachers in action. You will learn how to pull these elements together into a weekly club your kids will love.

Quick Start Trainings are scheduled for January and August or can be requested when starting a new club.
