Live Video Training

Now any church can afford quality volunteer training!

Most churches can't afford to bring in professional kidmin trainers. Many charge large fees - and then you have travel, lodging and other expenses on top of an honorarium.

If you have a small ministry, the high cost of in-person training simply isn't feasible. The good news: you have another option!


Not only do we make it incredibly affordable, we add on many valuable benefits! Our goal is to bless your socks off!

You need to host via Zoom, and you'll send Karl the join link. If you don't have a Zoom account, or would like Karl to host it so you can have a custom registration page, just add $50 to your order. Karl can host up to 500 attendees. ($50 upcharge for over 100 attendees.)

Note: If you are still social distancing, each attendee will be invited to sign in from their own device to join the training. 

Karl brings fun, interactive training, and provides all the handouts, plus assistance in planning your event. No group is too small! In fact, Karl loves small church ministry and knows how hard it is to get high quality training on tight budgets. That is why he is offering video training!

What the training covers:

This is a custom workshop specifically designed for doing live over ZOOM. In order words, Karl doesn't do this workshop anywhere else!

It is designed to cover the basics volunteers need to be as effective as possible in their ministry to the children they are entrusted with.

Topics covered include:

  • Who we need to be to connect with kids.
  • How to relate to kids from within their world.
  • How to engage kids in the learning process.
  • Secrets to effective teaching.
  • Managing kids positively. (AKA: discipline tips!)
  • OR a leader can choose a specific topic to meet their ministry needs.
