Busy ministry leaders NEED time out to pray and think about their ministry
they LEARN from sharing their joys and challenges with other leaders
they LOVE to sit back and watch top class ministry with real kids that they haven’t had to plan
they GROW in skills and confidence by trying new skills in a safe setting

‘‘@ctiv@te was my first taste of what children’s ministry could be like.
Seeing the kids open and excited about Jesus was contagious.
It exposed me to new ideas and ways of doing things... Loved it’’
- Children's Worker

@CTIV@TE is one of THE most effective
children’s ministry training strategies
that I have seen. It puts leaders into
a children’s camp setting to watch
experienced practitioners model
different ways of engaging with
children, followed up with debriefing
sessions to talk about what they
have seen. Mentoring at its best! ”

"I loved the @CTIV@TE conference because it was a multi-dimensional, immersion experience, catering for all learning styles for both adult and child learners. This approach which was at all times challenging yet highly supportive, gave us time to be refreshed, updated and taught by an experienced and dynamic team while observing the children’s program unfold. There were many opportunities to reflect and share with both other participants and the teaching team. The opportunity to participate in the program while being mentored by the team was invaluable and I will never forget it. I would highly recommend the entire program (rather than just the one day conference) for anyone involved in children’s ministry regardless of skill level or experience.  The one day program, while terrific is a bit like reading a review for a film or best seller without actually seeing the film or reading the book. Finally, the joy and delight on the children’s faces will remain with me always and particularly seeing so many children commit their lives to the Lord."
