Child Evangelism Fellowship South Africa

Childrens Ministries Institute®

The Children's Ministries Institute provides specialized, practical training in children's ministries not found in Bible colleges or Christian universities.

If you have a heart for reaching children for Christ and discipling them, if you desire to train others in this ministry or if you are seeking career opportunities in this field, CMI is just what you are looking for. The 12-week curriculum consists of three phases.

Children's Ministries (Weeks 1-5)
Gain insights for understanding, evangelizing and discipling children through a variety of methods and programs.

Teacher Training (Weeks 6-7)
Pass on your training and passion for children by systematically discipling and equipping teachers to minister effectively to children. Course Descriptions

Leadership Development (Weeks 8-12)
Called to ministry? Cultivate the qualities necessary to administrate a children's ministry and to give godly leadership. Course Descriptions

There are 6 classes of 50 minutes each day Monday to Friday. Time is also set apart for study and homework.

Who should attend the CMI?

Priority is given to students who can attend the full 12-week program. However, the course is arranged to allow people to attend for short term study. So people can apply to attend one or more of the modules. This flexibility has allowed students to finish the CMI over a period of a few years.

Conditions of Acceptance
