Children’s Ministry Certification

What is Children’s Ministries Certification? 

CDM’s Certification Program is theological and practical training for non-ordained staff or volunteers who are currently serving in children’s ministry within the local church.  Whether your church is 50 or 5000 people, this certification program will impact your church by developing and enhancing your Children’s Ministry.

The 12-month program is progressive.  It is a combination of webinars, readings, and projects that will provide training for every area of Children’s Ministry. 

All participants will be part of the CDM community that includes investment by two experienced mentors, a professional online cohort with others ministering to children, and attendance to the Children’s Leadership Training Retreat.  Once a student passes the 12-month certification training, he or she will receive an official Certificate of Training in Children’s Ministry from the PCA denomination.
