How does this course work?
Teaching Theology to Kids is an 8-unit course designed to equip you to understand theology and better teach it to the children you serve. Each unit includes a video lesson (approximately 20-30 minutes) from Julia Ball of Equip Family. Along with the video lessons, you'll have access to weekly reflections & projects to complete at your own pace, recommended reading lists, and ideas for teaching the ideas to children!

What credentials does this course have?
This course is intended to be for self-learning, and isn't meant to replace training you'd receive at a Bible college or other institution. It is meant to be for those who lead children and are looking for opportunities to further their learning! Julia Ball, the instructor, is a Children's & Families Pastor who holds Bachelors' & Masters' Degrees in Theology.
Do I have a time limit to complete the course?

There is NO grading, but Julia will provide feedback and interaction with all course students in a private Facebook group.
