Join the 2019 Children's Ministry Leadership Cohort

From January to June of 2019, I'll be leading a group of children's ministers in a unique leadership development experience.

You'll learn to assimilate and train volunteers, build a child protection policy for your church, and partner with parents. You'll be developed as a theologically driven, gospel-centered, mission-focused children’s ministry leader. Cost for this coaching cohort includes one in-person ministry retreat,  five conference calls, and five books.

“Jared has served as an incredible ministry coach in my life. He has helped me lay out a specific and detailed action plan for the church I serve in, held me accountable to it, and provided biblically-informed wisdom as I strive to accomplish this plan. However, as important as the church ministry is, Jared has a deep passion and concern for my personal and family life—leading me to set a similar plan for those areas as well.” Brent Cisson, Family Ministries Pastor, Heritage Fellowship, Medford, OR

“I cannot think of anyone more passionate about gospel-centered ministry than Jared Kennedy. His leadership, excitement and coaching has helped me refocus and shape the direction of my church’s family ministry. If you have the opportunity to learn from Jared in any capacity, I highly recommend you take advantage of it.” Josh Hogue, Children's and Family Pastor, First Southern Baptist Church, Scottsdale, AZ

I learned so much while participating in Jared's coaching cohort. Jared used really helpful resources and questions to help me grow and evaluate my church's children's ministry. He walked me through setting up and implementing a strategic ministry plan. Jared took the time to get to know me, my ministry, and my church in order to know how to best care for and advise me as a children's director. He also gave ample time to ask questions and learn from his experience. Laura Knisely, Trinity Church, Abington, PA

Jared does an incredible job of helping you keep the gospel primary while helping you evaluate your ministry and develop and implement an action plan that will help it grow. Throughout and following the cohort, Jared is personable, accessible and ready to help. As a result of my time with him, our ministry has benefited and I have grown as a leader. Finally, Jared is a baller in arcade basketball (but I did beat him once)! Cody Timmerman, Central Baptist Church, Americus, GA
