Children's Ministries

We want to equip families and parents to be spiritual guardians. We are here to provide resources, training, and support to children, families, individuals and churches. We want to be your best friend and greatest supporter in your spiritual and parenting journey. May your desire be to show God’s love through worship in your home and in your church and in your daily life.

Jesus commissions us in Matthew 28 to be disciples and make disciples. And in Deuteronomy 6, we are given direction as to the spiritual development of our families. We will partner with you to accomplish this.


Child Protection Training & Background

Verified Volunteers (VV), a subsidiary of Sterling, is the new background check provider for the Minnesota Conference.

All staff and volunteers can now complete their background checks online. The process includes child protection training. If you do not have computer access available, please talk to your pastor, or other leadership to arrange access to do the training and background check. 

Please visit Verified Volunteers by downloading the instruction sheet below. All background checks are valid for three years and should be retaken prior to the upcoming retake date, if necessary.

Undocumented Volunteers
If a volunteer is undocumented the program has the option so that they can go through the background check portion of the training even though they may not yet have all of their documentation.
