Group schedules national conferences and offers custom training through its REAL Ambassadors. These national conferences include: The KidMin Conference: The Unconventional Conference for Children's Ministry (National Conference); The Simply Youth Ministry Conference (National Conference); statement of faith We believe the Bible is the inspired, authoritative Word of God. We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, in his virgin birth, in his sinless life, in his death on the cross, in his bodily resurrection, in his ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in his personal return. We believe people receive forgiveness of sins and eternal life through a relationship with Jesus. philosophy of education Do you have a teaching ministry -- or a learning ministry? It's one thing to teach. It's another thing to see learning happen. Group resources utilize authentic learning -- that is, learning that actually works, that actually sticks. Group resources incorporate educational approaches that help students learn best -- and make learning stick. each resource is REAL Relational -- because student-to-student interaction enhances learning and builds Christian friendships. Experiential -- because what students experience sticks with them up to 9 times longer than what they simply hear or read. Applicable -- because connecting God's Word to learners' real world moves learning beyond information to transformation. Learner-based -- because students learn more and retain it longer when the process is designed according to how they learn best. Put those together and you get REAL learning. Authentic, life-changing, long-term learning that builds Christian faith in children, youth, and adults! send us your ideas!
