Team Training Class
Our Team Training Class is open to those willing to come, and is held on Thursday’s at the Corvallis First Baptist Church. Class runs from 9:30-11:30am. We start off our time together with short “skills” class(e.g. How to counsel a Child, How to teach a Memory Verse, etc). During class you’ll see a demonstration of the material planned for the next week’s Good News Club®. This includes the Bible lesson, memory verse and review game, as well as suggested songs whose themes fit well with the week’s material. After the demonstration, we’ll take a look at the Bible passage behind the lesson and see what God has for us teachers to learn from the story. Most weeks we have a local Pastor come share this with us.
If you’re using CEF® materials and are looking for ideas on how to use them in your class, are working with CEF in teaching a club already, or would like to see what a Good News Club looks like, then you should come to our Team Training Class!
Call the CEF Office (541-752-3740) for more information on Team Training Class and our current class schedule.

Teaching Children Effectively (TCE)
Teaching Children Effectively™ (TCE™) Level 1 is designed to offer a fresh approach to evangelizing and teaching children. Based on spiritual and educational principles, the course provides the methods and procedures to lead children to Christ and immediately equips the believer to begin and sustain a ministry where he lives. Student practicums are a vital part of the instructional procedure making TCE a refreshing way to train Christians in child evangelism. You can learn more about TCE here.
This course can either be taken through CMI online or as a field course. Benton County is planning on having a field course February 2019. If you would be interested in enrolling in our TCE class, please contact our office!
