Below, we have listed some Kerby's most requested workshops that he has taught in churches across North America.
Applying God's Truth to a Child's Life
How does this Bible truth affect my life? This workshop teaches teachers how kids learn, then with that knowledge, how to design the lesson so that the students leave the classroom with a practical application of the Bible truths taught and not just a new list of Bible trivia.
The Attitudes of a Leader
Every leader wants God's blessing and God promises us His blessing, but we must follow His plan to receive His blessing. Is your attitude the obstacle? Are you focused on "your program" or "God's people?"
Building Relationships in the Ministry
Need help? Many leaders struggle to recruit new help because the only time they approach someone in the church hallway or call them on the phone, is to ask them to help. This workshop gives leaders ideas for other opportunities to build relationships and thereby accomplish two purposes: it leads to discipleship opportunities and usually helps with recruiting.
Capturing the Heart of Your Students
Why should a child return to your class next week? Five essential ingredients to help build relationships with students which is essential to reaching the parents and strengthening the student's relationship with Christ.
Dealing with Discipline
How can I get control of my class? Learn how to have control of the classroom before the kids ever arrive and keep control of it without appearing to be a dictator. Every class can be rewarding for the teacher and the students, when you can disciple and not spend the entire hour disciplining.
Organizing Your Junior Church
What do we do for 90 minutes? When thought through, the question becomes, "How can I fit all this into 90 minutes?" Leaders learn the key ingredients of a successful Junior Church program.
Plan Your Work, Then Work Your Plan
Where do I start? Many leaders fear taking responsibility to plan a special event because they fail to think through everything that needs to take place, divide responsibilities, then delegate those responsibilities. When this is done properly, everyone can enjoy the event and more people have taken ownership of the task which builds teamwork.
Reaching the Soul of a Child
When is a child ready to be saved? Learn how to ask a child thought provoking questions that will help you understand what they understand about the Gospel. Then, learn how to follow up on that decision and discuss it with their parents and teach them about baptism at the same time.
Secrets for Successful Storytelling
How do I tell a Bible story and keep their attention? Learn six tips to help prepare and present that story while keeping the kids on the edge of their seat.
Teaching with Bible Review Games
Are these kids listening? The only way you will know is by asking them questions, so why not make it fun for them . . . and you? This workshop will teach you how to play a wide variety of different games which will not only be fun, but will give teachers opportunities to reinforce the truths already taught.
