Course Overview

The world can be a scary place for kids. But what if our cultural obsession with safety is actually keeping kids from cultivating the courage they need to face hard and scary things? This course helps ministry leaders grapple with the tension between keeping kids safe and equipping kids and their families to boldly cultivate courage in Jesus.

You’ll explore key fears that are prevalent in our culture and ministries, and then discover how Jesus gives courage to move through those fears. And you’ll explore practical ways to create a ministry environment that cultivates courage in Jesus.
