Capitol Hill Baptist Church Children’s Ministry Resources
Capitol Hill Baptist Church: Philosophy, Curriculum Overview, Resources
This book is what we use to lead our workshop in Washington, DC. It has many of the resources that From the Ground Up has, but it is ordered differently to better fit the flow of our workshop presentation.
Two big differences between this book and From the Ground Up:
- This book includes samples of all three curriculum in it. From the Ground Up does not.
- This book does NOT include all of the more in-depth help on starting out in Children’s Ministry or with Praise Factory curriculum that From the Ground Up does.
We love to use it as the first part of our workshop, where we talk in more general terms. The second part of the workshop is when we talk more about implementing curriculum in your ministry situation. That’s where From the Ground Up comes in. This book can be purchased through Amazon.com.
