RIPPLE – The Scriptures

MCYN & KDŻG have collaborated to bring you RIPPLE – The Scriptures

Why ripple?

In throwing a stone into the water, it is not only the stone that is moved. These webinars were created to further equip youth leaders, so that what they know and what they learn is also passed on to the young people they work with.

Who is it for?

These webinars are intended for youth leaders, animators and anyone involved in youth ministry. Although these webinars are intended for youth group leaders, they are open to whoever is interested in attending.

What is it?

Ripple – The Scriptures is a short web course made up of 4 webinars. These webinars will be looking into some basics about Scripture & the character of God, and how they are essential in our ministry with young people.

The webinars will be broken down as follows:

    • Bible Basics
