Sixty (60) children’s ministry workers from 39 churches and organizations were trained online to teach Sunday school lessons from Hope Bearer last March 20, 2021. The webinar was jointly organized by Church Strengthening Ministry, Inc. and the Philippine Children’s Ministry Network (PCMN) that registered participants from Cavite, Rizal (Montalban, San Mateo, Rodriguez and Antipolo), Bacolod and Davao.  Webinar facilitators were trainers Millie Espino and Niña de Mesa who led sessions on the role of parents in teaching spiritual matters, characteristics of children, and teaching techniques that may be applicable online.


CSM trainer Millie Espino gave an overview of the Hope Bearer curriculum, how to use the teacher’s manual, and how to involve parents in teaching the lessons to their children.


CSM trainer Niña de Mesa demonstrated teaching selected lessons to Beginners (4-6 yrs old) and older children (7-12 years).


Participants sweat it out in learning the dance steps for the song, “Yes, Lord, Yes”
