Children's and Family

CFM - Final

Transform a Child.  Transform a Family.  Transform a Generation. 

“We will not hide these truths from our children; we will tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the Lord, about his power and his mighty wonders.” – Psalm 78:4

The School of Children’s and Family Ministry (CFM) offers  a 1 Year Certificate to “get your feet wet”,  an emphasis to take along with one of our 4 Year Degree programs, or a 4 year degree to launch you into a career in children’s and family ministry in a local church or para-church organization.

Our purpose is to equip passionate, well trained, spirit-filled family ministers who can reach out in creative and effective ways to be a positive Christian influence, impacting communities. This is accomplished by equipping leaders with strong Biblical foundation, personal disciplines and immersing them in hands-on family ministry.

Students in Children’s and Family Ministry get to be a part of travel team called KTC.  They will get to take practical classes, create curriculum and road trip with KTC to reach kids with the love of Christ.  Click here for more information.

CFM Director

Sean is the director for the School of Children’s and Family Ministries at Vanguard College.  He was born in Ontario, but grew up in Southeast Asia, which is probably why he likes drinking tea and watching martial arts/action movies so much.  Before coming to Vanguard, Sean served as a Children’s Pastor in Ontario, Manitoba and Alberta for over a decade.  He has a strong desire to see children and their families transformed by the gospel, and to equip leaders who will help them realize that God wants to use them to build his Kingdom now, as well as in the future.  Sean is married to Faith, and they are the proud parents of three fantastic kids.
