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

In the Children's and Family Ministry Program, we develop leaders who think about and engage in ministry with children and families in creative and innovative ways, all through the power of the Holy Spirit.

To help you do this, Children's and Family Ministries offers a Certificate to “get your feet wet”, and diploma and degree options to launch you into a career in family ministry in a local church or para-church organization.

As part of this program, you will also have the opportunity to apply what you are learning in your classes to real-world ministry situations as part of your practicum experience.

Meet The Team


Children's and Family Ministry Director

Sean is the director of 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.
