TOOL KIT MINISTRIES – 2011
Dear Ministry Partners:
Thank you so much for your prayers, your help and your support for 2011.
The Lord has truly blessed and presented a multitude of opportunities to used to help God’s people over this past year.
In January, Toolkit was part of the new GWCEA convention at UMUC’s Marriot Conference center – teaching 4 workshop classes of over 175 church leaders.
In March Toolkit held a combined outreach seminar at Perkins Square Baptist Church in Baltimore called “What will you do with Jesus?” – a practical working seminar with multiple churches involved. In April, a special in-church childrens’ worker seminar was held at Mt Airy Bible Church – to challenge teachers, mission teams and AWANA workers.
In October, we were a part of the AWANA regional training presenting a new Team Building workshop to help teen leaders-in-training and their leaders communication and challenge the children in the AWANA program. This combination, inter-active class was attended by 100 teens and adults.
In between the larger seminars were smaller workshops for teacher training events in local churches, other outreach ministries and VBS events:
Individual opportunities for Dr. Nancy to teach childrens’ chapel several times at Grace Christian School in Bowie, ladies and childrens’ ministry at Karis Home (Baltimore Rescue Mission), Ladies retreat workshop leader and Summer missionary teen training camp with Childrens’ Bible Ministry of MD also took place this year and finally ending the year sharing the Good News with power point presentations during Fall Fun Fest (Oct 31) at community event in West Baltimore with SW Baptist church and other ministry workers.
What a Variety of events, challenge of topics and blessing of ages groups from teens to grandparents were involved!!!
This year a blog was set up from the website which includes helpful illustrations and personal salvation testimonies to be an encouragement to others:
This year we ministered to a total of 382 church leaders in training classes and many children and teens on special events, bringing the 11 years ministry total to 5,484. May the Lord use these people to multiply His Kingdom by sharing reaching and teaching others to do the same.
Thank you again for sharing in these unique challenges and opportunities.
Always in Christ,
Dr. Nancy Shields, director TKM
