We are pleased to offer two types of training events in 2019;
The Block Party Festival (offered once on Saturday, March 9, 2019) is for churches wanting to start a Block Party Ministry. Face painting and evangelism training will be offered. Churches from all over Arkansas will be onsite, setting up their Block Party Trailers for you to see them in action! See below.
Block Party Training Seminars are offered in eight locations this Spring. Seminars include inflatable certification* for persons 18 years and up (younger folks can take the training, but we only certify adults), how to set up your block party, current liability and insurance laws, evangelism training, and lunch. See below.
Block party ministry is a great way to reach your local community with lasting effects not only on the community but also on the hosting church. In a non-traditional, non-threatening way, it becomes a simple tool to share the love of the church plus the wonderful love of Christ. Over the past several years hundreds of people have come to know Christ as their Savior during block party events.
In the planning and preparation of one of these event, the most useful resource is prayer. Block party trailers and equipment are tools that God has furnished to share the gospel. People, along with churches, have grown spiritually as well as numerically because of the passion for this ministry. It is an easy and productive ministry that you and your church can become involved in.
