Tutor Courses


The DNA of Petra Institute is to train for multiplication. By equipping tutors who train others to train yet others, we increase the workforce of our partners, giving many more children the opportunity to meet and follow Christ.

For each of our courses and workshops at Petra Institute, we have a tutor training. In this training, facilitators (called tutors) are equipped to present the specific course. Normally these courses are scheduled on demand from our partners.

    Course Testimonials

    I learnt how to build relationships with both children and children’s workers. Children’s ministry is no more just about conveying knowledge; within deeper relationships, faith is transferred. Our children’s workers share that they have received life skills, which impact life on all levels – even outside of children’s ministry.”
