Consulting for Your Parish

Just as we aim to meet every child where he/she is, we want to do that with every parish, too. If you’ve read the book and need more assistance or guidance to implement Love First, we would love to help. From phone or video calls to on-site visits with members of your parish, we are here to shine a light on the gifts your parish can offer today’s children.

Zoom Call

This is a great option for anyone implementing Love First for the first time. Easy to schedule, and easy to connect right away to get answers to your questions, brainstorm creative ways to use Love First, or discuss challenges specific to your parish.

Zoom calls are $75/hour. Contact us to schedule a time that works for you!

Teacher Training

This is a great option for parishes who are implementing Love First and want to provide extra assistance and guidance to teachers new to Love First — or even new to teaching! Tack on extra time to your visit for space assessments, meetings with ministry leaders, and getting answers to all your questions about implementing Love First in your community. Schedule your site visit below!

Depending on your parish’s needs, teacher trainings usually take 1.5 to 3 hours and cost approximately $250-400. To make the most of your visit, we highly recommend reading the book ahead of time.

To schedule your teacher training, or any custom consulting package, please contact us today.

What parishes are saying

Working with Colette has been wonderful!  Her insight, simplicity, and wisdom shines through her work. I think this curriculum is the wave of the future.  For our busy families, it is easy for kids to plug in whenever they get to church, and it’s often interconnected with what they are learning in school making Sunday School relevant to their everyday lives. The simplicity of starting with a mindfulness exercise and prayer sets the tone for the class, so that it is  meaningful, honest, and holy.

From my first visit to St. Barnabas to frequent check-ins from Colette, I have felt supported all along the way from people with the experience to give me meaningful feedback. It was particularly helpful to be able to see Love First in action at St. Barnabas and to have Colette come to my church to help me with big picture ideas as well as what might seem like minor details, such as the setup of classrooms. Colette is always a phone call away and has been able to help me plan things like our own Children’s Service. It’s been a joy to watch Love First grow, and to now be a part of it at Christ Church.
