Why Children's Ministry Matters
Children in your church and communities live in a world of technology, speed, space, completion, fear and insecurity. Children's workers face an awesome responsibility to meet the challenge of reaching today's children.
Childhood is a time of significant cognitive, emotional, physical and social development. As children try to understand this complex world they seek role models and security. What better place to find these than in the local church and its outreach programs! In order to meet these needs of children, the Children's Disciplemaking Team endeavors to equip ministry workers with the strategies needed to reach the unique needs of this age group. We realize they are not miniature adults. However, their learning capacity at this stage of life is tremendous. The desire to learn of God will never be greater. Time and resources must not be spared lest we miss this opportunity to see boys and girls won to Jesus Christ, become disciples, and an integral part of our local churches.
Christ modeled the importance of Children's Ministry as stated in Mark 10:13-16, "...Let the children come to me and do not hinder..."
Our Team seeks to provide information, encouragement, training, networking and resources to children's coordinators, workers and pastors.
We desire to:
Network with district children's coordinators
Encourage local children's workers and leaders
Sponsor area training events
Recommend quality children's disciplemaking curriculum
