We want to connect kids to God and others by teaching them who they are in Christ and how to reach their community through ministry.
Going to church is really important in the spiritual development of a child. It gives them a place to learn about God and experience authentic community with other children and adults. Church is important, but where a child’s spiritual development is concerned, it’s not the most important place. The most important place is the home. Josh McDowell shared from his research that the number one spiritual influence in the home is mom and dad, not the church or children’s minister. So we highly recognize this and want to support families in the growth of their children. Our ministries are designed to partner with, not replace, parents in the discipleship of children.
