5 Essentials For Every Program In Children’s Ministry

5 Essentials For Every Program In Children’s Ministry

laughing-childrenProgram comes in all shapes and sizes. Weekend program. Midweek program. Special events. Children’s Ministry offers many variations.

As different as they are, however, I believe these 5 “essentials” should be part of every one of them. Every program should be:

1. Child-centered: safe, attractive & age-appropriate.

2. Application-oriented: easily understood & applied in practical ways in the child’s everyday life.

3. Relational: built on strong, positive & on-going adult/child relationships.

4. Creative: dynamic & attractive to children & incorporating many different forms of communication.

5. Fun: a place a child wants to come to & would be happy to invite their friends.

Founder of Children's Ministry Leader & Vice President of Global Resources at David C Cook
The most important thing to know about me is that I am blessed beyond measure to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, to have married way over my head to my wife, Michele, and that I have two incredible grown sons named Taylor and Garret.

I serve as the Vice President of Global Resources in the Global Mission department at David C. Cook.

I love what I do as it is the outflow of 25 years of ministry experience as Children’s, Family & Administrative Pastor, consultant, trainer, speaker and short-term missions leader.
