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 at Children's Ministry Leader
My passion is seeing the lives of children transformed. I believe the best way to do that is to equip leaders in the local church to serve children, volunteers and parents to invest in the lives of children at church and in the home. That’s what we do here at Children’s Ministry Leader – equip leaders to create healthy Children’s & Family Ministry.
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.
