Children's  Ministries

God has put a passion in my heart to see kids come to know Christ and to see their lives transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit.  I have worked with children of various ages for over 20 years and I am persuaded that more than ever before, they need to experience the love, compassion and stability of caring church leaders.  

We as children's ministers can make a difference in the lives of children as we value, support and teach them what it means to become a "Christ-follower".  

Barna research reveals that 64% of people accept Christ as Savior before the age of 18 yrs.  The likelihood of them becoming Christian after age 18 drops drastically.  

In understanding the importance of reaching people in their childhood and youth, it is imperative that we intentionally reach out to children and purposefully seek to give them a firm foundation on the truths of God's Word.  Children also need to come to understand the spiritual gifts that God has given to each of them.  It is our desire to provide support, encouragement and effective resources to equip and enable children's ministry workers to disciple this upcoming generation of young people.

Our vision is:


"To ReachTeach and Mentor children to LiveMove and

 Become Christ's followers."
