Another short video to inspire your leadership team and congregation. But give your kids ministry leaders a sneak preview first. They already know how strategic is is to work with kids, and they’ll be encouraged and affirmed by it.

Children are being reached from every angle by political parties, other faiths, secularism, corporations and a myriad of other causes. Above all, the children of the world need to know Jesus. They need to know the truth of his claims, to experience a personal relationship with Him and to be equipped to follow and serve Him throughout their lives.

Here is an outline for a talk which could be used in a Family Service to help adults grasp the importance of children’s ministry, and to help children understand their value in the church community.

 

The proportions given in this example work for 20-30 children, but you can adjust to fit your group.
