More importantly…

Children’s ministry is ministering to a person at the most critical time in their life.  – Dale Hudson

If a child leaves knowing Jesus loves him because you’ve loved him, you’re doing something right. – Klista Storts

You may speak but a word to a child, and in that child there may be slumbering a noble heart which shall stir the Christian Church in years to come. – Charles Spurgeon

Families, churches and parachurch ministries must recognize that primary window of opportunity for effectively reaching people with the good news of Jesus’ death and resurrection is during the pre-teen years. It is during those years that people develop their frames of reference for the remainder of their life – especially theologically and morally. Consistently explaining and modeling truth principles for young people is the most critical factor in their spiritual development. – Barna Research article, “Evangelism Is Most Effective Among Kids”

The power for good or evil that resides in a little child is great beyond all human calculation. A child rightly trained may be a world-wide blessing, with an influence reaching onward to eternal years. – George Muller

I am ready to serve
