Bringing children to wholeness and fruitfulness
Children are the least evangelized people groups of the world, yet also the most receptive to the Gospel. The church, in partnership with families, has the privilege to prepare our children to be the movers and shakers of God’s kingdom. By the age of 5, a child’s lifelong concept of God and worldview have been formed. By the age of 14, they are the most receptive to God. We have this window of opportunity to reach children into God’s kingdom NOW. Thus, from a young age, we desire to shape their worldview and perspective of God with a biblical framework, praying they will individually respond to follow Jesus faithfully and obediently.
