In 1971, I was blessed with three children. By then they were, respectively, three, eighteen months, and a few weeks old. One afternoon, when all three were taking their naps, I sat at the kitchen table having my daily devotions. In a short moment, or so it seemed, a dreadful fear came upon me…
…What would happen should my children
grow up not knowing the Triune God?
… I begged God to teach me how to
nurture my children to walk into eternity with Him.
I could have never dreamed of the path the Triune God would take me on as He guided me through the nurturing of my own three children. On that day when I called out to Him I was only thinking of my own children. Little did I know the plans He had for me.
This blog is about the Vision of Children’s Ministry that I believe the Lord gave me.
Who do you want your children to be when they are 40? (Spiritually, Mentally, Emotionally, Physically, Socially) Put up Post Its and brainstorm with your spouse, friends, fellow Children’s Ministry Directors/Pastors.
What needs to happen in their lives today for that to happen? Each page of the Blog will take you to posts to help you think through what your child(ren) needs today to walk with the Triune God into eternity. Each child is different, each church is different, there can be no cookie cutter answers. Hopefully what the Lord showed me, for my own children and then for the churches I served, will lead you to insights of what your own children or what the children in your ministry needs.
