Ministry to children is one of the most important parts of the church, if not the top priority. Without “the good news” being delivered by Children’s Ministry pastors, leaders and volunteers, the church would have a lot of ground to make up in leading people into relationship with Jesus. History shows that it is easier to bring a child to Christ than it is an adult.
Yet Children’s Ministry comes with questions that need sound answers in order to effectively minister to children. When we are given dreams and develop a passion for making a difference in the life of a child, we must meet those desires with actions. Actions that seek out and accomplish the how-to’s but also delivers effective ministry.
In author Tina Houser’s book, Building Children’s Ministry, she presents years of knowledge on how to bring both Biblical and practical application to the different avenues of Children’s Ministry. She dives into the different topics that develop leaders and children, including:
- How to lead with vision
- Gaining support from the church
- Choosing and evaluating curriculum
- Discipline and Policies
- Fundraising and Budgeting
This is a book that will complement any Children’s Ministry. Whether it is a new volunteer in Children’s Ministry or a seasoned pastor reading this book, it can be a tool that will bring leadership growth, strength in a team, and direction for the church.
