Why Kids?

Why serve in children’s ministry?  Here are a few reasons from Karl Bastian at Kidology:

1. Children are the ripest spiritual field in the Kingdom. This was God’s design. Even adults, Jesus said, ought to “come as children.” It was God’s plan that faith begin as a child. When it doesn’t, there is always a high price to pay.

2. The ripest field is being harvested by the least equipped and trained. While there is a growing number of professionally trained children’s ministry leaders, the VAST majority of those who minister to children are parents and volunteers thrust into that role with little or no training and with meager resources.

3. The Internet is the most strategic and cost-effective way to bridge this gap. We can impact an unlimited number of those who reach and teach children 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. And we are!

4. Because Jesus Loves Children and those on the front lines reaching them.
