Ministry Description

Childrens' Ministries Department
Christ’s mandate to feed the lambs (John 21:15) and to let the children come to Him (Mark 10:13,14) commissions the Church to evangelize children and to nurture their spiritual growth.
The Department of Children’s Ministries is committed to equipping, facilitating, coordinating, broadening and deepening of the Church’s spiritual nurture of children, in order to draw them into a close relationship with Christ and commitment to the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
“Too much importance cannot be placed upon the early training of children. The lessons learned, the habits formed, during the years of infancy and childhood, have more to do with the formation of the character and the direction of the life than have all the instruction and training of after years.”—MH 380
The mission of the Children’s Ministries Department is to nurture children into a loving, serving relationship with Jesus
