Mission: To Empower The Next Generation to Make Disciples Who Make Disciples
Vision: To equip leaders to reach, disciple, and empower kids to fulfill God’s call to serve, minister, and be missionaries of the Gospel.
Family (Deuteronomy 6:1-8): Parents are the number one spiritual influence on the spiritual life of their children. Parents have an average of 3,000 hours each year with their children, whereas churches have approximately 300. We are committed to training and providing resources for families so that they can successfully disciple their children at home and participate in the Great Commission. Check out our parent training tools.
Discipleship (Matthew 28:19-20): Churches are called to fulfill the Great Commission by making disciples. Through proper training, teachers move from teaching knowledge of Scripture to being disciple-makers. “The role of discipleship is for the mentee, the one being discipled, to become a mentor; to multiply—make other disciples. In essence, the discipleship is designed for the player to become a coach.” (Robby Gallaty)
Ministry Involvement (Ephesians 4:11-13): Churches are called to equip the saints—including children—for ministry. The Holy Spirit has gifted every believer in the body of Christ, and these gifts bring purpose and identity, especially to children as they begin to grow in their faith. Through proper training, churches move children from being spectators to fully engaging them in the church’s ministry and the Great Commission.
Missions (Acts 1:8): Seventy percent of those who trust Christ internationally do so between the ages of 4 and 14. Through proper training, churches embrace the Acts 1:8 model for training children and students to be missionaries. Churches develop a strategic plan to reach their community and commission their kids to take part in sharing the Gospel message.
