A step-by-step guide to building a strong children's ministry that is a vital part of the church. People know they are called to children's ministry when they get goose bumps and butterflies from something a kid says or an idea that they know will communicate the gospel to children. Building Children's Ministry provides the practical information to transform those feelings and that calling into a successful children's ministry that is integrated into the life of the congregation. The book is divided into topical chapters, including:
- Getting the support of the pastor and the congregation
- Statements of purpose
- Budgets and fundraising
- Recruiting and keeping volunteers
- Safety and security
- Discipline and appropriate policies
- Choosing and evaluating curriculum
Building Children's Ministry is a practical guide through the challenging (but exciting) steps between recognizing the need for children's ministry and creating a program that ministers to children and their families.
