Children's Ministry

"The kingdom of heaven belongs to children. So how can we create a culture where children are not only singing or doing actions, but they're connecting with God, encountering God, hearing God's voice to enter the kingdom of heaven. You need to be humble like a child addressing the pride we sometimes have as adults. But the person of the Holy Spirit is available to all people, which includes children. There is no junior holy spirit in the kingdom. God pours out his spirit on children as well.

About your instructor

Ps Andrew Austin

Former Children's Pastor at Berwick Churches of Christ. Have you ever considered why God instituted family? What's Jesus opinion of the family? What role does the family have in society? God has designed the family and the role that the family and faith play in children's lives is critically important. My hope is that you find clarity into the important role family plays in society today.
