Product Description

Big or small, your children's ministry can ignite in young hearts faith that grows and spreads in ways you never dreamed. It happens all the time at Willow Creek's Promiseland, and it can happen at your church. Sunday morning can be absolutely the most exciting, fun-filled time of the week for children, a Great kid-Venture that impacts them for the rest of their lives.

Telling the story of Promiseland from its early days till today and offering glimpses of successful children's ministries across the country, Promiseland Director Sue Miller shares insights that can reshape your whole approach to children's ministry and cast a new vision for everyone involved: church leaders, parents and above all, kids. Gleaning from twenty-eight years of hands-on ministry experience, here is practical guidance to help address your most vital concerns and challenges: how to grab and hold kids' interest, how to balance evangelism and discipleship, six specific ministry values that meet kid's needs, secrets to recruiting, training, and leading volunteers.

Publisher's Description

Promiseland is Willow Creek’s highly successful children’s ministry. Using examples from Promiseland and churches of all sizes around the country, this book provides step by step guidance and creative application exercises to help churches develop a thriving children’s ministry—one that strives to be the best hour of every kid’s week. Included are Scripture-based principles and practical resources for church staff members and volunteers who agree with the critical role children’s ministry plays in a local church. Making Your Children’s Ministry the Best Hour of Every Kid’s Week, based on twenty-eight years of experience at Willow Creek, explains four ministry foundations: Mission, Vision, Values, and Strategy. Content includes: Detailed answers to questions facing every children’s ministry: • What does Jesus expect from children’s ministry? • How can we evangelize lost kids and disciple saved kids at the same time, and should we? • How do we engage kids so they don’t become bored? • How do we get better at recruiting and leading volunteers? • How can our ministry be a safe place for children? • Six specific ministry values that address the needs of today’s children • Practical first steps for ministries that want to get serious about change • Clear indicators of success in children’s ministry

    Not the best theologically, but I purchased a copy for everyone involved in our Sunday School ministry and set up a date for them to discuss their reactions. It really helped them think out of the box and create an ongoing process of continually looking to make our program better.
