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.

    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.
