Product Description

This book offers a vision of ministry that meets children where they are and gives them the tools to sustain faith into adulthood. Moving away from fun as the goal of children's ministry, Ivy Beckwith examines the culture in which children find themselves and offers ideas that will keep them engaged now while preparing them for what's to come. This is an excellent resource and a must for any children's pastor or worker that wants to reach the next generation. Within these pages, you'll discover ways to: develop family and intergenerational worship, use spiritual disciplines and ancient practices with children, worship effectively with preschoolers, create meaningful service projects for children and families, build positive peer communities, engage children as full participants in community. Plus, you'll travel to places and meet people who are changing children's ministry. Hear stories about what's working, what isn't, what issues are peering over the horizon, and ways to prepare for the future.
