Many childrens ministries are a flurry of activity, run by dedicated volunteers and staff who put in long hours and work hard for the good of the children and parents they serve. Yet despite good intentions, many childrens ministries today are not effective. They lack purpose and intentionality.
A twenty-five year veteran of childrens ministry in the local church, pastor Steve Adams has ministered to families in multiple churches, from tiny church plants to his present position at Saddleback Church. In this book, Steve applies the revolutionary insights of the Purpose Driven Church to childrens ministry and leads readers on a journey of discovery, showing them how to develop an intentional ministry process that moves children toward spiritual health while building a healthy ministry environment for those who work with kids. You will learn how to ask and answer five simple but powerful questions:
- Why are we on this journey?
- Where are you and where are you going?
- Who are we trying to reach?
- How will we move our children towards spiritual health?
- What are the essential elements necessary for the journey?
There is no single key to a successful childrens ministry, nor is there only one way that works for everyone. But there is a proven process you can follow and Steve shows how childrens ministries all over the world are reaching their God-given potential by discovering their biblical purpose, avoiding the traps of frustration and burnout.
Steve Adams serves as the childrens pastor at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, CA. For 25 years, Steve has mentored childrens ministry leaders all over the world and currently leads a dynamic staff who serves seven California campuses and three international campuses. Steve authentically communicates his passion for childrens ministry through his blog and podcast "More Than Puppets." He lives in Orange County with his wife, Stephanie, and their two sons, Tyler and Matt.
