Children’s ministry has the power to change the lives of kids and families. Unfortunately, it’s not always clear that the work a person does with kids is really making a lasting difference. In fact, research over the past decade has revealed an alarming lack of long-term growth as children progress through their faith communities.
Written by Awana Ministry Catalyst Dan Lovaglia, Relational Children’s Ministry seeks to reverse this trend by equipping children’s ministry leaders with practical tools to disrupt the status quo approach to discipleship with children and realign their ministries for greater long-term impact. Ministry leaders will:
• Learn how to relate intentionally to kids and families by putting five discipleship invitations modeled by Jesus into practice.
• Explore practical approaches to realign their children’s ministry for a new trajectory by hitting three “reset buttons” to ensure long-term discipleship is embedded.
• Encounter examples of disruptive disciple-makers in action and learn key principles that can be translated into their own ministry context.
