About Children’s Ministry Basics
Jesus and His love for children is the focus of Children’s Ministry Basics. Because Jesus loves children this blog is about ministry to children anywhere and everywhere. And more. It’s about what we should do to nurture children’s faith formation, help them live for Jesus, and support them in their journey with Him.
While the articles are far-ranging in scope, they’re narrowly focused on Jesus and His unfathomable, indescribable, and unrelenting love for children. One of the premises undergirding the writing of Children’s Ministry Basics is that good theology usually leads to good practice. So you’ll find the Scriptures and sound theology integrated into the content. The blog also analyzes and critiques existing practices and paradigms. The critiques challenge the status quo, suggest alternative views, and aim for the renewal of children’s ministry. Why do we need to renew children’s ministry? Because children’s ministry, in many instances, has lost sight of Jesus and must be restored to Him.
