Gospel Centered Kid’s Ministry

In Gospel-Centered Kids Ministry, the story of Jesus interacting with the Emmaus disciples provides an outline for what a gospel-centered kids ministry looks like: Gospel-centered teaching that points to Jesus in every session, gospel-centered transformation that positions the gospel to change a kid’s heart and then his behavior, and gospel-centered mission where kids join in on the big story of Jesus that continues to unfold.

Seven out of 10 kids will walk away from church after they turn 18. About five will return when they have families of their own, but two will never return. Clearly, something isn’t connecting with our kids. As kids ministry leaders, we need to take a hard look at what we are missing in our kids’ ministries and provide kids the one thing that will satisfy them and keep them connected to the church—the gospel.

Gospel-Centered Kids Ministry also addresses communicating with and encouraging gospel-centered leaders and parents as part of your ministry.
