3 keys for life-changing children’s ministry

The adage, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” is true! Similarly, “All play and no work makes Jill a lazy girl.” Some children receive an overdose of sports, TV, school, video games, or even church. Few Christian kids experience the energizing vitality that takes place when their minds, hearts, and bodies are stretched to reach their full potential.

Achieving balance is the key to a child’s overall development. Even as a child, Jesus kept things in balance. One simple Bible verse summarizes His childhood: He grew intellectually, physically, spiritually, and socially (Luke 2:52). Balanced discipleship links three dimensions: growth in knowledge, in character, and in conduct. Children must learn to embrace all three.

These three pursuits will help you build balanced, lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ:
1) Know God intimately: help your child develop a reservoir of Bible knowledge.
2) Love God passionately: practice displaying Christ-like character in every area of life.
3) Serve God selflessly: demonstrate faithful conduct that honors God and helps people.

Disciples who reach their peak potential grow in all three dimensions. DiscipleLand’s family of resources forms a comprehensive Children’s Discipleship System™ – an intentional, relational, transformational process to help you grow disciples for life.
