Guarding and proclaiming the unchanging truth in a changing world

Youth and Children’s Ministry

Network Statement

From the nomadic tribes of Kenya to the cities of America and all points in between, the vision of the Youth and Children’s Ministry Network is to see raised up a generation of mature, life-long disciple-making disciples of Jesus. 

This will happen when we lift the profile, the priority, the worth and necessity of youth and children’s ministry among our church leaders. Youth and children’s ministry is not baby-sitting, it is gospel evangelism and intergenerational discipleship, with older people investing in the lives of younger people, just like Paul did with Timothy.

We want to raise the profile of young person’s ministry across the world, so that out of thousands upon thousands of bible-based, Jesus-honouring churches, we will see emerge a generation of mature, life-long, disciple-making disciples of the Lord Jesus.
