A Purpose Driven Approach to Lead Kids toward Spiritual Health
Format: Paperback

Availability: In stock

Quick Overview:

Children’s Ministry on Purpose guides children’s ministry leaders on a journey of discovery to find fresh vision and to lay a new foundation for their ministry. It equips them to measure the health of the ministry and make needed changes by answering five simple but powerful questions.

Many children’s ministries are a flurry of activity, run by dedicated volunteers and staff who put in long hours and work hard for the good of the children and parents they serve. Yet despite good intentions, many children’s ministries today are not effective. They lack purpose and intentionality.

A twenty-five year veteran of children’s ministry in the local church, pastor Steve Adams has ministered to families in multiple churches, from tiny church plants to his present position at Saddleback Church. In this book, Steve applies the revolutionary insights of the Purpose Driven Church to children’s ministry and leads readers on a journey of discovery, showing them how to develop an intentional ministry process that moves children toward spiritual health while building a healthy ministry environment for those who work with kids. You will learn how to ask and answer five simple but powerful questions:

  • Why are we on this journey?
  • Where are you and where are you going?
  • Who are we trying to reach?
  • How will we move our children towards spiritual health?
  • What are the essential elements necessary for the journey?

There is no single key to a successful children’s ministry, nor is there only one way that works for everyone. But there is a proven process you can follow and Steve shows how children’s ministries all over the world are reaching their God-given potential by discovering their biblical purpose, avoiding the traps of frustration and burnout.

Review by Maddy
Overall Rating
I would recommend this book to anyone in ministry- Children's pastor, director, volunteer, intern or to the lead pastor as well! This is not just an amazing approach to children's ministry, but since it follows Pastor Rick's purpose driven approach to church, it is a beautiful example of how that approach can apply to every area of your church. My co- ministry worker and I are currently reading through each chapter and using the online discussion questions to lead us in conversation of how we can grow as leaders and how our ministry can grow into everything God wants it to be. If you have a heart for seeing the next generation flourish in the church and for seeing Christianity not go extinct, this book is for you! Even if you don't have the heart, Steve Adam's passion is contagious and you will make your heart beat fast for children's ministry! (Posted on 11/28/2017)
