Children’s Ministry

Designation: NXGN 3063

This course considers the importance of children’s ministry in the local church, as well as different models and philosophies, including the Biblical and theological rationale for each. Students are challenged to think purposefully about children’s ministry, and to examine ways to launch new children’s ministries in a variety of settings and demographics. This course explores ways to support and reach families, ways to cultivate intergenerational ministry opportunities, and ways to support children with diverse needs and from different backgrounds. The intention is for students to develop practical ministry skills for initiating and leading children’s ministry in today’s culture.
