» Ten Traits of Children’s Ministry Leaders Who Run a Good Race for God
Dick Crider, DiscipleLand Field Trainer, shares his wisdom: In more than thirty years of ministry, I have known children’s ministry leaders who crash and burn after a few years and I’ve known those who run the race for 30, 40, and even 50 years.

The following article by Tony Kummer is timely and practical. In most churches, finding volunteers for children’s ministry is a constant struggle. Most children’s ministers spend hours recruiting for Sunday school, church nursery, vacation Bible school, and other ministry programs. This shouldn’t be the case. If people really understood the spiritual blessings of serving God’s kids, we would need to start a volunteer wait list. Children’s Ministry is one of the most important things your church will ever do. In this post I will share my 6 favorite reasons why people should minister to children. Why You Should Serve In Children’s Ministry

IFCA International's interest in enhancing the strength of the Church by equipping for and encouraging toward ministry partnerships to accomplish Great Commission objectives extends even to the level of the children in our churches.  Today's children are tomorrow's Church leaders and we believe it is essential to begin at an early age to prepare them for that responsibility.  Strong foundations, laid in the lives of children, will provide a solid basis for carrying on Great Commission ministry in the decades ahead.

With that in mind, we are pleased to have DiscipleLand as a Great Commission partner in ministry.  We heartily recommend the materials they provide for children's ministry in the local church.
