Targeted ministry to children under the age of 13 is the first building block in faith formation. However, very few of our local churches have a minister on staff specifically for children. You, as a Director of Children, help to fill this gap.
Children of the 21st century are faced with many pressures and influences that traditionally were not experienced at such young ages. This is why we believe children’s ministry is more than teaching the history, doctrines and usages of the A.M.E. Zion Church. Children need to be equipped to make wise choices when dealing with the issues that confront their lives every day. This handbook offers basic guidance on how to facilitate effective religious instruction in today’s society. We hope you will find the information valuable as you continue to inspire, encourage and teach Zion’s children.
Thank you for your continued support and prayers of this ministry. Special thanks to Dr. Helen Scott-Carter who laid the foundation for VARICK’S CHILDREN and trained us to carry on the work.
Yours in Christ,
