“Guard, through the Holy Spirit who dwells in us, the treasure which has been entrusted to you.”  2 Timothy 1:14 (NASB)

Why Is Kids' Ministry Important?

George Barna, one of the world’s leading statisticians said in his book Transforming Children into Spiritual Champions - Why Children Should Be Your Church’s #1 Priority, that by age nine, children's moral and spiritual foundations have already been established.

What does this mean for us as children’s pastors and leaders? If you want to have an impact on the next generation, then you must do it by the age of nine. Barna also states that a child's spiritual identity will be set by the age of thirteen: "We have a critical period of time to help these young people develop into spiritual champions. People that will know their Lord and Savior personally. People that will not run away from the church at a single offense or when hard times come.”
