This weekend I’ll have the privilege of baptizing a fourth-grader who attends our church. She loves Jesus with all her heart. In fact, she recently started a Bible club on her own called “That’s the Spirit.” She chose the name to reflect how God’s Spirit is working in her life.
When she was 3 years old and the family wasn’t attending church, this precious girl asked to go. Finally her mother succumbed to her daughter’s pleas and took her to church. After a few years, the family was reached and their lives were changed...and it all began with God working in the heart of a preschooler.
Studies show that we become much of who we are in our preschool years. A child’s spiritual formation begins in this critical, formative stage of life. We must be equipped and passionate about preschool ministry!
This book is all about helping you reach and minister to preschoolers and their families. The strategies, ideas, and philosophies you’re about to read flow from hands-on preschool ministry experience. We’ve seen them work, and we believe they can work for your ministry as well. Go through this book with your team. Have open discussions and strategize together about how to take your preschool ministry to a new level.
A healthy, growing preschool ministry is a great indicator of a church that’s healthy and growing. To put it plainly...a turbocharged preschool ministry will result in a turbocharged church and turbocharged families.
We thank God for you and your heart for preschoolers and their families. May he infuse your life and ministry with a fresh touch, new vision, and creative strategies. We believe with you that your best days of preschool ministry are just around the corner!
