Child Discipleship Drives the Future of the Church

Are we adequately preparing today’s kids to engage the culture and lead the church of the future?

With the rapid changes taking place within our culture, child discipleship has become the most crucial conversation in the church. More and more Children’s Ministry Leaders, Senior Pastors, NextGen Leaders and Parents are asking these questions.

Let’s unite together at the Child Discipleship Forum as we collaborate, pray, and learn together. This is a critical moment for us to shape the future of the church and make the greatest generation of disciples the world has ever seen.

Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.

Matthew 19:14
