I am a big proponent of churches spending time, money, and energy to do ministry with kids. Being a father of three it is important to me that my kids love going to church and learning about God there. Of course I understand that it is primarily my responsibility to teach my kids about Christ, but it makes my job a whole bunch easy if I have an hour every week that I can relax and know my kids are being loved, taught, and delighted.

I see a monumental problem in churches today…when we consider that unchurched people are not being reached AND we combine that with the fact that MANY students that were raised in church walk away when they graduate high school…well, that’s a problem.
