“The Children Everywhere resources have been created by people working with children all around the world. The goal of this Children Everywhere Challenge is to guide members of a local church body through a process of expanding their understanding of children and how God sees them, considering the things which impact children, and exploring new possibilities in ministry with children.”
These sessions are designed to be used with small groups (12-15) of people from a local church. They are most powerful when they involve a diverse selection of people such as pastors, children’s workers, church members, schoolteachers, parents, youth and children (with adult assistance). The broader the selection of people, the richer the discussions and ideas will be. Children will add a unique perspective as they often see things very differently to adults.
There are 7 sessions of the study and you can download a booklet for the small group + a booklet for the facilitator from the website for free. These materials are available in English, French, Spanish, Hindi and Portuguese.
We hope you can benefit from it.
