Children's Ministry Task Force

Don't Go It Alone!

Anyone working in KidMin – those who have the call to love on and share the Good News with our churches littlest of ones – has felt alone at least at some point in their ministry.

We are here to come along side you and talk with you about Children’s Ministry in the church. We don’t want you to go it alone.

We are here to pray for you, support you, brainstorm with you and help in any way we can!

We desire to partner with and support congregations around Michigan as they strive to provide great opportunities and experiences for children as they grow and grapple with what it means to be a follower of Jesus!
