What do you think is the value of the children’s ministry at your church? In your estimation is it a ministry that simply keeps the kids from tearing each other apart for an hour so parents can hear the sermon? Is it just baby-sitting or something more?
Here’s what John MacArthur said to his Children’s Ministry workers at one of their events last year:
…you (Children’s Ministry) are doing the greatest and most consistent evangelistic ministry this church has. This is the primary evangelistic emphasis in this church…You (Children’s Ministry) are an evangelistic force and in my mind you are the greatest evangelistic force we have at Grace Community Church.
