Our mission and heartbeat with Missio Kids is simple: we desire to disciple kids to know and love Jesus with their whole heart and to live their lives in a way that makes God known and brings Him alone the glory in everyday life.
We take this mission extremely important. We understand that this is a huge task that we as a children’s ministry cannot do on our own. Studies show that we have your kids for roughly 40 hours a year whereas in the home you the family have them for roughly 3000 waking hours a year. With these statistics in mind, this means our method of reaching this goal greatly changes. No longer can the home and children’s ministry be two separate functions but rather we join together as a team all with the same goal in mind to better impact kids’ lives.
On Sunday Mornings, we seek to create a safe and energetic environment in which all kids will be taught a gospel-centered lesson combined with scripture memory, games, art, music, and videos. We use The Gospel Project for Kids Curriculum which is a three year curriculum that walks through scripture to show kids that the Bible is not simply a collection of small stories but one large story that is all about Jesus. Each week we send kids home with a worksheet and story card that walks through the day's lesson and includes parent resources for discipleship in the home. (Here is a short video to show what The Gospel Project is all about: https://vimeo.com/123430346 )
Our mission and goal is simple but it is one of great need and importance. Our prayer at Missio Kids is that we would develop deep partnerships and lasting relationships with families and kids that create disciples, missionaries, worshippers and families who will radically change the world for Jesus sake in their everyday lives.
