Families on Mission: Providing Socks and Gloves to a Local Shelter

On cold days, warm hands and feet surely do feel good! Among the things we take for granted are a drawer full of clean socks and a pair of gloves in our jacket pockets. Have you ever been without these? I don't think I have.

Getting to Know Lottie

Let’s face it. You know who Lottie Moon is. You know what the offering is all about. You know why it is important to pray for our missionaries. But, you’re reading this because you want other people to have the same urgency about these things as you.

Understanding Development Makes Effective Planning

Girls in Action, Royal Ambassadors, and Children in Action cover a wide age-range of children and stages of development.

Missions and Learning Styles: Full Body Missions

You may find that your missions group is full of children who cannot sit still. This may be a reflection of their learning styles. They may be kinesthetic or hands-on learners. These learners need to move, act out, and touch to experience and process new material.

Incorporating Learning Styles in Missions Education

Every child is different. All children have different likes and dislikes, different levels of ability and education, and different learning preferences. The children we teach may be visual learners, auditory learners, or kinesthetic learners.

Toward Deeper Learning: Asking the Right Questions

Families on Mission: Volunteering at a Local Food Bank

As a youth pastor, I am always looking for opportunities to include families in ministry. Family involvement is crucial in the spiritual growth of children. Part of that spiritual growth begins when children begin to think with a missions mindset—from inward to outward thinking.

Malnutrition was a foreign concept to me, literally. I never skipped a meal, so I certainly didn’t know what it was like to be truly hungry.
