Teaching children about Jesus is an important task, and with these five principles, it can be a fun and engaging experience that the children in your ministry will never forget.

The Bible is clear that Jesus is the central figure of our faith, and that all of our teachings and practices should be centered on Him. We are called to make disciples of all nations, and this starts with teaching children about Jesus and His teachings. Matthew 19:14 says, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

We are called to make disciples of all nations, and this starts with teaching children about Jesus and His teachings.

So, make Jesus the star of the show! Keep Him at the center of your ministry, and in everything you do, let His teachings guide you. By doing so, the children in your ministry will feel His love and presence in their lives.

While keeping Jesus at the center of your ministry is essential, you also need to make your lessons interactive and engaging. Kids these days have a lot going on, so use props, games, crafts, and other fun activities to help them understand and remember the lessons. The more you can get them moving and thinking, the more they’ll enjoy themselves and the more they’ll learn.

But don’t forget about the parents! Encourage them to get involved in whatever way they can — whether that’s attending events, volunteering, or just chatting with their kids about what they learned in church. By involving the parents, you’ll create a strong support system that will help reinforce the lessons and values you’re trying to instill in the children.

Community is also important. Kids need to feel like they belong somewhere, and the more you can foster a sense of community within your ministry, the more they’ll feel like they’re part of something special. Encourage them to make friends, work together on projects, and participate in service projects that help their community. By doing so, they’ll develop a sense of purpose and belonging that will inspire them to live out the teachings of Jesus in their everyday lives.

Teaching children about Jesus is an adventure that can be made easy with these principles. Keep Jesus at the center of your ministry, make your lessons interactive and engaging, involve parents, foster community, and inspire the children to live out the teachings of Jesus in their everyday lives. By following these principles and aligning everything we do with the teachings of the Bible, we can create a dynamic and inspiring children’s church ministry that is grounded in biblical truth and that helps children grow in their faith and love for Jesus. So, go forth and spread the good news — the kids are waiting for you!
