igniting passion for mission among children who have never heard of the Good News of Jesus
Many years ago now I started writing down the assemblies I was creating and using in the schools I was visiting on a regular basis with my work as primary schools worker in Lancashire for Scripture Union. I was losing track of which assemblies I was using where, and realising that sometimes I could actually repeat some assemblies as the theme reappeared in other places. So i started writing them down, and using the tags to be able to remember what i had done where.
Then people started finding the posts I was doing, so I started making it a more useful site based on Youth and Children’s ministry as a whole.
I am now an ordained pioneer minister for the Church of England, setting up fresh expressions of church.
I am called to lead young people children in the dance of worshipping Jesus, helping building church for young people and children, and transforming the nations. There’s a whole load of theology behind that, but right now, lets just let it be what it is. I hope to inspire both children and leaders so that their hearts are set of fire by the power of the Holy Spirit and encourage mission among youth and children.
My aim is not just to produce new resources and outlines, though there will be some, but also to help children to discover Jesus for themselves, and provide support for youth and children’s leaders to become disciples making disciples; make great use of the resources they already have; and discover the plans which God has for them to lead children in their church.
More than anything else, email me ( andy[at]kidzministry.org ), or facebook me (via the group page) and tell me what you would like writing about or ideas. I’ll see what I can do!
Every blessing with your ministry
