Children’s Ministries in Western Australia

 

Children’s Ministries in Western Australia exists to equip, empower and energize children’s ministry leaders so that they can expand the Kingdom of God. We believe that children are a crucially important part of our church, and with 71% of believers deciding to follow Jesus before the age of 14 (Barna), it’s an age group that cannot be overlooked. We are passionate about equipping communities of faith, families, schools, and churches to embrace the importance of children and assist them on their discipleship journey. Here you will find contacts and resources for everyone to help ensure our children are actively involved in corporate worship, discipleship,
community, and faith expression.

Adventurers

A christian activity-based program run by local Adventist Churches for children aged four to nine years old, designed to support parents/caregivers and provide Bible-based learning and new skills for children. 

Faith Shaper

Current statistics overwhelmingly reveal that young adolescents are leaving the church at increasing rates, so it’s important that we make children a priority. In an attempt to reduce these statistics in Western Australia, we’ve adopted ‘Faith Shaper’ – a framework designed to help churches, schools, families and individuals nurture children in their faith journey.

Resources

Spiritual Parent Coaching App
As parents, you are the key spiritual leader in your child’s life and you have the greatest influence on their spiritual formation. The Spiritual Parent Coaching App is a free resource based on seven different elements of children’s lives that are necessary for their faith to grow. These seven elements are directly based on the ‘Faith Shaper’ resource, but it’s specifically targeted at parents and the ‘home’ aspect of spiritual development. The app gives parents and grandparents of 0-14 year olds coaching questions around each faith-forming element to prompt them with practical steps they can implement at home.
5 Ways to Say 'I Love You'
We believe that we were created by a loving God, so it is only natural that children need to feel loved in order to best develop and succeed. But if you and your child speak different love languages, your display of love might get lost in translation – affecting your child’s attitude, behaviour, and development. This simple activity is based on Gary Chapman’s 5 love languages and we pray it help to build authentic relationships in your home. Download the PDF document by clicking the button on the right.
