Children's Ministry Around the World - DRC, Africa

Today on our little "trip" to see what Children's Ministry - and life - is like in other places around the world, we will "visit" the DRC in Africa.
The Democratic Republic of Congo, also called DR Congo, DRC or the DROC, is located in Central Africa. It's the second largest country in Africa in terms of size and the 11th largest in the world. The Congo has a population of about 69.4 million, ranking it 19th in the world (World Population Review). The DRC is considered one of the two “lungs of the world”; second only to the Amazon, because of its large area of forests. The DRC is home to many types of animals including the rare and endangered Okapi, Bonobo and White Rhinos (Wiki). While it is one of the richest countries in the world for the resources it has, it is one of the poorest in regards to the poverty experienced by the people of the DRC.

Children's Ministry Around the World - Côte d’Ivoire, Africa

With Christmas drawing near, I thought it might be helpful to take a look at what Children's Ministry looks like around the world. It is so easy for us to focus upon our families and our ministries and not stop to see how blessed we are and how we need to pray for and help as we are able, those around the world.

So today - and each day until I work through my list of countries - I will take you with me on a little "visit" to see what Children's Ministry - and life - is like in a different place around the world - beginning today in Côte d’Ivoire,  Africa.

Equip the Parents & Grandparents So They Tell This Important Message

There are many important messages for you to equip the parents and grandparents in your church so they are able to hand them down to the children they love, but one of them definitely is the truth of how God is good, His love lasts forever and He is always faithful; He was faithful yesterday, He is faithful today and He will absolutely be faithful tomorrow.

Why Grandparents Matter - Engage Them in Your Children's Ministry!

I sincerely believe grandparents need to focus on passing on a heritage of faith to their grandchildren. I believe with all my heart it matters for us to be intentional when it comes to handing down our faith to the grandchildren given to us by God. There are reasons I believe this - some of them are . . .

Be a Seed Planter!


Something incredibly fabulous happened in my family on June 11, 2012. . . I received a phone call I’ll never forget which let me know about this amazing thing which happened. My three year old grandson, Josiah got on the phone and said, “I’m part of God’s family now, grandma!” I can assure you it was the best news I could ever receive! The angels in Heaven were certainly celebrating, but I can guarantee you they could not have possibly celebrated more than this grandma! :^)

Well, all this got me to thinking . . . what could possibly be a more wonderful thing than for a parent to lead their child to Jesus? I can’t think of anything more wonderful! My daughter-in-law was talking with Josiah and he said he wanted to be part of God’s family, so she had the great privilege and joy of leading her sweet son to Jesus!
