Children Ministries is an integral program in the Seventh-day Adventist Church
Children Ministries is an integral program in the Seventh-day Adventist Church. It has a dual role.
- It trains adults to understand and educate children to adhere to biblical teachings.
- It provides opportunities for young people to participate in outreach programs and witnessing.
As adults instill Seventh-day Adventist beliefs and traditions in the children, they are inspired to model exemplary life traits as disciples of Christ. Ellen White states in Child Guidance p.163, “No higher work was ever committed to mortals than the shaping of character. Children are not only to be educated, but trained as well; and who can tell the future of a growing child, or youth? Let the greatest care be bestowed upon the culture of your children. One child, properly disciplined in the principles of truth, who has the love and fear of God woven through the character, will possess a power for good in the world that cannot be estimated.”
