Children’s Ministries

Statement of Purpose

Children’s 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
