Gospel Centered Kids Ministry
How the Gospel Will Transform Your Kids, Your Church, Your Community, and the World
WHO: Brian Dembowczyk, managing editor of The Gospel Project.
HE SAYS: “The gospel is no longer being seen as merely a five-minute explanation of how to become a Christian; it is being taught as the sustaining foundation for what a relationships with Jesus looks like.”
THE BIG IDEA: “The story of Jesus interacting with the Emmaus disciples provides an outline for what a gospel-centered kids ministry looks like.”
Part 1, “When the Gospel Is in the Margins,” looks at current statistics that show young adults are rapidly leaving the church. Part 2, “Gospel-Centered Teaching,” advocates the hope and importance of the gospel in our lives.
Part 3, “Gospel-Centered Transformation,” explores the beauty in the gospel message while Part 4, “Gospel-Centered Mission,” asks if kids are the church of tomorrow.
The book concludes with “Gospel-Centered Leaders,” which outlines what a kids ministry leader should look like, and “Gospel-Centered Parents,” which reinforces the idea that gospel teaching begins in the home.
