GCN’S MALACHI KIDS IS COMING TO THE US!
Before launching Malachi Kids Clubs across the 50 US states and 10 Canadian provinces, our desire is to partner with churches that want to try out our Church ~ Parent Partnership strategy and give valuable input that will help shape the future of children, youth, and family ministry in churches.
In 2018, Malachi Kids was field tested first in Tanzania, Burundi, Ethiopia, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Portugal, Guatemala, Fiji, and several restricted countries. The acceptance and early success of this local church ministry platform for discipleship exceeded our expectations. Now it’s time to give North American churches the opportunity to participate.
Global Children’s Network’s founder and CEO, Dr Jack Eggar states, “Our core purpose is to help churches make next generation disciples through a dynamic partnership between the church and home with pastors and parents. At the center of this special relationship is God’s Big Story, a compelling approach to engaging children and youth through the creative telling of Bible stories”. Dr Eggar goes on to say, “We then commission the children and teens to go and tell God’s stories to their parents and friends”.
Churches can choose for themselves to utilize Malachi Kids on Sunday morning for Sunday School, children’s church, or during the week. It can also be used by families in small groups. Malachi Kids begins with 97 Bible stories with user friendly leaders guides and parents guides for the home and can easily synchronize with local school’s fall and spring schedules.
If your church family is interested in field testing and shaping this new ministry offering, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We count it an honor to have you work with us in further designing this outstanding ministry for the many kids and teens that need their parents involved in their spiritual development.
