“If I could relive my life, I would devote my entire ministry to reaching children for God.” -D.L. Moody

It’s no secret that the church and home have the best opportunity to secure faith in the next generation when they have shared goals regarding a child’s discipleship journey. What a powerful movement could be created if we all worked together with the same end in mind.

Eight Goals for Kids

What if churches and homes across the nation would focus their attention on helping every child who is a follower of Christ attain eight simple goals before they transition out of children’s ministry?

Many churches are becoming more strategic by having leaders of all age groups develop transitional benchmarks and goals together. This is a healthy approach to creating lifelong followers of Christ. In other churches, leaders see the need for goals but don’t know where to begin. Regardless of where your church lands on the process of creating goals or outcomes, the list that follows may help shape perspectives for some and give a starting point for others.

Every child who is a follower of Christ should become…

1. Powerful in Prayer
2. Responsive in Worship
3. Biblically Fluent
4. Spirit Empowered
5. Actively Serving
6. Bold in Faith
7. Giving Selflessly
8. Living Like Christ
