Christian Educator's Handbook on Children's Ministry: Reaching and Teaching the Next Generation by Robert J. Choun, Michael S. Lawson, Michael S. Lawson

Ministering to children is one of the most important tasks of the body of Christ. This comprehensive A-Z reference book is packed with information to help Christian educators understand and minister to children up to age twelve. After exploring the biblical and historical perspectives on why the church is called to minister to children, the authors provide specific suggestions for developing primary goals and objectives for children's programs. Entries are arranged alphabetically, and a directory gives information on relevant state conventions and conferences and national children's ministry organizations.
