Children's ministry is being pushed and pulled by education models, statistical analysis, growth techniques, cultural change and technological advancements. But with the weight of all these influences, little attention is given to what ought to be the most important influence in molding the shape of children's ministry - the Word of God. Whether your children's ministry is in your home or in your church, the purpose of this book is to enable you to build a children's ministry that is rock-solid - modeled up scriptural teachings: Each chapter of this book starts with a Scripture passage- a "rock" for your foundation. The Scripture passage specifically refers to children or ministering to them. Each chapter contains a thorough discussion of implications and applications.
