Why Christian Kids Rebel
Children’s Ministry workers and parents try their best to raise children in a nurturing spiritual environment. It is heart-breaking to see many of our children grow up and step away from their belief and embrace other lifestyle choices. In order to help our Next- Gen develop a vibrant faith early in life and stick with it on into adulthood, we have to understand what causes their spiritual rebellion, so that we can care and support rebellious ones and lead them back into a walk of faith.
Dance with Next Gen
The development of today’s young people are under great impact of postmodernism and culture. As a parent and a CM worker, we have to understand the holistic development (physiological, emotional, social and spiritual) of our Next-Gen and the world that they are living in so that we can provide support to them in all these aspects. This workshop aims to examine these areas from the perspectives of a child development and current culture so that we can help our young people to develop as a godly child of God.
