Children's Discipleship

The purpose statement drives the attitudes and actions of the staff and volunteers of the GBR Children’s Discipleship producing visible fruit that is summarized in the four statements given below. This visible fruit is made manifest in the relationships that are produced in the classroom; the gospel centered truth that is proclaimed and modeled in the classroom; the love andsafety that is the hallmark of the presence of the Holy Spirit; and finally, in the heart-felt desire to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to the community around us.

  • To build Christ-centered relationships within each classroom: children with children, children with adults and adults with adults. (And the congregation of those who believed were of one heart and soul… Acts 4:32)
  • To faithfully teach and model gospel truth from the Scriptures. (We will not hide them from their descendants; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. Psalm 78:4)
  • To create a place of love and safety where children can discover and begin to develop their God given gifts. (Thou art my hiding place and myshield; I wait for Thy word. Psalm 119:114)
  • To bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to our neighbors through a yearly, Bible-based Vacation Bible School program. (But Jesus said, “Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belong to such as these.” Matthew 19:14)
