"If you want a place to cast nets that strain from the weight when you pull in your catch, march your evangelistic hind parts into your elementary age experience and share Jesus with the same amount of passion as you do to adults."
Gina goes on to say that she is not usally this intense, but is "just ruthlessly passionate that my 8-year old son is a walking Temple filled with the Holy Spirit. That he received power when the Holy Spirit came upon him and he is a witness to Jesus.

Children's Ministry is more than just child care! It is more than just giving parents the opportunity to worship. It is even more than just "preparing them for the future." They can and should be making an impact RIGHT NOW. When you are interacting with them, help them to understand that God has given them power to impact the world around them - however little it may be.
