What's new for 2016-2017...

Thank you for supporting the WPA District Children's Missions Projects since it was introduced in our district.  From 2002 through 2016, donations from the yearly project have totaled $203,311.93.  We have helped children all over the world living in; Mongolia, Russia, Chile, Mali, Africa, Indonesia...purchase medical supplies, books, van, renovations, furnishings for schools, Sunday schools supplies brick and much more.  Your generous offerings are vital in helping to "Push Back the Darkness."  

When one project is completed, children in a different part of the world are suffering.  The Children's Mission Project for 2016-2017 is...Gateway to Hope.

Disaster struck Nepal on April 25, 2015, when a 7.8 magnitude earthquake rocked the country. In the village of Ghyangphedi, families lost possessions, homes, food, loved ones and their school.  From the three mission projects offered by the National Office, we chose to promote and support the Children in Nepal for our Children's Mission Project 2016-2017.   

Our mission is to help the village rebuild their school. We encourage all WPA District Churches to participate in the project...
"Gateway to Hope."

Please help the children of Nepal.

Why Children's Ministry Matters


Children in your church and communities live in a world of technology, speed, space, completion, fear and insecurity.  Children's workers face an awesome responsibility to meet the challenge of reaching today's children.

Childhood is a time of significant cognitive, emotional, physical and social development.  As children try to understand this complex world they seek role models and security.  What better place to find these than in the local church and its outreach programs!  In order to meet these needs of children, the Children's Disciplemaking Team endeavors to equip ministry workers with the strategies needed to reach the unique needs of this age group.  We realize they are not miniature adults.  However, their learning capacity at this stage of life is tremendous.  The desire to learn of God will never be greater.  Time and resources must not be spared lest we miss this opportunity to see boys and girls won to Jesus Christ, become disciples, and an integral part of our local churches.

Christ modeled the importance of Children's Ministry as stated in Mark 10:13-16, "...Let the children come to me and do not hinder..."

Our Team seeks to provide information, encouragement, training, networking and resources to children's coordinators, workers and pastors.

We desire to:
Network with district children's coordinators
Encourage local children's workers and leaders
Sponsor area training events

Recommend quality children's disciplemaking curriculum
