We want to raise faithful children. But are churches today helping to fulfill that mission? Or do our children's ministries look more like entertaining babysitting services than places where true spiritual formation happens?

Beckwith helps ministers and parents create ministries that capture children's imaginations, not just to keep them occupied, but to live as citizens of the kingdom of God. She asks big questions, such as:
  • What if we taught children how the stories of God, church history, the local community, and the child intersect and speak to one another?
  • What if children's ministry was less about downloading information into kids' heads and more about leading them into these powerful, compelling stories?
In addition to providing theological reasons for formational children's ministry, this book offers practical examples of how Beckwith and other practioners are implementing a formational model.

If you're ready to create a place where children truly feel a part of God's story, where they don't just learn information but live it, this book is your first step.
