The Rocky Mountain Conference is taking major steps to develop the ministries offered to children and families throughout our congregations. In a three-year process, the conference is partnering with Rev. Dr. Leanne Hadley, an expert in the area of Holistic Children’s Ministry, to provide training, visioning, mentoring and coaching to 19 congregations and help create vision, staffing, and implementation of holistic ministry to children unique to their own ministry setting.
The Children’s Ministry program includes two in-person training events each year, monthly web-based learning teams and personal phone calls and emails. The Children’s Ministry team at the Rocky Mountain Conference tracks results to make adjustments in what we are doing, using a shared learning method to create and strengthen sustainable children’s ministries.
Our children and families need the support of the church today more than ever. The lives of children have become increasingly complex in the last decade. Divorce rates, death, economic issues, poverty, abuse, learning issues, bullying, war, immigration, these are all things our children face today. Therefore the Rocky Mountain Conference is working to make the church a place where children can discover hope and the light of God and Christ.
