Mark Entzminger

Springfield, MO / Assemblies of God

Mark Entzminger, a fourth generation Pentecostal, is very concerned about children understanding and experiencing a Spirit-empowered life. Like you, he believes that the power of the Holy Spirit is just as critical for children today as it was for the disciples who waited in the Upper Room. 

As the Senior Director of Children’s Ministries for his denomination, Mark leads a high caliber team. He and his team focus on equipping the local church in reaching and discipling children so each child can hear the voice of the Holy Spirit and respond to His call.  

Mark is married to his college sweetheart, Christie. They have two boys. Mark and Christie graduated from Central Bible College.


Milestones for Kids

Recently I was asked to provide some basic guidelines for milestones for kids. I love this assignment because it represents two things:

Wanna Play Shadow?

When we think of the goal living like Christ (our eighth goal of the 8 Goals of AG Kidmin), we need to compare it to playing the game Shadow. How can we help children imitate an invisible Jesus? How do we show them what Jesus would do—how He would think, and the way He would process the situations in the world? Mark Entzminger demonstrates three approaches to helping kids “live like Christ.”

Sacrificial Giving is a Sacrifice

“For about eight months I had this nagging feeling in the back of my mind: “Did I rob my son of following what God had put on his heart?” I even teach parents not to do this, but I did the very same thing. I encourage them to walk with their child and nurture what God has placed in their heart. But yet, I violated this very principle.” See what the Spirit taught Mark Entzminger in this 8 Goals of Children’s Ministries post.
