Eight Goals for Kids

How to make the Eight Goals sticky

The traditional approach churches have taken in discipleship is to teach kids what they need to know and do. While there will always be a need for teaching, there are some additional principles that help faith grow deep in children which should be understood.

The commitment that parents, church leaders, and other Christ-followers must make is to:

  1. Live their lives as an example—make faith contagious (Model)
  2. Encourage the next generation—build a confidence that echoes into the future (Mentor)
  3. Anchor faith in the Word of God—stand courageously on the promises of God (Message)

In many ways discipleship is a lot like learning to ride a bike.  We see someone riding a bike which creates an imprint and desire to be like them.  As the new bike rider journeys out on two wheels for the first time, others are there to cheer them on - even when they falter.  What allows them to continue riding their bike for years to come is the knowledge and understanding that comes from following the “rules of the road.”

Helping our children reach these eight goals and have a lifelong faith in Christ is similar.

Many churches use resources to help create environments where faith will grow. Though every curriculum may have the same end goal - lifelong faith - they approach it in difference ways. Below are some of the ministries provided through the Assemblies of God which naturally facilitate one of the 3M’s as a starting point. Download this brochure to learn more.
