Springfield, MO / Assemblies of God

Mark Entzminger leads teams and influential leaders around the world in their journey to introduce children to Christ and help them grow a faith to last a lifetime.  With over 20 years of local church ministry, and a 4-generation heritage of church leadership his insights are sound and practical.  

He currently leads the Assemblies of God Children’s Ministries Department which is responsible for creating relevant ministry tools for the local churches in the United States of America.  These churches are reaching nearly 750,000 preschool and elementary-aged children through over 13,000 local church expressions each week.  Their shared goal is that every child will have a strong biblical foundation and faith in Christ for the rest of their lives.  

Mark’s vision for children’s ministries includes one of the most important facets for successful spiritual growth; equipping parents to become the primary voice for spiritual growth in their children lives and model the essential values and behaviors for God to use their children so they can find their destiny in Christ.

Mark is married to his college sweetheart Christie, and they have two boys Colby and Cadyn. They are graduates of Central Bible College.

A JBQ Winning Attitude

Whether your quizzers are on the winning team, or the team that came up just a little short, it’s your job as a parent or coach to make sure they react the right way. Here are three keys to making sure your quizzers are prepared to handle the joy of victory and the agony of defeat.

Keeping JBQ Practice Fun and Engaging

Each year we start off our JBQ season reminding parents of our number-one goal for their children: We want them to have fun! Some may say this goal is not appropriate. It could be said a better goal would be for kids to have God’s Word hidden in their hearts or to have a team do well in competition. I contend, though, that if kids are having fun, both things will happen naturally.

Outreach Assimilation

As summertime approaches, you are probably planning your summer outreaches and ministry events. Summer can be very busy in the kidmin world, so it’s important for us to have an attack plan before June 1st rolls around. As vital as the event itself is to plan, it is equally crucial to have a plan of attack to get all those kids to come back to church on the weekends.
