Childhood Ministry Specialist
The Challenge?
The area of preschool and children's ministries is a great challenge for today's churches. Challenging not only because preschoolers and children are always talking and moving. But challenging because these are the years of preparing a strong foundation upon which the rest of life's directions and values will be built.

The Challenge!
Helping Northwest churches prepare to meet the challenges of providing a healthy, balanced atmosphere for learning the way God designed preschoolers and children to learn. To partner with Northwest churches to meet the needs of children and their families. To provide resources, training, consultation, networking.

Safety & Security
Churches must do all that they can to provide a safe and secure environment for all preschoolers, children and workers. Here are a few suggestions for providing a safe environment.

  • Screening all adults, volunteer and paid, who work with preschoolers and children. The screening should include references from former churches and a criminal background check.
  • Using some type of security procedure for releasing preschoolers and young children only to authorized adults.
  • Provide a least two unrelated adults in each department regardless of the number of children and the size of the church.
  • Supervising adults who work with preschoolers and children closely and making unannounced visits in the department often.
  • Educating and encouraging the use of universal health precautions.
