The Children Fellowship is one of the arms or units in Greater Evangelism World Crusade. It is an integral part of the Children / Teenagers Department, also within the same Ministry of GEWC.
VISION OF THE CHILDREN FELLOWSHIP:
The Children Fellowship of Greater Evangelism World Crusade focuses on nurturing Children within the age bracket of 1 – 12 years. In the vision of the Ministry of GEWC, the Children were among the crowd bowing down like Muslims in prayers. The Children Fellowship is involved in fulfilling the Vision of Greater Evangelism World Crusade as it relates to the children, to raise their faces to look up to God and be saved. Our target is that every child in our Ministry must be born again.
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES:
1 To present the good news of our Lord Jesus Christ to Children
2 To build godly foundation in the children and give them godly direction
3 When a child is saved, a whole lifetime is saved but the saved adult has a lesser life time on earth. This is why we want to catch them young for Christ as early as possible.
4 To help them grow and be established in the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ
5 To teach and encourage them to make Jesus Christ known to others
6 To help them know their place in the Ministry and be effective members of their Local Churches
7 To help them discover and use their talents to serve God
8 To disciple and follow them up
9 Collaborating with the Adult Church Pastors and the Church as a whole to ensure that the Children that are graduated to the teenage class and subsequently to the Church are mature Christians and viable tools for effective work in the Church.
