3. Utilizing Zoom for Children’s Ministry
As we continue to navigate our new normal, many churches and Christian organisations are embracing the use of digital tools to make sure the work of sharing the gospel does not stop. Many parents are looking for channels where their children can be ministered to and discipled while at home.
As we adapt our ministry work with children, we believe that we can remain effective by taking advantage of the technological tools presently available to us. We still believe in the opportunities for innovation and growth in ministry in a time of disruption to reach, rescue, root, and release this emerging generation into the dream of God for their lives.
