1 CMIN 500: FOUNDATIONS FOR CHILDREN S MINISTRY Summer 2013; Intensive Dr. Michael R. Mitchell (434) I. Course Description In his conclusion to the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7), Jesus declared that to build a life house on rock one must not only hear His words but put them into practice. To help facilitate this response of active obedience in the lives of children this course builds upon the sage s exhortation to train a child in the way he should go (Proverbs 22:6) and provides the foundation for a variety of services to children whether in home, church, or school. It will address the underlying principles and the essential practices of an effective ministry to children, from evangelism to edification and discipleship. II. Rationale Robert Pazmiño s observation concerning Christian education in general is certainly applicable to children s ministry in specific (1988): It is crucial that foundational questions be raised by Christian educators before they form a set theory and practice of Christian education. Raising these questions enable Christian educators to explore new possibilities and to consider new wineskins for Christian education. Through such exploration, persons concerned for education in various settings can identify principles and implications for practice. III. Prerequisites None IV.
