I would argue that this way of thinking is not only wrong, but unbiblical. Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me and do not forbid them for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven." How often do we put children aside so the "real ministry" can happen? Jesus himself wanted us to make sure that kids were ministered to. He understood what we sometimes forget, "Christianity is only one generation from being extinct!"
I am thankful to serve at a church that values kids and kids ministry. Hope has been a great church that cares for the spiritual health of the entire family! I pray that we can lead the way for other churches to follow and truly validate Children's Ministry!
