The mission of Young Child Ministries is to assist families with young children in developing a balanced understanding of the Biblical principles of child rearing and child guidance. We seek to do this with a focus on the development of the whole child: Mentally, physically and spiritually, through the use of Biblical texts, nature, proven authors, child development research and practices, techniques and tips.
This mission has its foundation in a Biblical context with counsel provided by various authors concerning the upbringing and purposeful training of the young child. Three scriptural verses on which this philosophy leans upon gives instruction to “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness” (Matthew 6:33, King James Version), teach the words of Holy Script “diligently unto thy children” (Deuteronomy 6:7), and to “train up a child in the way he should go” (Proverbs 22:6). To these admonitions, White adds that “True education… has to do with the whole being… It is the harmonious development of the physical, the mental, and the spiritual powers” (White, 1903/2002, Ed., p. 13, ¶1). Such harmonious development is found in the study of God’s law, the Bible, nature, service to others and “useful occupation” (White, 1903/2002, Ed., p. 21, ¶3). Hence, the “first object of education is to direct our minds” and those of our children to God’s revelation of Himself (Matthew 6:22; Psalms 111:10; Proverbs 9:10; White, 1903/2002, Ed., p. 16, ¶4).
Through the use of Biblical texts, nature, miscellaneous authors, child development research and practices, we will share techniques and tips that will help that will help in the development of the whole child: Mentally, physically and spiritually.
