The Childhood Ministry of Oklahoma Baptists is built on the relationships we develop with children birth through sixth grade and the “Three Pillars of Childhood Ministry” below.

Vacation Bible School

Wave hello to next year’s VBS theme!

Kids will be challenged as they discover that God’s truth never changes, everyone needs Jesus, and learn to speak the truth in love. Adventure awaits each day as kids explore tide pools, spot orcas, fly kites, and watch the mighty waves crash up against the immovable Breaker Rock!

E-Book: 10 Attributes of an Unshakeable Kids Ministry

Unshakable kids ministries understand that children’s ministry isn’t only about engaging kids, it is about partnering with families. To build strong ministries we need to actively equip parents and caregivers to have spiritual conversations with their own kids at home. To do this well, we need to invest in building relationships at the family level.

Three Pillars

1. Children need to hear about Jesus.

The free gift of forgiveness of sin is offered to all people.  Children should be given an opportunity to respond.  Without providing a time of response, children will not know appropriate ways for accepting Christ and misconceptions can easily develop.

2. Children must be taught Bible skills.

Bible skills begin in the preschool departments and are sharpened as children become readers.  Children who gain Bible skills will be able to feed themselves spiritually and grow as lifelong followers of Christ.

3. Children need opportunities to serve.

Teaching about missions and praying for missionaries are wonderful but our children need time when they serve.  Allowing kids to serve others will further their understanding of obeying Jesus and following his example.  They will gain a deeper appreciation and joy in the Christian life.

Our Childhood Ministry is committed to developing leaders who are passionate about reaching children and families for Christ.  We strive to provide excellence in training and resources that the churches, pastors, ministers and teachers of Oklahoma can use effectively.
