Children's Work Mission, Vision & Values

"Unless the Lord builds the house they labour in vain who build it…"

"Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one’s youth…"

Psalm 127

Mission

O ­– outreach- empowered children going into the world, pointing people to Jesus (Engaging with His world).
R – releasing of children to use their spiritual gifts (Engaging with His people).
– expectancy for God to move and work in lives.
