A New Approach to GCN’s Unique Approach

Up until now, we have all been focused primarily on reaching out to Church Pastors. Taking them through Malachi Kids Club training challenging them to return to their churches on mission to train and COMMISSION Church Parents to begin spiritual training and conversation with their children at home.
It looks like this: Pastor + Parent Partnership = Next Generation Disciple. We have been calling this our “top down” approach. But, what about parents or grandparents in churches where pastors are not yet onboard with GCN and the PASTOR-PARENT PARTNERSHIP ministry platform we provide?
How about a “bottom up” approach? Shall we not go ahead and train parents to begin storying at home with their children in hopes that pastors will one day join in? So, I took them through several hours of online ZOOM training and then they were commissioned in a special digital commissioning service.

Parent + Story Telling Training + Spiritual Commissioning = Next Generation Disciple

Africa – Liberia

Africa – Liberia   Liberia’s GCN Country Missionary, Christopher Swen, recently spent quality time together with over 50 women and men from six churches.  They were trained using the Malachi Kids Club platform to run an effective children’s ministry with emphasis on discipleship. 
Liberia is just one of over 20 countries in Africa using the Malachi Kids Club platform.   Every week more and more children are being taught how to tell God’s stories and in turn they become the Next Generation Disciples for Jesus Christ.   Africa needs printed materials.   Just like everywhere in the world, the Internet is not reliable in the rural parts of it.   And Africa has a lot of rural areas across the continent.   So the need for printed materials is greatest in Africa.   Will you prayerfully consider supporting   Africa’s printing needs so   another child can become a Next Generation Disciple for Jesus Christ?
