Children's Life Centers are the ministry by which we will reach most of the children and their families in any given community. They are to be planted in and among the communities they are called to reach. This is the only way we can love our neighbors as ourselves. This means to live with them in the same area to be able to personally get to know them, form lasting trusting relationships and to minister daily to all their needs.
The Children's Life Centers are a community outreach ministry that are open to children and their families of all faiths and beliefs. The Centers are the base of operations for all local ministry for those who will come to the Centers to receive all they offer and for all the outreaches that come out of the Centers to minister to the needs in their established area.
Depending on the country, culture and local government the goal for each Center is that it will offer through its trained and equipped ministry workers, the love of Jesus in action. This will be accomplished in as the need arises in a cooked meal, food supplies, water, clothing, showers, prayer ministry for deliverance, healing and wholeness, discipleship, pastoral care and counsel, preschool to high school education. English language classes, fitness fun and nutrition instruction, small business and micro farming training will be offered when applicable. Whenever possible each Center as a local community center will have a kitchen and cafeteria, rooms to house our workers, outdoor areas for a playground, school and job training activities with a small soccer field and basketball and volleyball courts.
For those who become new Christians in each Center we will have Family Life Groups as a part of our local Cell, House & Micro Church Network structure set up in homes and businesses to give pastoral care and discipleship.
Again our goal is to attempt to meet as many local children's and family’s needs as possible by demonstrating the love of Jesus in action and not in words only.
It is evangelism, mercy ministry and discipleship by love.
