City of Faith Church vision is to create a fun and loving community where children are irresistibly drawn to know Christ, where empowered volunteers are using their God-given gifts to serve with great passion and delight, and where the church invests in the faith of the next generation.
Our vision for the children's ministries department here at City of Faith is to empower, equip, and activate children to advance the Kingdom of God. It's our heart that they know Him, encounter Him, and adore Him. Children learn to know Him through the Word, they encounter Him through His presence, and adore Him through a life surrendered.
We impart the Word of God to the children by teaching with a systematic approach where they are able to hear it, see it, say it, and do it. We create an environment where the Holy Spirit is welcome and the children are positioned to encounter God's manifest presence. Worship, soaking, dancing, prophetic art, prayer, and prophecy are just some of the many ways that His presence is manifest revealing the Father's love for them. Through knowing and experiencing God, the fruit of a child's life is adoration and a life surrendered.
