I first attended church when I was 23 years old, but I was just a Sunday Christian then. At one of the Young Adults Retreats, I encountered God’s love and His Spirit so powerfully that I have given my life to Jesus.What has Full Gospel Church meant to you?
Full Gospel was my first church and it is a place that has given me a new Life that allows me to grow spiritually to know God more. It has been almost 10 years since I first began to attend. At Full Gospel, I have served in many roles including Pre-K and Korean director. I am currently serving as Children’s pastor.What is your vision for the Children’s ministry at Full Gospel?
To create safe ground that’s more fun than playground where children can come and grow into more spiritually-healthy children with many exciting activities including worship.What are your values and positions on the Children’s ministry?
1. Spirit: Kids do not receive kid-sized Holy Spirit.
The same Holy Spirit who raised Christ from the dead lives in every child who has asked Jesus into his or her heart. The Spirit-filled who recognize God’s voice are God’s secret weapon in reaching the next generation (1 Timothy 4:12)
2. Mind: Knowing God’ Word sets the stage for the rest of children’s lives.
Children are naturally more sensitive to the Spirit realm, so knowing God’s Word from an early age equips them to combat spiritual battles. God’s Word gives children a solid foundation to overcome present and future trials (Psalm 119:9-11).
3. Worship: God gives children access to His heart.
God seeks true worshipers, and He loves the people He has created. God raising up a generation who wants what He wants, and see themselves the way that He does – true worshipers who knows Him intimately (Matthew 19:14).
4. Hands: Carry on the Father’s business.
As children grow, they learn to do what is expected of them without always being asked. Likewise, children who know the Father’s heart will carry out His plan of sharing His love and introducing others to Jesus (Luke 2:49).
5. Family: Faith begins at home.
While children learn about God once or twice at church, it is insufficient for their spiritual growth. Children’s ministry partners with parents to supplement being taught at home during the week (Deuteronomy 6:6-7)Anything else of interest to your readers?
In my free time, I like going to coffee shop and read books. I am very picky in choosing coffee shop. I must sit at a comfortable chair by the glass wall (hard to find!). Peet’s Coffee is one of my favorite coffee shop. I am terrified of earthquakes and dark parking lots (I run to my car!). Please don’t hesitate to email me if you have any questions about our Children’s ministry!
