Ecclesia's Children Ministries
Born Out Of A Vision To Bless Children
Ecclesia's Children Ministries provides Bible Illustrated Character Training Literature:
Along with worship and character songs for children. Other materials include Bible foundational teaching materials and instructional teacher training and lesson materials on how to begin village and community programs for children. Teacher Training Seminars are offered to equip parents and teachers to effectively teach children.
Born out of vision, prayer and a desire to bless the children of India for the glory of God, Ecclesia's Children Ministries began a focus of ministry to India in the Fall of 1999. Through Bible and Character programs in rural villages children hear a clear message of the love of Jesus Christ and are taught godly character principles for their lives. Ecclesia's Children Ministries networks with local Christians in host nations to uplift, train and strengthen the hearts of children to live godly lives.
Our Lessons in Living Character Lessons, written by Glen De Young, teach qualities of character such as Attentiveness, Obedience, Truthfulness, Gratefulness, Generosity, Orderliness, Forgiveness, Sincerity, and Virtue found in the character of God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son of God, and the Holy Spirit. All of these character bulletins are available in English and Spanish.
There are five lesson plans within this Attentiveness bulletin consisting of lessons on God the Father, the life of Jonah, Adam & Eve, William Carey, and the Prodigal son. Line drawings for coloring on student exercise worksheets help the student understand the quality, practice the quality by doing, and to teach others the character quality they are applying to their life. Our character songs for children highlight each quality.

Our mission statement is to “Mentor, mobilize and disciple Christian adults and children to disciple the children of all nations." This mission is accomplished through strengthening believers in their committed vision of teaching and training children in the knowledge, the ways and the character of God.
The mission of the Ecclesia Children’s Ministries is to model the life of Christ as the example and the standard for conduct and life. The goal of this mission is to have a quality program to reach as many children as possible.
Through teacher training seminars, Biblical teaching is given on how to share the message of salvation found only in Christ. We are committed to encouraging all Christian believers, young and old, to teach the foundational Biblical principles of the gospel and in teaching Godly character principles to bless children.
Teachers are trained to teach Bible lessons and character values in order to bring Godly change into the child's life. The child is then taught how to teach others because of the change in their personal life and character. With this method we are not only training children in Godly ways of living, but also in equiping children to teach others.
