Children's Leaders

Cooperative Program: Many Hands Make Light Work

Give each child in your group a few coins and show them a large bag of candy. Tell children how much the bag of candy costs. Ask if any one of them has enough coins to buy the bag.

It's Time to Grow

What do you say when someone asks you about Girls in Action, Royal Ambassadors, or Children in Action? What do you share on social media or with parents of potential GAs, RAs, or CAs? When someone on staff at your church asks how your class is going, what do you tell them?

Grow Your Group with Personal Invitations

As leaders, we are always looking for ways to encourage more children to come to our groups and events. This quarter, try some of these invitation ideas to reach out to children who aren't regularly attending your missions group meetings.

Leading Missions on a Shoestring Budget

Even if you aren't on a tight budget, we all need to be good stewards of the funds entrusted to us. With that thought in mind, consider these ways to stretch what is allotted for your children's missions group:

Why I Lead GA

I belonged to a GA group of 1, way back when. In those days, GA began at age 9, and we had just returned to central China, where Mom and Dad were missionaries.

Understanding Development Makes Effective Planning

Girls in Action, Royal Ambassadors, and Children in Action cover a wide age-range of children and stages of development.

Missions and Learning Styles: Full Body Missions

You may find that your missions group is full of children who cannot sit still. This may be a reflection of their learning styles. They may be kinesthetic or hands-on learners. These learners need to move, act out, and touch to experience and process new material.

Listen Up: Bringing Missions Home for the Auditory Learner

As you look at your GAs, RAs, and CAs, you will see a lot of differences. Children learn in different ways, and they interact with information in different ways. Many children learn best through hearing; they are auditory learners.

Incorporating Learning Styles in Missions Education

Every child is different. All children have different likes and dislikes, different levels of ability and education, and different learning preferences. The children we teach may be visual learners, auditory learners, or kinesthetic learners.

Toward Deeper Learning: Asking the Right Questions

How many times have you caught yourself wrapping up a lesson with questions like Who is our missionary this week? or Where does our missionary live?
