Studies have shown that the fastest-growing churches are those that offer multiple ministries for children and advertise them to the public.
We strive to reach children each day with the glad news that they have a personal Savior that loves them.
Adventurers Ministries provides support, training, and resources for local church Adventurer clubs, which are organized for families with children ages 4-9. Additionally, we sponsor and organize three conference-wide club events each year–a Family Fun Weekend and Bike Derby in the fall, and a Fun Day in the spring.
