Our vision for the children’s ministry here at Gates of Praise Church 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
Empowering a generation of revivalists that do what Jesus does and say what He says.
We work closely with the community care givers, identifying the critical needs of families and providing health care, comfort through prayer, food parcels and clothing, and partnering with them in various projects e.g garden. We have assisted during times of disaster and through sponsorship, provided much need building materials to those who have lost all in fires or floods.
Our vision is to see a community and skills training center built, from which we will be able to run various adult, parenting and youth programs, which will eventually empower the people to learn skills from all aspects of life and be a place of social work, meeting the emotional and spiritual needs of not just this community but others like it, thus further enriching their lives and to have the Brain Boosters educational program up and running for the 0-5 year old children.
