Our Mission

Our Mission as the Children's Department for the Alabama District is to assist the local church in the spiritual formation and discipleship process of every one of our boys and girls.  We are striving to help Equip, Encourage and Empower this generation of kids.  We are also continually strategizing for more effective ways to help develop, resource, and strengthen children's leaders to reach their full potential in serving at their local church.  The Alabama District offers many programs and events throughout the year to assist in carrying out this mission.  Together, we are raising up an army of Holy Spirit empowered soldiers of the Cross.  We believe and understand that Kid's Ministry is of the utmost importance in the local church.  Ministry to our children MUST be the highest priority in our churches!  It is our desire, passion, and pleasure to assist you in this mandate of the Lord!

Summer Camps

Kids Camp is an awesome way to teach and encourage children in a personal walk with Jesus.  This is a concentrated time where children can come for a few days and enjoy the activities and camp atmosphere while learning about Jesus in an exciting and fun way.  Our services at night feature puppets, characters, music, games, and the preaching of the Word at a child's level.  The altar time is very important in bringing children in to a personal time with the Lord and giving them time to experience what God has for them at camp.  Throughout our history, 1000s of children & youth have been called in to full time ministry, received direction for their life's calling, been baptized in the power of the Holy Spirit, and been changed at these altars!  Camp...it's not a choice...it's a MUST for every child!

JBQ

Junior Bible Quiz (JBQ) is one of the best family discipleship ministries available for your family or church/children's ministry.  Families are looking for a great way to study the Scriptures together and have fun while doing it.  JBQ can be used by families, churches, or on the competition side, with our Alabama District.  JBQ competition is scheduled alongside the school year, starting in September and running through April on the state level with opportunities to compete regionally and nationally.  JBQ competition is for boys and girls in the 1st through the 6th grade.  The questions are compiled in a study guide and are made up of 576 questions coming from Genesis through Revelation, and covering the 16 Fundamental Truths of the A/G.  It is a fun way to study God's Word and have friendly competition between churches in our state.  For more information please contact Pastor Tim Jones at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

BGMC

Boys and Girls Missionary Challenge (BGMC) is the missions education program for all kids in the Assemblies of God.  BGMC equips kids to know, to care, to pray, to give and to reach the lost.  We have a two fold purpose; to reach the children of the world and to create a heart of compassion in kids.  BGMC is making a difference around the world.  BGMC funds are being used to equip our missionaries with the necessary resources to help spread the Good News of Jesus Christ!  We believe children of all ages should be encouraged and taught to give to BGMC.  Kids who give to BGMC today, will one day become the adults who support the Mission Ministry of our local churches tomorrow.
