Call for Children's Ministry Sponsors!

One of the most exciting things I get to be a part of here in Romania is the growth and development of six children's ministries in the villages surrounding Reghin.  I've had the opportunity to come alongside our workers and help equip them as they serve our kids.  Last fall, we created a 4-year curriculum plan, and I've been gradually purchasing teaching materials from Child Evangelism Fellowship (or AMEC in Romanian), an international children's ministry organization who has an office in Romania!  We love their colorful materials and helpful publications, and we're so thankful to have them as a resource!

This March, AMEC will be holding a children's ministry conference here in Romania!  The conference will be held in Sibiu, about a 2.5-hour drive from Reghin.  Our children's workers have never had the opportunity to attend a conference for children's ministry, and none of us have never received any kind of formal children's ministry training! Now, we have the chance to meet other children's workers from all over the country, to worship together, to be encouraged, and to hear teaching about the various aspects of our work, including relationships with kids, parents, and the church.  The theme for the conference is Aim for Excellence, which is exactly what we seek to do in our ministry here in Mures county!  We are currently praying for sponsors who will help to make it possible for our children's ministry leaders to attend this exciting event!  For transportation, lodging for one night, two meals and registration for the conference, it will cost about $40 for each of our 10 leaders.  Would you consider sponsoring someone on our team?

One of Paul's and my core values as we serve here in Romania is to dedicate ourselves to discipleship.  Not only that, but as we disciple the teachers of our children, we are taking part in one of the most important responsibilities we could possibly have:

"We will tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the Lord, about his power and mighty wonders." Psalm 78:4

Please consider partnering with us as we seek to bring our children's workers to this exciting conference opportunity.  You can send your gift of sponsorship through the Teleios website (click here) or by clicking on the Give tab above.  Please indicate that your gift is for the children's ministry conference in Romania!  Thank you for your partnership!
