Publishers Description Children's ministry is being pushed and pulled by education models, statistical analysis, growth techniques, cultural change and technological advancements. But with the weight of all these influences, little attention is given to what ought to be the most important influence in molding the shape of children's ministry - the Word of God. Whether your children's ministry is in your home or in your church, the purpose of this book is to enable you to build a children's ministry that is rock-solid - modeled up scriptural teachings: Each chapter of this book starts with a Scripture passage- a "rock" for your foundation. The Scripture passage specifically refers to children or ministering to them. Each chapter contains a thorough discussion of implications and applications.

Reviews - What do customers think about Rock-Solid KIDS?
Great read and very challenging Nov 8, 2006
This book was written very well and had a few challenges for me to work through.
I would definately recommend this book as a must read for families, those who work with kids, those who are thinking of working with kids. it truly does a great job of challenging you in how do you really value kids? Do you see them as valuable, one who christ died for? Do you see them as a tool to get to the parents? What about a bother?
Maybe you already work with kids but you find yourself preparing for your time with them getting shorter and shorter. This is a tell discussed in the book that even as a full time childrens pastor of 15+ years I found myself challenging to think through.
highly practical Oct 26, 2006
This book is extremely helpful for those wanting to minister to children. It's wisdom is drawn straight from the Word of God. It's only 139 pages but it definately brought sharing the gospel with kids into clear focus for me. It's not just a bunch of alarmist theory and statistics; it's a highly practical guide for families and churches. There are 8 chapters and each is based on a passage of scripture related to children.
Rock Solid Kids Oct 7, 2005
This book is an excellent study exclaiming the need to give children a Biblical foundation. This book shows how vitally important the children's ministry is to the future of the church. It declares that we have an opportunity as christians to make a mark for Christ by sharing with children the clear and effectual gospel of Christ. I wholeheartedly agree with it and recommend it. The children's ministry is not a babysitting service; it is the most fertile ground for sharing the gospel and impacting the future of the church. This book is very well written and an enlightening read.
