Item description for The Children's Minister by Rita B. Hays...
Overview Many churches provide many planned activities and learning experiences of a child, but those who work with children often fail to see themselves as pastors to these children. Indeed, the potential pastoral care for children is not usually addressed in seminary or in much of the literature concerning caring for the church. Rita Hays offers a warmhearted challenge to those in children's ministry to become pastors to those who are a part of their folk. Her vision encompasses all congregations who interact with children. She examines the needs of children and the ways in which they are most often neglected.
