Testimonies:

Sprouts was formally called Children’s Ministry Summit

“Sprouts would like to invite your Sunday School teachers and staff to attend our Annual Children’s Conference. 2013 was our inaugural event and was a great success! We had a powerful move of God and time of rededicating our lives to teaching children biblical truths. The Sunday following the children’s summit we had over 20 children receive the Holy Ghost for the very first time. God has continued to bless our efforts and many more have received this life changing gift.

Please come and experience Sis. Vickie Oliver’s ministry and be blessed.”

Conlen Jones, Children’s Pastor of Eastview UPC

 

“I highly recommend sending your children’s ministry workers to the Children’s Ministry Summit hosted by Eastview UPC. It has been a great blessing to my church.”

Rev. Dathan Triplett, Texas District Sunday School Director

 

“At the close of the 2013 Children’s Summit at Eastview UPC, Center First UPC Sunday School staff left the Summit inspired and with a renewed burden for working in Children’s Ministry. On the way back home we were planning how we would change our operations to become more effective in ministering to the children in our home church. Upon making those adjustments, we began to see spiritual growth in the lives of our children. If your Children’s Ministry Dept. needs a renewing and re-birthing of a burden to work with the children in your local church, you do not want to miss this Summit.”

David Hailey, Children’s Director of Center First UPC

 

“The Children’s Summit helped our Sunday School tremendously with the spiritual aspect. We’ve always enjoyed ourselves and the children really have fun and want to come back, but we have not previously had a scheduled or structured time for worship using the steps of worship as explained to us at the conference. We rearranged our schedule on the way home that Saturday to incorporate this principle. The children asked if we were going to ‘get’ to do that every Sunday! We have a lot of bus children so they have not been exposed to things that some of us perhaps take for granted. We do rotational Sunday School and a time for worship is something we still do every Sunday as our last rotation with all ages combined.”

Gena Porterfield, First Pentecostal Church of Joaquin
