Looking for Age Appropriate Ministry Ideas?

Planning a ministry to a certain age group of youth or children?

With the development of the Discipleship Matrix, finding resources, ideas and tools for that ministry is a whole lot more accessible.

The matrix breaks down the many different age groups of youth and children and informs leaders on specific considerations for that age group. These considerations are based on developmental ages and stages. This is then mapped with ministry resources, links and curriculum ideas.

These resource ideas for ministry cover the head, heart and hands as the main elements of discipleship:

The Matrix also provides links to ideas and resources for the two environments that discipleship takes place, them being Family and Church. In each section you can get resources for empowering families in their ministry towards the specific age group and also for engagement and integration into wider church involvement.

The matrix will help ministry leaders plan programs that cover all three elements in either a youth or children’s ministry environments. These programs will be relevant to each respective ministry, thus providing a holistic discipleship approach. The obvious strength of the Matrix is that it brings many resources together in an easy searchable format.

The Matrix is an ever increasing bank of ideas, articles, training packages that can be explored at the CRCA Resources Website

A few booklets and posters have been mailed to each church, if you would like your own personal copy then please email CRCA Resources to request one free of charge.
