The 30,000 foot view of ministry to kids in a multi-ethnic church in Seattle, WA.
Our Kids and Family Ministry has evolved over the past 13 years. Each year we reflect [briefly] on our vision and mission. Because it is based off the larger church vision and mission, it doesn’t change too much!
We seek to Love God. Love Other People. Love God’s World.
This was recently re-written to reflect our current ministry.
Purpose & Values
Quest Kids is a multi-ethnic, all abilities, and intergenerational ministry to and with children. We seek to journey together to be transformed by God’s Spirit as we follow Jesus and grow in discipleship. We are a diverse body; each created in God’s image and designed to worship God and be valued; to have a place and presence in the church community.
We believe that a child’s spiritual formation begins at home, and that it is the role of the church to assist parents/guardians in raising children to know and live for God. We are committed to each child’s spiritual growth throughout all aspects of our ministry. We provide a safe, nurturing environment with a structure of safety policies and volunteer accountability.
Through music, Scripture, prayer, fun and relationships, we hope to ignite a deep love for Christ in each child we serve. In teaching the message of God’s love, salvation through Christ, and the presence of the Holy Spirit, we help kids recognize their place in the big God Story. Quest Kids seek to love God, love other people and pursue reconciliation in the world.
