We are committed in partnering with parents to nurture and develop God’s call on each child’s life. During the children’s ministry time, the children are taught how to pray introducing them to a loving Jesus who desires to commune with them. The children are encouraged in using the gifts of the Holy Spirit. We encourage the children to go forth in their communities doing the work of the Lord.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is orchestrating a global prayer strategy in these very days and that the children are a part of it!
We teach children to believe the promise given to us in Acts 2:17 that in these days His Spirit will be poured out on all flesh and they are the ones that can prophesy, dream dreams, and see visions.
We are seeking the Lord daily for daily wisdom, strategies and opportunities that can mobilize this promise in the hearts of young people worldwide.
We believe that there is a “Sons of Issachar” anointing being poured out on children across all the world to understand the times and seasons we are living in.
We believe in Psalm 8:2, “From the lips of infants and children you have ordained praise because of your enemies, to silence the foe and avenger.” When our children, even babies, are in an atmosphere of worship and praise they are doing mighty warfare in the heavens! At Acts 2:17 HOP we encourage the parents to engage in the worship and prayer time with their children as to model prayer and worship themselves. We allow them the freedom to march around with flags, play small hand instruments, pray over the microphone and teach a 5 minute lesson to guide them in learning Biblical truths. This prayer slot is geared towards infants and pre-schooler’s however any age is welcome. This modeling and training enables the children to know how to function in the prayer room and teaches them why, why we pray, why we worship, why we take communion. At an age where children want answers to so many questions we want to engage them in the Why’s of the important questions.
This prayer slot is geared towards school-age kids with their parents. We want to partner with the parents in modeling and teaching the deeper truths as to enable the parents to continue the teachings during the week.
YoungWarriors is different from Acts 2:17 HOP in that we are teaching the kids what it means when Psalm 8:2 says, “From the lips of infants and children you have ordained praise because of your enemies, to silence the foe and avenger.” The Lord has empowered the children’s praises to silence the enemy. We want the children to know, understand, and walk in the power and authority that God has given to them. We have a teaching each week that focuses on either a warrior from the Bible, how to battle today, what is a warrior, and much more. All building up who they are in Christ to give them the confidence to be a YoungWarrior for Christ today! We also model, encourage, and invite them to pray for the world, city and personal issues over the microphone using the Word of God as our guide. We teach them how to function in the House of Prayer so that they can have that same confidence at any prayer meeting, knowing that they hear from God and can engage in prayer and worship anywhere.
