George Barna, the expert Christian researcher, found that “if you want to have a lasting influence upon the world, you must invest in people’s lives; and if you want to maximize that investment then you must invest in those people while they are young…” If we “connect with children today, effectively teaching them biblical principles and foundations from the start, then [we] will see the fruit of that effort blossom for decades to come.”
Psalm 78: 4, 7 compels us to tell the next generation of the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders he has done SO THAT they will put their trust in God. Therefore, the ARK exists to make Jesus known to preschoolers (infants to 4-year olds); Always Reaching Kids in Tampa & beyond.
Parents are reluctant to entrust their children to just anybody. They want assurances. They want to know the adults are safe and caring; the facility is safe and clean; and, that their child’s experience will be positive.
The ARK will be a safe and fun place of IMPACT where we
INTRODUCE preschoolers to the Gospel of Jesus Christ;
MINISTER to their needs;
PRAY for each of them, that they will
ACCEPT Jesus as their personal Savior.
CONNECT them with other Christians;
TRAIN them for a life-long relationship with Jesus Christ
We are NOT a babysitting service where we “watch” children! We are, in fact, an experience where young children are engaged in meaningful age-appropriate lessons and activities that point them to faith in Jesus Christ.
