ACF Uganda Core Ministries

Children’s ministry
High Impact Education Program:No matter what the setting, children seem to be a second-rate mandate. No matter what the ill of society, it tends to spiral downward and eventually lands with its cruelest and most smothering impact on our littlest citizens. Small, Weak, helpless, innocent, vulnerable, and trusting, they are the waiting victims for our simple neglect and most evil abuse.

No matter what goes wrong, the little ones pay the greatest price. When hunger and famine strike a nation, adults become weak and hungry, but it is the children who most often starve to death. ACF Children’s ministry program aims to lay solid building blocks in math,Science, and English and it also includes a Bible school do deepen the child’s knowledge and experience of Jesus Christ. In this ministry there will be opportunities for children to be involved with drama, puppets, crafts, worship, interactive games, Bible stories, Sports, or skits. We want to do whatever it takes to influence these kids. We want to encourage them, mentor them, provide basic necessities and demonstrate the love of Jesus for them.

"Jesus said, 'Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.'" Matthew 19:14

Evangelism is always our focus. Though we minister to children in need, we open our hearts and are sensitive to the lord to lead us to those He has prepared for the kingdom. Evangelistic programs are be planned in collaboration with local churches. Some options include: Door-to-Door Evangelism, outdoor outreaches, Bible distributions, street evangelism, evangelism explosion, or sharing the gospel through various media tools
"Then Jesus said to them, 'Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.'" Mathew 28:10
