The Mission, Vision, and Ministry of
Children Desiring God

Our mission is to spread a passion for the supremacy of God in all things so that the next generation may know and cherish Jesus Christ as the only One who saves and satisfies the desires of the heart.

We want millions in every generation to set their hope in God. To that end, we aim to fuel spiritual desire by producing God-centered, Bible-saturated, Christ-exalting resources and by equipping parents and churches working in partnership to instruct the mind, engage the heart, and nurture the faith of the next generations.

Foundations for God-Centered Children's Ministry

God-centered children's ministry is fueled by a biblical vision for worship, biblical literacy, and faith in the next generation. It involves the willing participation of pastors, parents, congregations and children's ministry workers in an earnest effort to proclaim the praiseworthy name and testimony of the Lord to children of all ages. In the following three videos, David and Sally Michael share the foundations of a God-centered children's ministry.

  • A Vision for God-Centered Worship in the Next Generation explores the difference that intentional vision has on ministry as well as the definition of and biblical basis for "God-centeredness."
  • A Vision for Biblical Literacy in the Next Generation examines the place that the Bible has in children's ministry and outlines the essential pieces of a ministry that teaches children the whole counsel of God. (Jill Nelson joins David & Sally in this talk.)
  • A Vision for Encouraging Faith in the Next Generation emphasizes the urgent call to teachers and parents to encourage faith in the next generation, through biblical teaching of the word, recognizing that faith is a work of God in the heart.
