Youth and Families Program Development

Ministry Architects, a church consulting organization, visited our church and listened to our needs to help us build a better Children and Youth Ministry.  We thank you for your involvement.

Leslie Manning presented the results of these discussions and her recommendations on August 25 and you may read the full report by clicking Ministry Architects Report August 25, 2018.

During the September Vestry Meeting, Christ the King agreed to engage Ministry Architects for Infrastructure Development – click to see the Youth Infrastructure Ministry Architects Contract

The Youth Cohort is actively working with Ministry Architects to define our programs and is increasing our scheduling of Youth Grade 6-12 events – please contact Denise Greene if you’d like to participate or have ideas for these events.

In addition, the Vestry made a strategic commitment to provide Childcare for all events at the Church where not having it would be a barrier to your participation, or where the intended audience might be better served.  Please help us know when to cover all appropriate events.
