Welcome to MiniVan Ministries!
Most parents have uttered this promise at one point in our lives…”I will never own a minivan!” But many of us succumb to the sure awesomeness of all that room and not having to bend over when buckling kids in car seats. When our kids become more important to us than our coolness quotient, style sometimes goes out the window. We just want what is best for our kids.
So shouldn’t we want the same for our kids spiritually? If you have a love relationship with Jesus, don’t you want that for your child? But most of us put more thought into what we drive or how our family looks than how we introduce them to Jesus and show them His love. Or we just aren’t sure what to do about it. Won’t church teach them all they need to know? NO. So it’s time for a change. Minivan ministries exists to help you, parents and caregivers (both van-loving and not) taking a spiritual stand for our kids.
So sit back with your cup of coffee or hot cocoa and dream with us as we wrestle with the realization that God gives us daily opportunities to impress Him on the hearts of our kids. Find practical ways to talk to our kids about Jesus while we continue to go on with our lives, not just cram in more.
Regardless of what you drive, you lead your kids spiritually. You are in the driver’s seat, at least for now. So take advantage of this time. Everyone else in the world is going to share what they believe with your children, so for this brief period in time while you are the world to your children, share Jesus. Grab the steering wheel, and let’s equip our kids to change the world with the love of Jesus, one little heart at a time.
