Crusaders Children’s Church


childrenWe are a team of dedicated leaders, teachers, deacons, parents, and volunteer workers whose hearts God has stirred and connected with His heart for our children.

Our mission is to identify and help raise-up a new breed of leaders and ministers unlike any we have ever seen before. We teach the foundations of faith and train, model, and activate children in the work of the ministry. We do not believe God has to wait until children are grown up before He uses them.

Crusaders Children’s Church (C 3) works together with the Prophetic, Evangelistic, Pastoral, Helps, Counseling/Deliverance, and Intercessory Prayer ministries of our church.

We fully support and uphold the vision that God has given Apostle John Eckhardt, our Senior Overseer. We also welcome and require parent participation in our curriculum and activities.

The Children’s Church gatherings consists of corporate prophetic praise and worship, giving of offerings, ministry of the word, altar ministry, activation, and discipleship classes.

Children, ages 4 to 12 have a corporate session beginning at 11:00 a.m. During this session, they pray, give offering, and review memory scriptures. Afterwards they break up into five discipleship classes:

  • Ages 4-5 years (Pre-K & Kindergarten)
  • Ages 6-7 years (1st & 2nd Grades)
  • Ages 8-9 years (3rd & 4th Grades)
  • Ages 10-12 years Girls (5th, 6th, 7th, 8th Grades)
  • Ages 10-12 years Boys (5th, 6th, 7th, 8th Grades)

Discipleship classes include a lesson from the curriculum developed for the year. The lesson is then reinforced by an activity to engage the children in participation and memory of the Bible lesson. After three weeks of teaching a lesson topic, a C3 Sunday corporate service is held (usually on the 4th Sunday of the month).

The children participate in praise and worship. There are class presentations to demonstrate the children’s understanding of the lesson and memory scriptures. Thereafter, there is a guest speaker, children’s church leader, or teacher who will teach the children about evangelism/missions.
