Each and everyone of Christ’s passions were evident in his interaction with Children, and we want to put that same priority on our kids. We seek to carry out all 4 of our passions as a church with intentionality as we raise up our children in the ways of God. We teach them to peruse God’s presence through prayer and worship. We desire to engage our kids as a community, welcoming them into relationship and actively making space for them in everything we do. We take the discipleship of our kids seriously, and invite them into an active journey with God through teaching, training, and by recognizing and releasing them to things God has called them too as individuals. Finally, we release our kids into mission, believing that they have much to offer the world around them.
Know that VIA Kids are a priority to us at VIA Comox Valley, and we make every effort to pour into their lives. Our hope and prayer is that our Kids would surpass us in every way. We want to lead them into a true and living faith that allows them to know God personally, and will with out a doubt shape the World around them.
