We have a divine drive, burden, and passion to do something in ministry with children that matters. I mean, that REALLY matters. Something …
…that lasts more than a week
…that transforms the way they see themselves and the world
…that persists through trial and loss
…that will remain through adolescence and into adulthood
…that still lingers and affects them long after they’ve forgotten us
That is why we want to be FOCUSED and INTENTIONAL about WHY we do WHAT we do, and HOW we plan to do it.
Here is our modus operandi, our game plan, our ethos as a team.
If you are joining GHKids or have been with us a while, we desire and expect that these ideas are not something we read and toss aside.
Is it lived...

THE PURPOSE (MISSION) OF GREENHOUSE KIDS
Greenhouse Kids exists to help every child become a passionate, life-long follower of Jesus Christ.
THE WIN FOR GREENHOUSE KIDS
We win when kids have meaningful interactions during group that influence their faith in Jesus and deepen their relationships with others.
THE CORE VALUES (SEEDS) OF GREENHOUSE KIDS
We are committed to created experiences and environments that help every child grow in their relationship with God, the church, and the lost and broken world. We do this by focusing on the SEEDS of our ministry:
SHEPHERDING We want to love kids well. We want every kid known, loved, noticed, missed, and deeply cared for. Out leaders are not just a part of their Sundays, they are a part of their lives.
ENGAGING We want to engage the imaginations of every child who visits - Christian or not - causing their hearts to be humbled and amazed with the greatness of our God. We are committed to creativity, fun and surprise are techniques that cause kids to “lean in” and connect personally with the Bible.
EXTRA MILE Our team is committed to a "whatever it takes to reach them" attitude. This requires a genuine willingness to be innovative, unconventional and "child-like" in our ministry philosophy and programs. It is going above and beyond the weekly commitment of “showing up.”
DEEP The Bible is not intended to be informational but transformational. Our desire at Greenhouse Kids is to lead children to love God, love His Word and love His people, and to live heroic lives our of an overflow of that love.
SAFE We are committed to protecting our kids through training, awareness, and an uncompromising safety process. We want parents to have peace leaving their children with us.
