Olympians

Building habits to develop their faith
(Elementary)

forming essential spiritual habits

Envisioning the Christian life as a race, our Olympian program features the Olympic theme and urges children to “go for the gold” in their pursuit of godliness. We provide the resources, training and encouragement for leaders to guide children in forming essential spiritual habits. Parent resources are also built in to help parents take a step into true discipleship with their own children.

Ministry Coaches

Each church has a youth ministry coach available to assist in the most effective implementation of the Word of Life disciple-making tools and resources. They also look for opportunities to visit an Olympian meeting to offer encouragement and to build relationships with your leadership team. If you need help, your ministry coach is ready to serve you. Just give him a call.
