The Discipleship and Family Ministry Department places great importance on ministry to Mississippi’s youngest and most precious citizens.
Our Preschool and Children’s ministry is aimed at providing a good foundation for all of the rest of life. This ministry is many facetted.
We seek to provide support for Mississippi Baptist Churches’ on going discipleship training program for Preschoolers and Children. This
includes age group teacher training in association clinics and in local churches. Training can be provided by our department’s preschool and
children’s ministry in TeamKID, Bible Buddies, Bible Drill, dated Preschool and
Children’s Discipleship literature, and FUNdamentals study units. Many times our support for churches takes the form of personal
consultations in personal visits on the local church field. Mississippi Baptists have long lead the Southern Baptist Convention in Bible
Drill. Our department is responsible for resourceing Children’s Bible Drill and conducting State Bible Drills. One way we support Bible
Drills is by offering an Older Children’s Bible Drill camp at Central Hills Baptist Retreat. Younger Children can prepare for Bible Drills
and learn Bible skills by participating in Bible Buddies.
