Vision… Vertical Kids exists to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ in order to see lost children saved, saved children matured, and mature children multiplied for the glory of God.
Philosophy of Ministry… Our philosophy is derived from Deuteronomy 6:4-9 as God declares that He is to be worshiped as the one true God and loved with one’s entire being. This command is followed by another – that parents are to teach their children to do the same. Therefore, the children’s teachers at Harvest Bible Chapel are to come alongside the parents to “tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the LORD, and His might, and the wonders that He has done” (Psalm 78:4) so that “they should set their hope in God…” (Psalm 78:7a). Vertical Kids is a supplement to the home but never intended to be a replacement.
