100 Largest Children's Ministries in the Nation

Here is the most recent list of the largest children's ministries in the nation. This is based on Outreach Magazine's list of largest churches in the nation.

In a healthy church, children will make up 15-20% of the total attendance. In some cases, children will make up 25-30% of the total attendance. This is phenomenal and shows they are reaching lots of young families.

Before you read this list, keep this in mind. The most important number we should focus on is the number of people in our communities who do not yet know Jesus. This list contains churches that are passionate about reaching and disciplining the next generation. That is what motivates them to continue reaching more and more kids and families.

For each of us, we cannot stop until every single child and family in our community knows Jesus. We must continue to faithfully share the Gospel.

Behind every number is a person who needs Jesus. A person who Jesus died for. A person that Jesus loves. A person that we must continue to pursue with the Gospel.

I would encourage you to take some time and google some of these churches' children's ministries. See what they are doing. See what they are passionate about. See what their vision is. There is much we can learn from them.
