A bus or van ministry provides the local church an opportunity to obey Christ’s command to “go and make disciples of all nations”. Through this ministry unchurched children hear and respond to the Gospel. But a bus or van ministry goes beyond evangelism. Through the discipleship ministries of the local church the children also participate in discipleship ministries such as Sunday school and children’s worship. Through a bus or van ministry the local church moves outside its walls into the streets of the neighborhoods around it. The church becomes known to the people of the neighborhoods not just as a building but as a group of caring people. Also, the church gets to know the people—who they are, what their lives are like, what their needs are. From this awareness the church can develop ministries that are honestly relevant to the people living around them.
The goal is to go out into the highways and hedges and compel them to come in. The children in the community need to hear that the Lord Jesus loves them and died for them. We want to see many children come to Christ through the bus ministry.
To see many children come to Christ and set up an established church bus route in the Kerrville area. We pray to have many buses running in the future bringing many precious souls to Christ.
