The purpose of Children of The Harvest ministry is to make disciples of Jesus Christ by equipping Dakotas Conference churches for children's ministries and by providing a connection for ministries beyond local churches, allowing the children of the Dakotas to experience God's love and grow in faith.

The Need for this Ministry
Children are the real victims of a deteriorating society and family structure. Their situation demands our attention.
"Jesus called for them and said, let the little children come unto me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs."
~ Luke 18:16 NRSV

Children are victims of many forms of poverty. Spiritual poverty has devastating effects. To be deprived of the love and hope of Christ and the church robs the abundant life that Christ intends for all.

Our Ministry Focus
We are focused upon children, especially children in poverty and those spiritually at risk in the Dakotas Conference.
We recognize that our goals are humanly impossible without divine intervention, and the involvement of the churches of this conference. Together we must seek God's guidance in this ministry, seeking always to be instruments of God's love in the communities of the Dakotas and the world.

What Can Your Church Do?
We want to share the Children of The Harvest ministry with you and your church. We pray that this ministry will become a voice for children in the Dakotas Conference who are at risk in today's society. It is our hope in Christ that the number of Christian disciples who care and become advocates for the children at risk in this conference will grow as churches reach out and begin new children's ministries in their communities.

We stand willing to help in any manner possible in the development of new ministries.

We ask you to support our ministry by having a focused time of prayer in your church or in your personal prayer life. Include local, state and federal officials and politicians who influence the structures and funding of programs that affect children. Who are your representatives and how can you take action for children?

Financial contributions to Children of the Harvest ministries may be placed in the offering plate of your local United Methodist Church or mailed to the Dakotas Conference Treasurer (Conference Account #639), P.O. Box 460, Mitchell, SD 57301-0460.
