Hey! My name is David Brock and I am currently serving as the Family Life Pastor at Calvary Church in Irwin, PA. I have served in children’s and family ministry for well over a decade on puppetry teams, drama teams, Sunday School teacher, Small Group leader, volunteer trainer, have pioneered an evangelism team at my alma matter, Valley Forge Christian College, called Light Children’s Ministries evangelizing and sharing the Gospel with children and families across the North East, and much more.
I have devoted my life to following Jesus and His will for my life. I live every day following God’s call on my life to both minister to children and families as well as train up new leaders to reach their highest potential in ministry while fully relying on God. I strongly believe that in order to effectively minister to children that you must also be able to minister to their families.
Train a child in the way he should go,
and when he is old he will not turn from it.
Proverbs 22:6 (NIV 1984)
Not only do I believe that children should be shown Jesus through example, teaching and guidance, but I also believe that they are just as equipped to minister as anybody else! In the same way I encourage and train up volunteers in ministry, I encourage every child in their giftings/ministries. Children can help run sound, tell a Bible story, use a puppet, sing a song, the list goes on. I want to train up a child in the way of serving others to be more like Jesus.
