We’re still cleaning up from all the construction around here. We’re scheduled to launch officially sometime later this summer, but we’re glad you found your way here early. We always welcome visitors. The mission of Divorce Ministry 4 Kids is to equip those who work with children, particularly those in children’s ministry, to effectively minister to children whose parents are going through, or have been, divorced. The number of children in the United States whose parents are divorced grows by over 1,000,000 children each year. We owe it to those kids to learn how best to serve them. You can find out more about the why behind this ministry in this article written on one of my other sites.
When this site launches, I hope to include a variety of articles and resources to equip people in children’s ministry, and the church in general, to serve children of divorce. I hope in doing that that this site will also be useful to parents, family friends, and anyone else with a heart for these kids. So, what can you do now to help us?
- Fill out, and/or publicize, the Children of Divorce survey. This short, confidential on-line survey is for people over the age of 18 whose parents divorce before they turned eighteen. It is only 8 questions about your parents’ divorce and how it affected you, and it will help us to better serve child who are currently going through the same thing. It you fit the criteria, please fill it out. If you don’t please pass it along to people who you know who could fill it out, and help us to publicize the survey.
- Like our page on facebook. There is a box on the left hand side of this page (or right if I can’t make up my mind where I want the sidebar) where you can easily like the page.
- Follow us on twitter. We won’t be using the account until the site goes “live,” but you can follow us now so that you’ll be ready.
If you have any other suggestions for the site, please leave them in the comments below. We are definitely open to suggestions. In case you’re wondering, the background color was picked at the suggestion of my eight year old daughter and ten year old son. I’m still a bit iffy on it, but I’ve got some time to think about it! Let me know what you think.
