What's in a name?

At PromiselandOnline we deeply desire to create an online community for those of us sold out to the cause of building childrens' ministries that will truly prevail in today's world.

So many of you have moved far beyond "Sunday School" to give your ministry a name that captures the vision God has given YOU to reach the children in your church.

We're compiling a list of childrens' ministry names, publishing it Online, and hoping to bring about inspiration, encouragement, and the opportunity to pray for each other as we give God our best to reach children in all parts of the WORLD.
