Welcome to the Matthew Initiative!

“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.” 

   Matthew 19:14

At the Matthew Initiative, we believe that children’s ministries is the most strategic ministry in the church today. In order to reach the goals of our mission statement, we provide the following services for new churches and churches that need to re-start their programs to children:

  • Curriculum materials, resources, materials, and supplies
  • Staffing Expertise
  • On site staff mentoring
  • Development of the volunteer staff
  • Strategic planning and evaluation of program for children

We do not provide a consulting service, but rather a hands on mentoring experience for churches selected to become Matthew Initiative churches.   This relationship happens over a period of time, on an average of 6 to 12 months depending on the individual circumstances of the church .  That makes the Matthew Initiative unique in it’s vision and delivery of services to churches seeking to grow or re-grow their children’s ministries programs.   As a non profit organization, we do not charge for our services.  However, we do ask for an upfront commitment from the total church and volunteers to work with us in building an exciting and dynamic children’s program for your church and community.

The Matthew Initiative has a great cause, and we need your help.  Click the donate button to make a tax deductable contribution to The Matthew Initiative .  We are hearing from many churches who also need this kind of help, so your contribution will make it possible for us to help them soon.

Please pray for our financial campaign that is underway, the staff , the churches and especially the children of the Matthew Initiative.

    • Hi Anne:
      Thanks for reaching out to us about voting for your favorite clergy celebrity.
      We will be going live with text voting, after all of our clergy have been “revealed”.
      If you want to vote now, go to our Website, and scroll down to our pay pal donate button and make a donation designated for your clergy celebrity. When you make the donation, just put the clergy celebrity you are donating for in the message box, and we will make sure those votes go in the total right now.

      Hope this helps, and hope to see you there.

      Sharon Yancey
