WHY WE OFFER A WORSHIP CAMP FOR KIDS: Children are an integral part of what God wants to do in the earth. We agree with well-known worship author and teacher, Vivien Hibbert, that every time God's people gather to worship, He wants to accomplish these three things:
- Revelation: He reveals himself (His thoughts and character) through various parts of the gathering.
- Administration: Those who are keepers of the sights and sounds of God can help facilitate the expression of His heart to the people.
- Transformation: We are changed as we receive Gods revelation of Himself in various ways.
THE W.A.K.E Staff is committed to be be tools to see "this generation praise His works to another ."
