Mission-Wide Children's Bible Conference in Bangladesh

Children Ministries of Bangladesh Adventist Union Mission collaborated with the regional missions to facilitate the ‘Mission-Wide Children Bible Conference’ in the different places belonging to the territories of each mission. The first Children Bible Conference was held from February 22-24, 2024, at Jalchatra Adventist Seminary & School, which belongs to North Bangladesh Mission, followed by the 2nd conference on February 28-29, 2024, at Koligram SDA Church, which belongs to the territory of South Bangladesh Mission, the 3rd on March 4-6, 2024 at Adventist Hill Tracts Seminary & School belongs to the territory of East Bangladesh Mission and finally the 4th conference on April 18-20, 2024 at Seventh-day Adventist Maranatha Seminary & School belongs to the territory of West Bangladesh Mission. The theme of the Bible Conference was focused on ‘Be a faithful Missionary’ for the Lord, Jesus Christ.   

The conference was attended by over 2,655 children sponsored by the KIM Project, 1000 Bible Movement, NSD Children Ministries, and Children Ministries of Bangladesh Adventist Union Mission, ensuring that future church leaders are well-equipped with the knowledge of God and necessary insights to integrate spiritual values and principles into their future pastoral responsibilities for the Lord, Jesus Christ.

The conference refocused on the importance of bible studies and bible stories for helping children to grow and learn in Jesus Christ. Every session of this conference aimed to impart biblical education and practical application of essential Christian values for the children through storytelling, drama context, sermon context, bible quiz and memory verse competition, and religious Christian songs. The conference reaffirmed our commitment to strengthening children’s presence at the center of our faith-based initiatives to make them faithful missionaries for the Lord Jesus Christ.

Kim WanSang, President of Bangladesh Adventist Union Mission, Kim SooKyung, Children Ministries Director, and Elder Han JongSuk were present as keynote speakers and facilitators at the Children Bible Conference. Each mission president and children ministry director served as a guiding force for hosting this beautiful and biblical-oriented program in their territories. This thought-provoking program was full of arts and crafts activities, drawing, children’s funny games, storytelling, campfiring, and devotion every morning and evening.

The conference gave a platform for the children’s engagement to promote greater awareness among the community through outdoor cleaning, hospital visitation & prayer, distributions of health-related leaflets, health screening service, and other community service as well. The conference re-educated every child to work together with a unique mission of igniting their candle of faith in the people living around them. It inspired them to lead a life of devotion and service that reflects their Christ-like character.
