For Parents


Dear Sojourn Parents and Caregivers,

Thank you for letting us serve your family by teaching and caring for your children. As a dad of three girls myself, I don’t take it lightly anytime a family entrusts their children into our care.

Our goal is simple:

We want to show Jesus to kids and families so they grow to be like him and go to tell others about him.

We believe this will be accomplished when:

  • We parents grow in our own love for the gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • SojournKids leaders partner with parents to teach and model the gospel to children.
  • Methods of instruction and interaction are used that are both effective and age-appropriate.

We believe that only the good news of Jesus Christ can change children, families, neighborhoods, and schools.  As we minister the gospel to children and families, we are participating in Sojourn’s larger vision of reaching people with the gospel, building up the church, and releasing the church into the world.

If you have questions, feel free to chat with me before or after a service at Midtown, meet with me during the week, or send me a note anytime (
