Children's Pastor Lauren Bishop

Pastor Lauren was an aspiring law student when she felt the Holy Spirit nudging her to follow Him instead. By faith she left the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and moved back to Spartanburg. Without any plan, she sought after God until little by little He revealed her next steps. She is currently enrolled in Bible school through the Assemblies of God District School of Ministry and serving over the children's ministry at Bethel Assembly. She feels that she will eventually be called to missions.

Children's church is not a babysitting service. Children's ministry is just that - a ministry. It is our mission to pour into the children, to raise up warriors for the Kingdom, to impart wisdom, and to ingrain scripture! Children are not immune to the Enemy's schemes. In fact, society bears witness to the fact that Satan is after our children with a vengeance. He is determined to stop the mighty move of God that is to come through them, but, hallelujah, we already know that we are victorious!

Children's church is a place where the Holy Spirit is welcome. Using interactive lessons and fun scripture memorization, we pray that kids learn of the great power they possess through Jesus Christ. We seek to train them up in the effectiveness of prayer. Most of all, we exist to see souls saved.
