Welcome to Living Hope’s Caravan Ministry
“And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men” (Luke 2:52).
The Caravan ministry exists to help elementary-age children become more like Jesus by encouraging their growth in the four specific areas mentioned in Luke 2:52: mental (wisdom), physical (stature), spiritual (favor with God), and social (favor with men).
Caravan is a time for children to learn how they can grow in all areas of their lives. It also helps children develop an appreciation for and understanding of Nazarene heritage and beliefs.
What is Caravan?
Caravan is a dynamic Christian scouting program that meets once a week on Wednesday nights. Children (from ages 3 through 5th grade) are assigned to one of the four major groups – Benson Buddies, Searchers, Explorers, or Adventurers – according to their grade in school. Each group is under the direction of one or more adult leaders who are called “guides.”
What is the mission?
The Caravan ministry is a valuable tool to help a child BE TRANSFORMED as they stand out for Christ. There is a strong commitment to the physical, social, mental & spiritual growth of each child. Children earn badges, go on outings, and take part in special activities. It is a wonderful journey where they will learn about their world, their church, and God!
