Why Have a Kid's Ministry?


The time to lay a solid foundation for Christ is while students are in 1st through 6th grade. We are striving to promote Biblical literacy, Biblical foundations, and service through our children's ministry.

We believe parents should be equipped to lead their children and we are here to partner with you as you raise your kids to love God and others.  We also believe banana splits and laughing is pretty important too!

Sunday School

On Sunday mornings at 9:30 Adventure Kids gather to learn and grow in their understanding of who Jesus is and what he’s done for us. Each class provides age-specific teaching and learning activities that are geared towards engaging children and helping them understand the Gospel. 

Each of our classes is led by trained teachers and leaders who are committed to God’s Word and a desire to foster spiritual growth in the hearts and minds of our kids.

Our ultimate goal is to come alongside parents as they train their children in the ways of God. We hope that week by week, we fulfill the Lord’s command

Sunday Mornings

At 10:30 on Sunday mornings Adventure Kids meets in a rally style meeting where awesome Bible games are played, snacks and prizes are given out, and of course, a relevant Bible lesson is taught.  Mr. Nino and his team have a heart for kids and their love for teaching God's Word to the next generation is evident.

Safety First!

Your kid's safety is our number one goal in Adventure Kids. All of our kid's ministries provide a loving, safe environment for children. Each of our volunteers is required to be a member of the church and must go through an application process that includes a background check, fingerprint screening, and ministry specific training.

Meet Our Children's Pastor, LJ Nino.

Hi, I am LJ Nino! I am privileged to serve as the children’s pastor of Mountain Avenue Baptist Church. I began my relationship with Jesus Christ in the spring of 2006 while attending a midweek youth service here at MABC. My life would never be the same! I began to attend services and grow in my relationship with Him and eventually began serving in our children’s ministry. I graduated from Bible college in 2014 and joined our Christian school staff the same year.

     My wife Jessica and I were married here in 2018 and have been serving together ever since. Our family loves spending time together every chance we get, especially with good food! We are privileged to serve the families of our community and partner with you as you discover God’s incredible plan for your life!
