One of the most visited pages on this blog is a post I wrote years ago about naming your ministry. The comments have been active for years. It seems like people want ideas on what to name their ministry. I’ve been in ministry for nearly 20 years and I’ve renamed/rebranded a ministry five different times. Sometimes it’s been the result of a complete and total ministry overhaul. Sometimes it’s simply been out of a need to refresh.

Renaming a ministry can be challenging. The desire to be both original and unique to your specific environment may seem impossible. However, one of the things I like to do is get inspiration from others. What are others calling their ministries? When exploring all the options, I might find a name I absolutely love or maybe it leads to a line of thought that leads to the perfect name. So, I’m going to do you a favor. Below I’ve compiled a list of some of the fastest growing churches in America and the names of their Children’s Ministries. Some have names for multiple age groups. I’ll include them all.
