It’s Just A Phase So Don’t Miss It
Reggie Joiner & Kristen Ivy
Every church knows that kids matter. Does your church act like every kid matters at every phase? A phase is a timeframe in a kid’s life when you can leverage distinctive opportunities to influence their future. It’s Just A Phase is a challenge for churches to treat every kid who breathes like they are made in the image of God.
These were released at Orange Conference 2015 so you could bring an important part of the Phase message home with you. Consider this a 10,000 foot view of each Phase. There are 12 cards available (1 for each phase). Sold in packs of 25.
Phase summaries give a cliffsnotes version of what’s changing at every phase from Zero to One through Graduation. Each summary includes a brief description of the phase, growth & developmental insights, simple techniques for influencing a kid’s mind and heart, and a roadmap for discipleship. Share these six-panel phase summaries with parents on promotion Sunday, as part of a birthday gift, or use them as conversation starters.

Every life has big moments to celebrate. Baby dedication. First day of school. Getting a driver’s license. Graduation. These are life-stage milestones—the events that mark and celebrate a significant moment or change in a person’s story.

We say, “ Why not keep the party going?!”

Phase Video Shorts
|Time is always moving. We can’t slow it down. We can’t stop it. We can’t reverse it. But if we aren’t careful, we can miss it. When it comes to the lives of the children and teenagers growing up around us, they are changing faster than we realize. The phase they are in now, won’t be around forever. And with every phase comes distinctive opportunities we can leverage to influence their future as long as we don’t miss it. Sometimes we need a reminder to pause and lean into their world.
