DESCRIPTION:
At DUCC, we are as serious about instilling a passion for God in the younger generation as we are for our adults. We want to help children grow up in the Lord and partner with parents as they train their children to know and love Christ. This ministry is committed to being a conduit of healing and wholeness to a broken generation while nurturing their spirits, souls, and bodies. It is called to serve as a resource championing spiritual, educational, and emotional prosperity for young people and their families in the Harrisonburg area.
