Blast Ministry makes it possible for us to enjoy the service while feeling comfortable that our child is being well cared for and spiritually fed.

Everything I could say about Victory's Children's Ministry can be seen in the light in my daughter's eyes when she talks about God. Not only is she well cared for and having fun while my husband and I are in service, but she is learning what God says about her and is building a foundation that will keep her steady and grounded for a lifetime.

Because of Blast Ministry, my children are grasping bigger God concepts. They remember what they learn in church and are applying it.

Blast Ministry means that my children are learning how to successfully grow up having a strong relationship with God.

Blast Ministry means that they are not just playing games and doing coloring sheets. They are learning that they have authority over things in Jesus' name.

I have watched my children grow in their relationship with God as a result of being a part of BLAST. The way they are taught the Word of God has profoundly impacted their ability to understand scriptures and apply the basic principles of walking with God in their everyday lives. What my children learn at BLAST enhances the time that we spend as a family talking about God.

Zach has been very much impacted by the people and the teaching from Blast. One of them gave him scripture to help him when he was afraid, and he kept it under his pillow for years. He received the baptism of the Holy Spirit at his second year of camp. Zach has matured in the Lord and is now having an impact on teens in Thrive because of all the care he received in Blast. Thanks!

One day when I was coming home from school on the bus, some kids in the back were teasing me and calling me names. I told them I don't care what you call me because I know who's child I am. They said, "Ooh, are you going to tell your mom?" I said, "No, I'm going to tell my heavenly Daddy and He'll deal with YOU!" I learned this at Victory and my parents stress this to me all the time.

My son looks forward to coming to Blast so much! He is having fun, learning to walk with God, and has gained great desire to share the love of God with his friends. Blast Camp is one of the greatest highlights of our summer! We never want to miss it. What an amazing team of dedicated and loving people Blast provides to care for our kids. I thank God for the influence they are having on my son.

My two-year-old still has a very limited vocabulary, but recently he just started saying, "Hallelujah, praise the Lord, and God bless you," every time he sees the Bible. We've been at Victory for almost one year, and I'm pretty sure he must have picked that up at church. We have three kids and they are all learning so much at Victory. We are so grateful to you for all you have sown into our family!

My daughter enjoys coming to Victory, as the Blast teachers make learning about Jesus interesting and fun. She asked for a Bible after the first time she attended Victory so that she could take it to class and follow the scriptures. Most importantly, my daughter knows now that Jesus is someone she can turn to when in doubt and in times of trouble, and not someone she has to earn her grace from.

I didn't see myself as a teacher, but as I started teaching at Blast, I prayed that God would help me see the lesson as a 4-year-old would. It has helped me develop my skill to teach them. When they interact and repeat things taught, I can see that God is at work. Sowing into children's lives impacts my growth in the Lord because it took me out of my comfort zone and I had to rely on Him.

My daughter Elin is 2. Blast helped her to know who Jesus is and about His love. She prays with little help and it's fun to hear everything she wants to bless. I'm grateful Elin is growing up as a Christian. Each time we enter the church parking lot, she gets excited. Last week she said, "Mommy, church, Jesus, kids—I found it!" entering the parking lot, as if she lost it. I'm very grateful to Blast!

All I know is that my girls are aware of the days they attend Victory and make sure that they don't miss it! Thank you!

My wife Marie and I have two young daughters that attend Blast. Reagan is 3 years old and Mikayla is 10 months. It is AWESOME to see the joy of the Lord in both of them after each of their services! Hearing Reagan quote her weekly Bible verse is a blessing to our ears. I definitely enjoy the car rides home. It's a blessing to know that they have begun walking with God at a very early start.

We moved to Pittsburgh in 2004 so our son could attend the blind school here—one of the best in the nation. Jacob has never progressed beyond a 9-month-old child developmentally, so he has always required one-on-one care. Endless Possibilities at Victory has allowed my husband and I to attend church together—something we thank God for daily!

My son Max is 8 years old. We go to the 9 a.m. service on Sundays and most of the time he says, "Can we stay for the 11 a.m. service, too?" It is a blessing to hear my son tell me the Bible lessons he has learned, the songs he sings, and the friends he has made, but most of all, I see the love he has for Jesus growing stronger everyday! Thank you, Blast Ministry!
