The Caravan ministry exists to help elementary-age children become more like Jesus by encouraging their growth in the four specific areas mentioned in Luke 2:52: mental (wisdom), physical (stature), spiritual (favor with God), and social (favor with men).
Caravan is a time for children to learn how they can grow in all areas of their lives. It also helps children develop an appreciation for and understanding of Nazarene heritage and beliefs.
What is Caravans?
Caravan is a scouting, or kids’ club, type of program that typically meets once a week on Wednesday night at 6:30.
Children are assigned to one of the four groups – Benson's Buddies (Pre-K and Kindergartners), Searchers (first and second graders), Explorers (third and fourth graders), or Adventurers (fifth and sixth graders) – according to their grade in school.
Each group is under the direction of one or more adult leaders who are called “guides.”
