2. Kids as a Mission Field – SSCM Level One0 (0)
Children up to the age of 19 make up nearly one third of the world’s population, and yet the Church prefers to focus on adults for discipling, equipping, teaching, not realizing that childhood is the time God designed people to receive the Gospel. While only 6% of people accept Christ as adults, and only 4% as teenagers, as many as 32% of children receive Jesus when given the opportunity. Yet their salvation is many times belittled at worst and undervalued at best. In this teaching we share challenging statistics of why we need to concentrate on evangelizing and discipling children more aggressively as church leaders. After all, the Muslims are having great success discipling their kids.
