It is statistically proven that children, ages 1-12 have a 42% acceptance rate of Jesus at an early age if they hear the gospel. Two thirds of Christians came to faith before the age of 18. One half of children who come to Christ are led by their parents. After age 21 the conversion rate is only 1/4 of believers.
Today, not many unsaved parents take their children to church, so the problem is how do we reach them away from their parents? Some ideas I have researched are hand them a track after or before school. Go to parks and hand them a track or speak to them about Jesus there. A costlier form of evangelism to children is online, but can prove to be quite effective since many of them even at a young age have cell phones. I was saved at age 40 and my daughter was 15. One year after me at age 16 my daughter by the grace of God accepted Jesus and was baptized at the same local Christian Church as I was.
One great regret I have is that I did not make an effort to place my daughter in a christian school as she was growing up. Other children who do not have Christian parents will influence your children unlike anything and you may not even be aware of how dangerous this is for your child. Had I avoided that while she was growing up it would have helped her greatly. I would never put another child in the public school system ever again. Especially today, when they are pushing transgender on innocent children who don't have the ability to make the right choices yet for themselves.
Do your child a big favor and put them in a Christian elementary school. Don't allow them to be anywhere near other kids who can change their mind about Godly things and steer them well when they are little. This way when they are older and on their own they will make the right decisions. Once these children are released into the matrix that is out there - the world - they will be able to see the truth better and this will help guide them throughout life.
Teach your children that the standard for right and wrong is the Bible not what our society is teaching them, this way when they are older they will know how to make the right decisions. They will know to go to the bible for answers on what God wants for their life instead of what their frinds tell them to do.Teach them this at a young age.

Church ministries face several obstacles when it comes to children’s ministry, such as the belief that it is simply babysitting, a lack of budget, and little acknowledgement or support from other ministry areas.
Children’s ministers may not be viewed as real leaders, and their roles may be diminished in comparison to other staff members. However, research shows that children’s ministry plays a crucial role in getting families involved in ministry and increasing overall church growth. Families with kids in the children’s ministry are among the most committed and loyal members, and a healthy children’s ministry attracts families to the church. On the other hand, an unhealthy or declining children’s ministry program may result in families leaving the church. Therefore, it is essential to prioritize and support children’s ministry for the growth and health of the church. For a great article I wrote after researching several different papers and articles about the subject go to my blog to read it.
