It is my heart to reach the lost children in the world who for whatever reason or another would be harder to reach than most.
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 age 18. One half of children who come to Christ are led by parents. After age 21 the conversion rate is only 1/4 of believers. Today, not many 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.
If you would like to volunteer we would greatly appreciate it, just use the contact me form and send me your information. We can use volunteers in any city and state in the United States.
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.
