Church: The Hope for Every Child
YOU GET THE NUMBERS
- In Africa, 50% of the population of 1.3 billion are under the age of 20.
- In India, there are over 500 million under the age of 20.
- More than one billion people under the age of 20 between Africa and India alone.
YOU GET EFFECTIVENESS
“The Great Commission applies to children as well as to adults. Children, more than any other people group, are receptive to the gospel. Nearly half of the population of every country within the 10/40 Window is also in the 4/14 Window. Where the churches are growing, most of the new converts are under the age of 18.” Dan Brewster
“We must prioritize our efforts to reach the world’s largest, most receptive and most moldable group—the 4- to 14-year-olds.” Luis Bush
“People who become Christian before their teen years are more likely than those who are converted when older to remain ‘absolutely committed’ to Christianity.”3
Numbers plus receptivity equals effectiveness. You get it.
YOU ARE CONVINCED CHRIST IS THE HOPE OF THE WORLD
Spurgeon said, “The Church is the world’s hope. As Christ is the hope of the Church, so the Church is the hope of the world.”
Would you just imagine with us a world where every child has access to a church that have teachers and leaders who believe children need to be valued and discipled?
Christ truly is the hope of the world and a group of disciples – the church – are Christ’s hope for children in every community where a church exists.
YOU BELIEVE WHAT JESUS SAYS ABOUT CHILDREN
First, Jesus said, “Let the Children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.” Luke 18:16 ESV“
… ‘Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me.’” Matthew 18:3-5 ESV What Jesus says about children answers the question, Why a church for every child?
