The most vital mission field of the church is growing fast - and growing up all around us. How will we connect today's children to the full impact of the Gospel while we can still reach them?
God created children in His image. That alone give them inherent worth, and means God has expectations about their dignity and development. In fact, God's goal is nothing less than "life to the full" for each one (John 10:10).
A full life means a whole life. Yet as Dan Brewster makes clear in Future Impact, many children today face almost overwhelming barriers, like poverty and prejudice, that deny them the wholeness for which God created them. Our challenge? The church is uniquely called to remove those barriers for the children in our midst and around the world.
Join Dan Brewster in this insightful study of children and their rightful place in the church's mission strategy. In this book, you'll explore:
-The theological foundations of ministry to children
-The ethics of child evangelism across cultures
-The components of biblical, holistic child development
-Practical applications of church-based child development programs
-Why childhood years have proven to be the prime time for people to both hear and respond to the gospel
-Unexpected resources to enhance the effectiveness of your outreach to children
Discover why children have been, and continue to be, one of God's most cherished resources in advancing His kingdom. You'll never see a child in the same way again.
