    I remember when someone first told me that a ministry was simply a strategy. I felt like a big penny dropped! AWANA, Sunday School, and bus ministry are simply strategies to reach children for Christ. Strategies come and go. Maybe reaching adults (i.e. parents) – in the long run – is a wiser strategy for reaching children for Christ.

    Yeah. I mean, I think it really depends on where a church is at as well as far as size, gifting of the members, location, culture, etc. I can imagine that for some, pursuing children specifically may be the best strategy, at least for a time. But certainly not for all–or even most.

    For my family it was my brother, sister and I being reached that brought my father to church. I have seen the same thing happen a number of times but I agree that it definitely depends on the area your in and the people in that area.

    Hey Mel,

    Yeah, your family is an example of a success story in this realm where three children get saved and then the father later gets saved. This is probably the goal of most ministries to children. But I wonder how often it really does happen…
