HTH: Your Church’s Children Can (And Should) be Involved in Missions


This recent article by Taylor Johnson, former missionary to Cape Town, South Africa, was posted on the International Mission Board website ( Johnsons discusses both the Scriptural why and the practical how concerning the involvement of children in missions. He makes the case that any disciple of Christ, no matter how young, can participate in the vital life of God’s kingdom through missions. Check it out:

“Some may think kids are too young to participate in missions. But if a child is a Christian, she, too, can be involved in the Great Commission, starting with the partnership between the church and the home. Parents are their kids’ primary disciplers, but the church and home can work together to raise a generation of children with a biblical worldview focused on the mission of Jesus.”
