No one can deny that today’s influences factoring in our children’s overall development can be dangerous. They are being reached from every angle by varying  social, political, and religious views. Technology has become their nurse and mentor.  Everything has become impersonal, superficial, and, let’s face it—with zero relevance, contributing nothing to the desired growth of the child. With that disturbing fact, we realize that we can play a huge role in battling it. 

Fact: children need to know Jesus.  They need to know the Truth—that He loves them, that He died for them, and that He wants to have a personal relationship with them.  We affirm that one of our main goals is to introduce Jesus to them. “We will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, His power, and the wonders He has done. He decreed statutes and established the law, which He commanded our ancestors to teach their children, so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children. Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget His deeds but would keep His commands.” (Psalm 78:3–7)

In this generation, there is an  influx of information, leaving no room for undeniable Truth. These kids are left with no goals, no vision, and no reason to live for. 

Children are precious in God’s sight. If we read the Scriptures, we will realize that children are not just mentioned, but are very prominent in the Bible.  Indeed, there are more than 1,500 references to children and childhood (including orphans). Very often children and youth are found playing important, even crucial roles in the outworking of God’s plans. The question is not how many children in our society are ‘unreached’. The question is who will reach out to them?

At San Fernando Christian Community, upgrading is a way of life. With the desire of improving the foundation, skills, and knowledge of the Champion Kids volunteers, SFCC invited  CEF (Child Evangelism Fellowship) to conduct a 5-day training on Teaching Children Effectively.  The course is designed to offer a fresh approach to evangelizing and teaching children based on spiritual and educational principles. The objectives of the course includes providing increased knowledge about the spiritual needs of children, using effective methods of evangelism, and making use of practical ideas to make learning enjoyable.

With these added skills, SFCC is confident that more kids will be blessed.

The TCE students take turns presenting their prepared demo teaching. After that, they get critiqued and are given pointers.
