It is well recognised that ministering to children is very important. Amongst other reasons, We know that:
- Children are a priority to the Saviour
- Most people who ‘come to faith’ do so under the age of 18
- Our children will be our future leaders; influencers in church, business and community
- Parents go where their kids are loved, nurtured, prioritised
- Children will invite their parents to come to ‘their church’
“The Salvation Army needs to focus on reaching children for Jesus. There are children in dysfunctional homes, there are children in violent neighbourhoods, there are children who will grow up without the gospel at all. The Salvation Army needs to make reaching children for Jesus and training them up in their faith one of its main priorities. This will be the focus of my ministry.
(General Linda Bond, War Cry, Issue 26, February, 2011)
