Reaching Kids

Jr. High School Children

If there is any future for the church in Japan it begins with the children. D. L. Moody once said that if he could go back and do it all over again he would have devoted his entire ministry to reaching children. (Posted by Pastor Jonathan Wilson)

Did you know that it has been written that over 70% of people who receive Christ as their Savior do it between the ages of 4 to 14 years old? Somehow I skipped that age and didn't receive Christ until I was 20. 

One of the big problems here in Japan is that there are very, very few ministry efforts going into targeting these young people who are at such a critical age in their lives. Many, many churches are populated with folks who are between 60 and 80 years old and a majority of pastors are in their 70s. There are many who are beginning to pick up the challenge to reach this group of children who are Jr. High School age.

This video will help you understand the opportunity, the critical nature of the need and perhaps it will encourage you to get more involved in the lives of these precious young people.
