Teach to Reach
Unfortunately, many Christians think that discipleship means sitting someone down in a Bible study
for several years before they are mature enough (or “ready”) to start witnessing themselves. Take
the approach with the children that teaching them to evangelize is part of the discipleship
process. There are three steps:
Be warned - believing children are usually very enthusiastic about being able to share the
Gospel effectively with others (even adults) and are likely to challenge you!
- Teach them how to witness.
The Wordless Book is simple to present to children and to be used
by children. Take it a page-a-week. Teach them the content on the page, demonstrate it and
have them practice it with each other.
- Teach them to witness.
By example. Take them with you and let them watch you share the Gospel with other children. Let
them give part of the message of salvation.
- Wind them up and let ‘em go!
Continue to encourage them and give them opportunities to tell about what is happening as they
witness to others. Help by making opportunities available for them to do some open-air
evangelism with you outside of your classroom time.
