Many personal decisions to follow Jesus are made during the childhood years and we feel honored to support parents during this time. When your child reaches school age (we suggest around age 5), we encourage parents to checkout these resources that include: helping a child understand Biblical salvation, indicators that your son or daughter might be ready to choose to follow Jesus, and training in praying for/with your child as they make this life-changing decision.
We believe that the most important thing we can do to help our kids walk in obedience to Jesus is to foster the attitude that we Thirst First for God. As they begin to read (around 3rd grade) this can be a great opportunity to challenge them in developing a closer relationship with Jesus. Check out these resources on what time spent with Jesus can look like and ideas to challenge them to make that a regular part of their lives as they grow in their pursuit of Jesus.
Often, one of the first real expressions of our faith is showing ourselves faithful with our time, talents and treasure. As your son/daughter reaches 5th grade, we encourage you to check out these resources to help them steward what they’ve been given. One of the best gifts you can give your child is to help them discover their gifts, instruct them on the importance of tithing, and encourage them to serve Jesus with their time and talents as they give sacrificially.
