Have you wondered how to counsel a child who has already received Christ but doubts his salvation? What do you do for a child who thinks he/she has to accept Christ every time he/she commits a sin? How can you help the child who has no victory over sin? What can you do for the child who wants to commit his/her whole life to the Lord? What about the child who needs to receive Christ? These are questions that will be answered in this class session so you can be confident that you will be able to effectively counsel the saved boys and girls in your class.

But the way Jesus interacted with children and his disciples resulted in those people’s deep faith and closeness to Him. He called them friends.

Part of our job as we live for God is to be a spiritual teacher to the next generation (Proverbs 22:6). This interactive workshop is designed to encourage parents, grandparents, mentors and teachers to be intentional about using everyday life experiences as an opportunity to teach loved ones and others about God and spiritual matters. In this session, we’ll take a brief look at what the Bible says about guiding, training and teaching our family and those around us, and then consider ways we can train ourselves to be more aware of ordinary life events and observations (nature, media, work/school experiences, conversations) in order to utilize them as a spiritual lesson or example. We’ll close the session looking at the importance of consistently being in God’s Word in our roles as teachers, spending a few minutes engaging God’s Word together. It’s never too early or too late to positively influence those around us. Have courage to be spiritually intentional!
