          Leading a Child to Christ—
             The Salvation ABC’s

            How shall they ask him to save
           them unless they believe in him?
          And how can they believe in him if
          they have never heard about him?
          And how can they hear about him
             unless someone tells them?
                   (Romans 10:14)
Slide 2


   What does child evangelism mean?

     Child evangelism is a process in which
     crisis conversion is preceded by careful
      Christian teaching and is followed by
        more teaching, or nurturing, which
      helps children become established in
             their Christian experience.
               (Robert D. Troutman)
Slide 3


   Why do we evangelize children?

         Children are born
          with a sinful nature.

         Children are
          responsible for the
          sins they commit.

         Children need help to
          cope with the
          negative influences of
          today’s society.
Slide 4


            When are children
          ready for conversion?
                 When children feel a need to have their
                  own relationship with the Lord.

                 When children question if they will go to
                  heaven.

                 When children feel guilty about doing
                  something they know is wrong.

                 When children are sorry for doing
                  something and are afraid that they will do
                  it again or won’t be able to stop.
Slide 5


                    When are children
                  ready for conversion?
         When children express a concern
          about whether they have a
          relationship with the Lord.

         When children understand what
          Jesus did to make salvation
          possible.

         When children have the ability to
          make a rational choice.

         When children are move/convicted
          by the Holy Spirit.
Slide 6


          What spiritual concepts
           should a child know?
                   Children need to know they are
                    sinners.

                   Children must know what sin is.

                   Sin displeases God and brings
                    punishment.

                   God loves children and does not want
                    them to “die” for their sins.

                   Jesus never sinned. Jesus is the
                    only one who can save us from our
                    sins.
Slide 7


             What must children do
                 to be saved?



          Admit they
          have sinned.
Slide 8


            What must children do
                to be saved?

          Believe God
           loves them
          and sent His
          Son, Jesus to
            save them
            from their
               sins.
Slide 9


          What must children do
              to be saved?

     Claim Jesus
         as their
         Savior.
        (Commit
     themselves to
         Christ.)
Slide 10


      Where can children be saved?

                    Sunday School
                    Children’s Church
                    Vacation Bible School
                    Adult Worship Service
                    Revival Service
                    Special Children’s Services
                    Camp
                    Home
                    Anywhere the child is…
Slide 11


           How do you invite children
                 to be saved?
      Be sensitive to the leading of the Holy
       Spirit.

      Remember children have a will of their
       own.

      Have a plan of action. Know what you will
       say and do.

      Use words the children can understand.

      Allow enough time for the Holy Spirit to
       speak to the children, but do not prolong
       the invitation if there is no response.
Slide 12


           What do you say when the child
            responds to the invitation?
          Gain the child’s attention by calling the child by name or
           touching the child’s arm.

          Ask the child why he or she came to the altar.

          If the child expresses the need to be saved, use Really
           Living to explain the way of salvation.

          Have the child pray in his or her own words. The child may
           prefer to repeat a prayer after you.

          Let the child tell you what God did for him or her.

          Pray a thank-you prayer.

          Follow up.
Slide 13


            Why should we follow up
            children’s conversions?
     The Bible teaches us the
      importance.

     It helps the child who lacks
      assurance of salvation.

     It helps the child remain true to
      Jesus.

     It helps the child to grow spiritually.
Slide 14


               Why should we follow up
               children’s conversions?
          It provides the child with Christian
           models.

          It provides prayer support for the
           child.

          It helps the child to experience
           success, rather than disillusionment
           and despair, in the Christian life.

          It may be the means to winning a
           child’s unsaved parents.

Slide 18




      Salvation is the
       most important
    thing. They will not
     know unless they
     hear. They cannot
       hear unless we
        maintain and
    atmosphere for the
        Holy Spirit to
           speak.
