Do you want to reach America's largest hidden mission field? Look down! Studies show that our children's moral development is largely set before the age of ten. Discover ways for your congregation to target this worldview-shaping window of opportunity, equip new Christian parents to nurture spiritual maturity in their kids, and help strengthen the church's future generation. Paperback edition.
No one can deny that our culture is opposed to Christian values, and the influences bombarding our children's moral development can be deadly. But few parents and church leaders realize how critical it is to start developing a child's biblical worldview in the earliest years of life. The problem is complex: parents who themselves did not receive early spiritual training leave their children's training to the church. Yet the church often focuses on older children- not realizing that a child's moral development is set by the age of nine. The answer is for churches to recognize the need to come alongside parents to provide them biblical worldview training, parenting information, etc., that will equip them to help their children become tomorrow's spiritually mature Church.
