32, 4, and 6

23 07 2007

We are in the midst of raising funds for our kids wing remodel. So we made a video to highlight the value of children’s ministry.

This powerful statistic comes from George Barna’s book “Transforming Children Into Spiritual Champions”. I have quoted it below.

George Barna reported that “the greatest evangelistic window currently available is among young children.” According to the data gathered, children, ages 5 through 13 have a 32 % probability of coming to Christ while teenagers and adults have just a 4% and 6% probability respectively of doing so. Barna continued in the report to state “that if a person does not accept Christ as savior before the age of 14 the likelihood of ever doing so is slim.”

Inspired use of the Barna statistic. Your video made me remember why I am a minister to children.

I know I am late but I just thought I would tell you good job on this. Also, I didn’t think you were that metro. My respect for you just went up 5 degrees.
