Visual Kit for I’ve Got Good News Curriculum
One of the reasons the Great Commission curriculum for children is so important comes from research from Barna Research Group. “We have discovered that peer evangelism among young children (one kid leading another one to the foot of the cross for a life-changing encounter with Jesus) is one of the most prolific and effective means of evangelism in the nation.” (George Barna, Transforming Children into Spiritual Champions, pg 68, Issachar Resources, 2003)
It is important for pastors, children’s workers, and the children themselves understand how in the “real world” of evangelism, healing the sick, intercession, gifts of the Spirit, and other areas of working for the Lord flow intricately together—they are not separate functions which are isolated from one another.
In other words, to be truly effective in evangelism, ideally intercession and prayer should be the foundation. It should be realized that healing the sick, the working of miracles, a prophetic word of knowledge, or the casting out of devils are many times the catalysts which cause people to respond to the message of salvation. The actual preaching of the gospel is only one part of the process of leading a person to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. In studying the Scriptures, it can be quickly seen that Jesus Himself flowed in and out of all of these elements in His earthly walk.
This series teaches kids all the basics of what the Bible tells us about what happens when someone asks Jesus to come into their hearts. At the same time you can teach children to evangelize their friends and families.
