Go ye therefore, and teach all nations,


baptizing them in the name of the Father, and

I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you
always, even unto the end of the world.

What is the current
practice now a days?
1. Evangelism becomes the
mere focus of the church.
2. Education is neglected or if
not it becomes secondary.
What model did Jesus Christ
gave to His disciples?

1. He taught His disciples for three years.


2. He spent many hours with them.
3. He taught them how to pray and read the
Bible.
4. He taught them how to share Gods love.
5. He taught them how to prepare for the Kingdom
of God.
What preparation does our
church have for our Children?
* Do we prepare them for the life here
and hereafter?
* Do we consider Christ model for our
children to imitate and emulate?
* Does spending more time in God is our
utmost desire for our children?
Our TOP PRIORITY as a

church.
is to EVANGELIZE our children.
is to TEACH them about the Kingdom of
Heaven.
allow our children to SPEND more TIME with their Bibles
than that of: Facebook/Twitter; and others that could
hinder their relationship with God.
FEED our children things which are heavenly that their
minds will be like akin to the Creators mind.
MAKE disciples for JESUS.
SEND & ENCOURAGE our children to patronize Adventist
Education.
CREATE more programs for our childrens benefits.
Christian education can
help fill this discipleship gap
that we have in our church.

Our Churches are
excellent in supporting the
evangelism program of our
church. But supporting a
Christian school that
would be our challenge.
Gods Ideal for our
Young People

Higher than the highest


human thought can
reach is God's ideal for
His children.
EGW Ed. p.18
How much love do we have
for our young believers?

Love, the basis of


creation and of
redemption, is the basis of
true education. EGW Ed. p.
