The priority of children’s ministry

“If I could relive my life, I would devote my entire ministry
to reaching children for God!”– Dwight L. Moody

 “We believe that children and young people should be
the single greatest priority for Christian work in the coming
decade.”
“If children’s work is neglected you lose the next generation.
– Patrick Johnstone

not see.” – John Whitehead
