Those who serve in Children's Ministry do so because they want to help children learn what the Bible says and how they are able to know and walk with Jesus. Most churches tend to do an acceptable job of teaching children the Bible accounts, but do not always do a strong job of teaching children what difference it makes in their lives to know what the Bible says. It is essential for children to learn what the Bible says AND learn what the difference is it makes in their lives to know these things. We must teach both.
AND, along with teaching the "whats" - what the Bible says and what the difference is it makes in their lives to know these things, we also must teach the "whys". Barna's studies show our older children, youth, and young adults are turning away from their faith to atheism at double the rate of any previous generation. Yes, at double the rate. We all know people who are struggling through the pain of having their children, grown children, grandchildren who once had a strong faith, now turn away from their faith. This does not have to continue to happen, but if we want it to stop, we MUST teach the "whys" - why we are able to believe.
