Miami is a diverse city. You can hear many different languages spoken there, including English, Spanish, and French Creole.
Many people who live in Miami come from different nations, such as Cuba, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Haiti, and the Caribbean Islands. Missionary Al Fernandez says, “I love the opportunity to reach the ‘nations’ for Christ in Miami.”
As I travel across the country, I consistently hear the same concerns:
• Help me get more folks involved in kids ministry [enlistment],
• Help me get a grip on classroom management [discipline], and
• Number One!—Help me understand better about children and salvation.
I want to share with you 13 principles of responsible evangelism with children. I believe these principles, when followed, will make for a really good foundation as you join children on their spiritual journeys.
