Often Christian parents want their children to go to public school to be an ambassador and missionary. However, it doesn’t happen automatically. They must be trained. Their hour or two at church each week is not enough. Most times it is not even geared towards training them to be missionaries at school.
As Christian parents, we must be intentional about training our children to be influential at school. We must help them integrate their faith life with their school life. It is too easy to compartmentalize our lives to make it more comfortable. If children start out their school career with the understanding that their school is the mission field God has called them to, sharing their faith and living with integrity are not questioned. It is much harder to teach a teenager for the first time how to live out their faith than to teach someone entering kindergarten.
There are not many resources out there to help teach and empower us to train our children to be ambassadors at school. Stay tuned. I will blog about as many resources as I find in this area. Please comment, comment, comment about any resources you have seen be effective in training your own children or in other families homes.
Imagine a generation of Christian children living out Christ’s love and speaking boldly of His truth. Talk about a fertile ground for a harvest, a revolution maybe. Let’s get started!
