Some things to remember about :

 

Children and Salvation

1. Ask open-ended questions when talking with children about salvation.

 

2. Remain conversational.

 

3. Don’t jump to conclusions.

 

4. Avoid symbolic language.

 

5. Make the distinction between baptism and becoming a Christian.

 

6. Give time to process and give time for reflection.

 

7. Every child deserves personal counseling.

 

8. Involve parents.

 

When presenting the gospel in group settings:

 

  • Determine the ages to be involved.

 

  • Keep it brief.

 

  • Use a translation that children are familiar with.

 

  • Consider using a response card that lowers pressure.

 

  • Have a follow-up plan.

 

  • Train counselors: make sure they have a plan to follow (ABCs of Salvation); make sure they talk about assurance.
