Lately I’ve visited the children’s ministry in some small churches. These are exactly the kind of under-funded ministries our website exists to serve.

Imagine a child is ready to accept Christ, but they can’t find the words. That’s when a simple example prayer asking for salvation (aka “The Sinner’s Prayer”) is helpful. I’ve read about the debate about this practice, but still believe a model prayer is important for kids who want to give their life to Jesus. Here are […]
