According to Barna Research the probability of accepting Christ is much greater among children, than by teens and adults. In children between the ages of 5 and 13 the probability of accepting Christ is 32%. It drops to 4% for those between the ages of 14 and 18, and picks up to only 6% for the rest of life. The ripest field is children!
Kidology helps to equip and encourage those who minister to children. They do this through their website, and through providing practical training, creative teaching resources, and personal consultation.
Kidology, in its simplest form, means “the study of kids.” In a broader sense it is a call to children’s ministers to approach ministry to children from within the context of the culture of children. As a missionary first learns the culture of the lost he hopes to reach the lost, the “Kidologist,” or student of “kidology,” seeks to first understand today’s kid and culture before attempting to reach them, so that they can be reached creatively and effectively.
Just as the Apostle Paul became “all things to all men, so that by all possible means I might save some,” (I Cor. 9:22b) the student of kidology seeks to customize his or her message so that children will be drawn to it, understand it, and accept it. There is a great need to equip volunteers to do this. Visit: http://www.kidology.org/
