Kids in Ministry: How to Share the Good News Simply

Episode 147 - Tim, Lydia, and Caleb

This week on the Engaging Missions Show, our guests, Tim, Lydia, and Caleb (pen names) visit to continue our series on including kids in ministry. Throughout the episode, they share their experiences and the ways they involve Caleb and their other children in sharing the Gospel. They also discuss one of the most difficult times they have ever experienced and the ways that God helped them through it.

Tim and Lydia do a great job at presenting some really easy ways to let kids be a part of the Great Commission. By making the tools simple enough for kids to use, the Gospel can be spread throughout the world by anyone and everyone.
