How To Preach To Kids

Leadership / Teaching Techniques //

Here’s ten easy steps to preach to kids:

1. FOCUS – on one message per week.

2. THINK LIKE A KID – Send everything through the kid filter.

3. TEACH IN A SERIES – This will help your kids know where you are going.

4. BE VISUAL –  Use short films, power points, object lessons, and dramas.

5. TELL STORIES – The best preachers are good storytellers.

6. KEEP IT MOVING – Change what you are doing every five to seven minutes.

7. STAY CURRENT – If you package an eternal message in an old wrapper it seems like an old message.

8. TARGET YOUR PEER LEADERS – Your leaders are the oldest kids in the room

9. BE FUNNY – When people laugh it opens up their heart.

10. REVIEW AND REPETITION – Kids don’t get it if you just say it one time.

If you’ve been saying YES to all these things I listed then you need to be building them into your kids’ ministry program and curriculum.

These are the ten steps I use in developing ALL my curriculum at Super Church.
