Parent's Info to Encourage KM's
if your child has committed to be a kid missionary, he or she must have great parents and a great kids pastor!
As a parent, you have a huge impact on your child's ministry as a KM. You can be a great encouragement for him/her to live the 5 habits of a Kid Missionary:
PRAY- Encourage your child to spend time in prayer each day, and to pray for friends who do not know Jesus.
LIVE- Remind your KM that the way he/she talks and acts is very important. Others at school will notice their kindness, respect for authority, and hard work in class. Everything we do is for the Lord.
TELL- Share your testimony with your child, and help him/her to prepare to share his/her personal story with a friend. A testimony has three parts: What I was like before I followed Jesus, how I gave my life to Jesus, and how Jesus has changed me. This is the best place for a child to start learning to share Christ. Just teach him/her to share what Jesus has done.
SERVE- Help your child to see opportunities to serve teachers, school staff, friends, and family. Kids can serve Jesus by starting a prayer group or Bible study at school. Let God lead to opportunities that work in your setting.
GIVE- As early in life as possible, children need to experience the blessing of giving. Encourage your child to give a tithe of whatever money he/she receives, and to give to the missions ministries of your church.
