If children really mattered to God’s people, it would affect numerous areas
Christian colleges and seminaries would re-examine every academic discipline in light of the question What about the children? Pastors, for example, would not be allowed to graduate without taking a series of child-focused courses. Missions, social work, communications, and other majors would likewise deal with the strategic place of children.
This is important because when I started in children’s ministry I didn’t know what a children’s pastor was suppose to do. I did what I thought I should and I did what others thought I should. I think every potential pastor should sit through a class talking about the importance of reaching kids. I know I would have benefited from it and I know many of my friends who went to Bible College and Seminary would have benefited
from it. The most importantly the kids we have the privilege of reaching would benefit from it.
