Teaching preschoolers of God's missions message is a joy because you can teach them of the heart of God. What a blessing for a preschooler to come to sense not only that God loves him, but He loves each person in the world and wants all people to know of His great love.

As you lead preschoolers to develop a heart for missions, consider the value of missions awareness and involvement bring to preschoolers, to families, and to churches.

  • Preschoolers become aware that God wants everyone to know of His love and not everyone knows of God's love.
  • Preschoolers move from a focus on self to a focus on others.
  • Preschoolers gain an awareness of Bible thoughts related to God's mission.
  • Preschoolers apply these Bible thoughts to their lives as they learn to pray, give, and help others.
  • Preschoolers gain knowledge of other cultures by learning about missionaries and the people they tell about Jesus.

If your church already has Mission Friends and you need either leadership training or just some advice to help your group grow, please feel free to give us a call. We have a missional lifestyle strategist waiting to hear from you! Call us at 214-828-5150.
