In this video, I give everyone a few tips for sharing Jesus with children.

Here’s a brief outline of the tips listed in the video:

  • Ask open-ended questions.
  • Use a Bible in a translation that’s easily understood.
  • Avoid abstract or symbolic language.
  • Talk with one child at a time.
  • Don’t scare, bribe, or force a child to make a decision.
  • If possible, get the parents involved.
