Respond to God

Podcast: Helping Children Respond to God

Every Generation Ministries believes every child can experience the transformed life Jesus intends for them. That is why we help churches give children opportunities to respond to God in their real lives.

The Word of God is intended to impact every single area of our lives. In Deuteronomy 6:4-9, part of the command from God is to practice the truths of God. For this reason, “response” is one of the five principles from this passage that EGM uses to help churches disciple children.

In this episode of “Better Children’s Ministry,” David Jesse and Tara Thomas discuss the practical ways we can encourage children to respond to God’s Word in their real lives.


4:07 – The blessing of watching children respond to Bible truth

6:30 – Children do ministry too

8:55 – How can we facilitate opportunities for response?

11:49 – Hearing and obeying God’s Word

13:04 – Response activity examples

14:44 – “You will be blessed if you do them.”

15:36 – Encouragement as we help children respond to God
