Children evangelism very crucial, says Egbuna
The Director of Children Evangelism Ministry Inc., Evangelist Tony Egbuna Chukwudile has enjoined churches to take children evangelism seriously, even as he reminded parents that they are the foundation builders for their children and should use biblical doctrines to do so.
At a dinner organised in Lagos, as part of the ministry’s 40th anniversary, Egbuna called on government to build schools for children and provide such amenities as roads, good transportation system, water and maternity homes for safe delivery.
He said: “Importance of children evangelism is very crucial and cannot be undermined. It is the need of the hour and if children are trained from the cradle, they will distance themselves from examination malpractices, prostitution, alcoholism, armed robbery and all kinds of vices and the country would be saved from collapse.”
Explaining further on the ministry’s mode of operation, Egbuna said his ministry partners churches by training members, helping at Sunday schools, assisting them to organise camp meetings, as well as teaching them Bible doctrines.
The cleric, who asked churches to support his ministry, said: “Churches need to support us because we do not run churches made up of adults and youths and all that, so that we can continue to help them. Indeed, it would not be out of place to say that tithes of churches should be paid to our ministry, since we do not have any particular source of income, while the role of the ministry is very crucial for the survival of homes and the nation.”
According to Egbuna, the Ministry, also known as interdenominational children missionary organisation, started in 1979, which coincided with the United Nations International year of the child.
