Evolutionising The Youth

According to the Bible, the truth of there being a Creator God is self-evident. Hence, the Bible begins, not with any argument for God’s existence, but simply an assertion that ‘God is’ and ‘He created’ (Genesis 1). Similarly, the apostle Paul taught that the reality of God is clearly perceived in the world around us (Romans 1:18–20).
Born believers
Secularists want to indoctrinate children in evolutionary beliefs from their earliest schooldays. Unsurprisingly, studies have shown that children have a natural tendency to believe this.

Kari Jobe – Singing From The Soul

Kari Jobe is a phenomenal and anointed Christian Contemporary Music Artist. She has won numerous prestigious awards, including a Grammy and three Dove Awards. She is a young and beautiful mother and wife, with a fiery passion for sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I was absolutely blessed to chat to her and to get to know her a little better. 
Kari gave her heart to the Lord 
as a young girl
Kari was born in Waco, Texas, to parents Mark and Caroline. She has two siblings, Kristen and Caleb. Kari knew from a young age that she was destined to be a singer – she began singing at age three and has never stopped. She gave her life to the Lord as a young girl, asking Jesus into her heart at age five. As she grew older, she attended Oral Roberts University, Christ for the Nations Institute, and Dallas Baptist University and obtained her degree in pastoral studies and psychology.

“I was a teenager when I started experiencing the presence of God in worship music. That when we worship and declare truth over our lives and hearts, that it does something to shift the atmosphere around us and give a greater sense of God being at work in our lives.”

Evangelising Children

You can help a child to become a friend of God! This is a way to do it:
Have you ever wondered how to have a very special best friend? If you look at this golden circle, can you see where it begins and where it ends? This circle has no beginning or end. My best friend also has no beginning or end. Let me tell you about Him.
My best friend is God, the One who created the land, the oceans, the mountains, and He created you. You are God’s most special creation. John 3:16, tells us: “For God so loved the world…”. That means God loves you. God is holy. He has never done or said or even thought anything wrong. God lives in Heaven and because of that, Heaven is also a holy place. God wants you to be with Him in Heaven someday.
