This evangelism training initiative, sponsored by the Ontario Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, will focus primarily on equipping and empowering children and youth (ages 6-17) to become digital evangelists, digital missionaries and digital disciplemakers.
I Will Go
In times past, the word, “missionary,” indicated that you left home and went to a distant land to share the gospel or engage in service projects. Today, when 60% of the world is online, you can be a missionary without even leaving your bedroom.
‘Walking and Working with Jesus’ (WWWJ) is an initiative focused on empowering children and youth (ages 7-16) to be missionaries in this digital generation.
Isaiah 6:8-9 “Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
Attn: Children Ministries Leaders, Adventurer, Masterguide and Pathfinder (AMP) Club Ministries Leaders and Parents
Greetings! The North American Division has designated 2022 as the Year of Multiplication, where Evangelism will be a top priority. As we sought to align with the expectations of the NAD, several departments within the Ontario Conference Office have collaborated on the Walking and Working with Jesus initiative in 2021, where a four-part training was conducted for children, youth, parents, and leaders. The focus of the training was to equip the children and youth with tools to become active digital evangelists, disciples, and missionaries.
As you plan for 2022, we are providing Evangelism subsidy for children and youth evangelistic series and innovative evangelistic activities and projects in 2022. For example, the departments will make available to local churches, Evangelism subsidy to purchase the children’s evangelistic series software from Truth4Youth. This software contains sermon outlines, graphics, and a manual in English and French. I have attached the application form, which must be submitted by March 31, 2022,
to email@example.com. In addition, please forward a report outlining how the received subsidy has been utilized and the outcome of the evangelistic activity or project to the Children’s Ministries Department by December 14, 2022.
Also, we have developed a suggested timeline for WWWJ activities for the year 2022. Please note that churches may adjust the timeline for WWWJ activities to suit their communities and schedules.
If you have any questions regarding WWWJ, please do not hesitate to contact us.
With warm regards,
