Evangelism Ministries

Paint a giant Davey and Goliath poster to hang in the church narthex or entryway, announcing kid-friendly activities. Find out "how-to" below.

Introduce Davey and Goliath as special guests at a "New Kids on the Block" event. Promote it as an incentive for other children who are new members or guests.

Introducing Davey and Goliath as “welcome leaders” in this area of ministry can increase a child’s level of interest and involvement. Be clear that these characters are devoted to being special friends to younger members in your congregation.

All though Davey and Goliath became famous as characters on a children’s television series in the 1950s and ‘60s, they are timeless in their ability to engage children in adventures that interpret faith and values for daily living. The characters can be used to welcome and engage children in kid-friendly ways.

Even as mass media is moving into a more electronic mode, print promotions are still the most readily accessible reference. The Internet is beginning to tower over the audio, cable, and TV markets--as well as billboards, newspapers and periodicals. But billboard and poster promotions are still viable and effective options in almost any setting.

While the church is reflecting a stronger vision and desire to develop an electronic presence for communication and support, congregations are still relying on verbal announcements during worship and print reminders in a bulletin or newsletter as a primary way to connect.

Three cheers for the special-occasion planners, eager youth leaders, or creative Christian education directors who engage members with a splash of color and creativity on a poster or bulletin board display!

Check out the following suggestions as you consider ways that Davey and Goliath can be as kid-friendly partners in this ministry.
