Test Your Knowledge of Today's Kids

Today's kids are not yesterday's kids.  You and I were once kids, but not in today's culture.

As a children's ministry leader, you are a missionary to kids.  By the way, you are in the world's greatest mission field...the heart of the next generation.

When a missionary goes to a foreign country, he or she first learns all they can about the culture and traditions.  As a missionary to today's kids, the same should be true of us.  It is important that we keep up with what today's kids are into, so we can connect with them more effectively.

So, how well do you know today's kids?  Take this 20 question quiz to find out. The answers are at the bottom of the page. Make sure you answer the way you think today's kids would answer.

It's important to stay in touch with what today's kids are facing and how to help guide them through it.
