KIDS PREACH AT VIRTUAL CAMP MEETING
Story by Evan Knott
This summer’s Chesapeake Conference Hispanic Camp Meeting, held virtually this year, included a special feature. Chosen from a series of preaching contests, three child preachers spoke to the attendees.
The winners were Alva Danny (pictured) from the New Castle church in Wilmington, Del.; Lucy Cabrera-Sarat from La Esperanza in Baltimore; and Estephany Leonela Hernández from the Glenn Dale Spanish Company in Lanham, Md.
Orlando Rosales, Chesapeake Conference’s Hispanic Ministries director, says the child preaching contests aim to provide ministry training that empowers kids to present the gospel to their peers. “The plan is that when churches have evangelistic programs, these child preachers can preach to the children,” Rosales says. “When children are more active in the church, it’s a blessing.”
