Children: An Overlooked Mission Field? Taylor Lassiter on Children’s Ministry Overseas

By default, most missionaries and pastors tend to focus their ministry only on those age 18 and up. But if we refocused on the evangelism and discipleship of children—both at home and abroad—might we not see God bless the efforts of church planters in a new way? Taylor Lassiter of Awana thinks so.

Taylor Lassiter serves as Awana Missionary and as an Awana U.S. Field Director. As an Awana Missionary, he leads a volunteer team serving over 300 churches in Southeast Texas and Louisiana. His other leadership responsibilities with Awana include leading ten Awana Missionaries in nine different states, impacting hundreds of churches across America. Taylor and Meredith have served as US Missionaries with Awana since 2008 and served in North Texas and Arkansas before relocating to Houston in 2018. Taylor is originally from Lubbock, TX, and Meredith is from Elgin, TX.
