Danny Akin delivered a message for The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Pre-Conference titled “Little Global Hearts: How to Give Kids a Vision for the World.” Akin began with the eye-opening truth that, in 2019, still half of the world’s population was unreached with the gospel. Reaching them with the Good News will require believers who are raised up to be passionate about the Great Commission. 

Akin addressed a common question for many Christian parents, “How do we embed Great Commission DNA into our children?” by laying out 10 practical principles for instilling into them a lifelong passion for Christ and the lost.
