Visitation is Effective Ministry The impact will be huge in time because you proved your love. Visitation connects you with the child’s world — “You’re not afraid.” 80% of the children who attend because you visited — “You let me know.” Visits expand your personal ministry to each child — “You care about me.” Visits project an image/testimony in the community — “Thank you for helping my kids.”

Guidelines for Successful Visitation Set a time every week to visit—your program should revolve around weekly visitation. Use a block-by-block approach to reach more kids. Keep a record of information on each child and his family. Visit every kid but spend extended time with selected individuals – weekly rotation or kids with special needs. Be prepared to share the Gospel, listen or lend a hand. Pray for children, parents and family needs.
