4/14 Window was being developed after the meeting of Dr. Luis Bush and Rev. Kim NamSoo in New York in 2008, and it was o ﬃ cially nominated in the 1st Global Summit where 350 ministers from 65 countries gathered at our church as the new global paradigm of the world missions in 2009. When we say “4/14 Window”, it refers to the children and teenagers between the age of 4 to 14. This is the second page of the 10/40 Window which had been at the center stage of world missions during the past 20 years. The reason why this 4/14 age group are getting such attention is because: 1) Their acceptability toward the gospel is higher than any other age groups. This is supported by the statistics that 85% of the adult Christians in the U.S. accepted Christ when they were kids—similar to the age group of 4 to 14. 2) Their deliverability of the gospel is higher than any other age groups. They are the group that most uses social media, like YouTube, twitter etc. 4/14 Window Movement focuses on this group of children not merely as the object of the Christian education or missions, but as the agent of the missions, and even one more step further, it considers them as the partner of the mission by reaching them, rescuing, rooting, and releasing them into another region of the world.
and releasing them into another region of the world.
