Check out the Comments as well on that news page too.
I cant say that one is too young to preach. AFAIK the bible dosnt really mention anything against it.....infact it may even partially support it, jesus did discuss theology when he was young.
Not sure if someone can supply some support for a child being a preacher?
I see some difficultly with it, lacking practical life experiences to reference the preaching for one, but some children in this world have probably seen more of lifes difficulties than i have too...so it may not be that much of a issue, and you don't need to have to experience something to know something either.
What do you guys think about this?
