The 4/14 Window is a child evangelism movement concept originally conceived by Bryant Myers of World Vision and later popularized by Christian missionary strategist Luis Bush who also coined the term 10/40 Window. The 4/14 Window is a global Christian mission movement focused on evangelizing children between the ages of 4 and 14 years old.
In 2004, Christianity Today reported that in April 1994 Christian children's ministry leaders from 54 organizations gathered for a two-day conference which focused on ways to evangelize children between the ages of 4 and 14. Awana Clubs International, which has trained leaders who head clubs in 10,000 U.S. churches, hosted gathering at its Streamwood, Illinois, headquarters. Christianity Today International along with six other groups co-sponsored the gathering.
In 2005, Dr. Dan Brewster, a director of World Vision, indicated that the 10/40 Window is a vital Christian mission opportunity developed in the 20th century and the 4/14 Window is a Christian mission opportunity in the 21st century which may be just as important.

On September 9, 2009, in the Christian Post Luis Busch said that "Mission strategies developed for the 4/14 Window would be implemented by parents, pastors and other role model figures who play key roles in shaping a child’s worldview."
