As a Christian, I think it is entirely possible that God can use children as preachers.
I also watched the show, and I think this is a combination of kids mimicking their parents and those same parents then "training" them (as the one
minister said) to expand on their mimicking to put on a good show for their congregation.
I am also not a pentecostal (the majority of these kids were pentacostal or free will baptists, which are also very "performance" orientated), and
find much of what the pentacostals do (speaking in tongues, "filling in the spirit", dancing and screaming, etc.) to be emotional sensationalism and
showmanship then real worship. Again, I am not saying those things can't legitemetly happen in worship or during preaching, I just don't think the
majority of the examples are really that from my personal experience and observations.
I would really like to know who these kids were "ordained" by. Because in most denominations to be ordained one must have some sort of degree, usually
graduate level in theology or mnistry from an accredited seminary. I know in some small churches the church elders can "ordain" someone to preach in
that local church, but to me that doesn't really count.
