Child Discipleship

Nurturing Children into Christian Maturity

This ministry was born because we saw an unmet need after doing Jesus Film outreaches...hundreds of children were coming to Christ, but our discipleship materials and methods were designed for adults and not for them! And so, together with churches and schools, we are training child discipleship workers to fill this unmet need.

Since this ministry started in 2018, we have worked to train up child discipleship workers in 21 churches and 5 schools and are currently reaching (as of November 2019) over 2,500 children weekly. Training includes how to choose and tell a Bible story and lead discussions with children, how to choose songs that will build the faith of children, and how to teach children to memorize scripture.

An exciting thing we have witnessed is that in some cases the child workers are multiplying themselves. In some villages where we have not yet reached, Sunday schools have started up in churches where the Sunday school teachers were trained by someone that we trained!

​During the time of school and church building closures due to COVID-19, we worked together with trained Sunday school teachers to bring children's ministry to the radio. Then when group gathering restrictions eased, we began training groups of parents in the communities where our partner churches were located about how to disciple their own children at home. These trainings have been deeply impactful, not only for children, but for their parents. Some parents have shed tears, expressing how thankful they are to have been equipped to better raise their children in the Lord.
