  • Keeping Your Childrens Ministry On Mission

    $19.99

    Practical Strategies for Gospel-Centered Children’s Ministry

    When building a children’s ministry at a church, there is so much to consider: Which curriculum should we use? How many volunteers do we need? How do we keep parents in the loop? And that’s before we run into stalled check-in computers, missing activity sheets, and floors that need to be vacuumed. While all of the tasks of children’s ministry are important, leaders can get easily distracted with the everyday work of doing ministry and lose sight of the main focus–the gospel.

    Writing from personal ministry experience, Jared Kennedy shares a four-fold approach for gospel-centered, missional children’s ministry: hospitality, teaching, discipleship, and mission. This practical resource covers a variety of topics ranging from creating child protection policies to putting together lesson plans to catechism, helpful for children’s ministers and volunteers alike as they disciple children with the powerful message of the gospel.

  • Acrostic Of Jesus

    $16.99

    “Let’s read the acrostic of Jesus together
    To help you to love him, so he is your treasure.
    We’ll read it, rap it, or sing it-it’s fun!
    Till Jesus comes back and his kingdom has come.
    He’s the Alpha and Omega, from A to Z;
    We pray you see from this book, ‘Jesus came for me!'”

    Catechism can be fun! The Acrostic of Jesus is a joy to read over and over again, and a brilliant tool to help kids gain a greater understanding of Christ. Young readers will learn “Christology”-the study of Jesus. The more we learn about Jesus, the more reasons we have to love him!

    By giving children an alphabetical list of the names and attributes of Jesus written with a rhyming beat, Jonathan Gibson and Timothy Brindle make The Acrostic of Jesus fun to read and simple to memorize. Each characteristic, A to Z, weaves together a beautiful picture of who Jesus is and why he came to earth.

    Using the alphabet to teach about God has a rich history in the Bible, especially in the Psalms and Lamentations. Several of the psalms-notably Psalm 119-begin with letters of the Hebrew alphabet, forming an acrostic that spells out the entire alphabet.

    The authors make learning Christology easy and enjoyable. Their book shows Jesus as he is, not “just to know about him more in our brains, but to know him as the God of glory who reigns.”

    Illustrated by C. S. Fritz, The Acrostic of Jesus is the second in the series, An Acrostic Theology for Kids, introducing children ages five to eleven to systematic theology uniquely on their age level.

  • Every Age Every Stage

    $17.99

    Brought to you from the thought leaders in next generation, kids, and student ministries, Levels of Biblical Learning(c) has been the framework of a wise discipleship plan for babies through preteen Bible study resources taught at workshops, colleges, seminaries, and through the resources produced by LifeWay Christian Resources. Now, this tool has been expanded to include spiritual concepts and milestones for middle and high school students.

    Based on the principle that kids and teens learn and comprehend concepts differently as they grow in maturity, Levels of Biblical Learning outlines how to best understand different biblical concepts at various age levels. These concepts are categorized by ten concept areas: God, Jesus, Holy Spirit, Bible, Salvation, Creation, Church, People, Family, and Community and World. The book will equip ministry leaders and teachers as they prepare a vision for their ministries and teach biblical concepts in the classroom. It will also serve to equip parents to be their children’s primary Bible teachers, putting children and teens on the right path to a life of growth in biblical knowledge.

  • Build On Jesus

    $19.99

    Anyone who has tried it, even for a day, knows that children’s ministry is challenging. Pastors Deepak Reju and Marty Machowski have been in your shoes and they want to help. Drawing on decades of family ministry experience, they have a passion to help children’s ministry directors, pastors, and volunteers remember the “why” of children’s ministry and gain a fresh vision for the “how” of effective discipleship and proactive nurturing of the next generation.

    As you recruit volunteers, organize materials, set up safety policies, and manage the many needs that come your way, you may feel overwhelmed, discouraged, and wonder if your ministry is even effective. Reju and Machowski have a passion to help those involved in children’s ministry remember that it’s more than just providing safe childcare so that parents can attend worship services; it’s about raising up faithful believers who love the Lord, stand firm in the gospel, treasure Scripture, and have a heart for others. These goals can only be met if the whole church is committed to prioritizing time and energy into disciple-making and sets proactive policies for children’s safety.

    Readers will learn about highlighting Bible-based content, recruiting church members, planning for emergencies, and partnering with parents. Build On Jesus equips ministry leaders with the right priorities, people, and practicalities needed for fruitful nurturing and care of the youngest disciples in the church.

  • Wondering About The Bible With Children

    $19.99

    Wondering about the Bible with Children encourages natural curiosity and wonder as they read the biblical faith stories.This book addresses the following questions:
    *How do we talk about miracle stories, healing stories, and the creation stories? What about violence?
    *What’s my role in helping children learn about the Bible and feel comfortable asking questions about what they read?
    *When kids ask about the relevancy of the Bible for today, what do we say?

    How we read and interpret the Bible with children may mean the difference between whether or not it will continue to be an important source for their faith development as they become young adults. We want to teach them in ways that they don’t have to unlearn later.

    Written by an expert in children’s ministry as a guide for anyone helping with the Celebrate Wonder Sunday school curriculum; however, it is relevant for all adults who want to explore ways to help children read, engage, wrestle, and grow into deeper understanding of the Bible. Wondering about the Bible with Children is for those who come to the Bible with souls open to be fed and who want their children to seek faith and wisdom.

  • Gospel Centered Kids Ministry

    $12.99

    The story of Jesus interacting with the Emmaus disciples after his resurrection provides an outline for what a gospel-centered kids ministry looks like: gospel-centered teaching that points to Jesus in every session, gospel-centered transformation that positions the gospel to change a child’s heart and then his or her behavior, and gospel-centered mission where kids join in on the big story of Jesus that continues to unfold.

    Seven out of ten kids will walk away from church after they turn eighteen. About five will return when they have families of their own. But two will never return. Clearly, something isn’t connecting with our kids. As kids ministry leaders, we need to take a hard look at what we are missing in our kids ministries and provide kids the one thing that will satisfy them and keep them connected to the church-the gospel.

    Gospel-Centered Kids Ministry also addresses how to communicate with and encourage gospel-centered leaders and parents as part of your ministry.

  • Childrens Ministry On Purpose

    $18.99

    Many children’s ministries are a flurry of activity, run by dedicated volunteers and staff who put in long hours and work hard for the good of the children and parents they serve. Yet despite good intentions, many children’s ministries today are not effective. They lack purpose and intentionality. A twenty-five year veteran of children’s ministry in the local church, pastor Steve Adams has ministered to families in multiple churches, from tiny church plants to his present position at Saddleback Church. In this book, Steve applies the revolutionary insights of the Purpose Driven Church to children’s ministry and leads readers on a journey of discovery, showing them how to develop an intentional ministry process that moves children toward spiritual health while building a healthy ministry environment for those who work with kids. You will learn how to ask and answer five simple but powerful questions:
    *Why are we on this journey?
    *Where are you and where are you going?
    *Who are we trying to reach?
    *How will we move our children towards spiritual health?
    *What are the essential elements necessary for the journey?

    There is no single key to a successful children’s ministry, nor is there only one way that works for everyone. But there is a proven process you can follow and Steve shows how children’s ministries all over the world are reaching their God-given potential by discovering their biblical purpose, avoiding the traps of frustration and burnout.
