Bringing God’s Word to the Children of China
In 2003, Gospel Light Worldwide began researching the need for children’s Bible resources in China. Church leaders readily acknowledged the absence of available materials and teaching expertise to meet the growing demands of the local church, regardless of size or registration status.
Immediately, we began developing the resident team needed to create a homegrown children’s Bible curriculum and related teacher training resources for Mainland China and her children. Our approach is to work backwards from the desired result of blessing the entire Chinese Church with the teaching resources necessary for any church to establish a comprehensive, practical and sustainable children’s Bible ministry program.
Accretion is built into our plan. Best estimates suggested a 10-year development cycle to Church self-sustainability.
We have now reached the milestone of finishing four complete years of four different age groups of children’s Bible curriculum and teaching resources. All along the way, we have tested over 10,000 copies of these materials with churches, of all kinds and sizes, across China. This milestone was the validation needed before transitioning into more widespread distribution.
As part of this planned roll-out, we recently developed and launched a Chinese language website specifically to offer downloadable lesson plans and training materials for anyone to use free. With 191 cities with more than one million residents, a comprehensive and viral Urban Strategy is vital.
