» Why Kids Need Systematic Discipleship
The Shoulders of Giants Sir Isaac Newton (English physicist, mathematician, astronomer, natural philosopher, alchemist. and theologian) was one of the most brilliant men who ever lived. He told a fellow scientist who wondered how Newton was able to accomplish so much, “If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” Children, at every point in their development, stand on the shoulders of their former selves. Kids cannot write a meaningful essay until they are able to create a coherent paragraph; they cannot write a strong paragraph if they have not learned basic grammar and word

» Teach Children the Real Meaning of Christmas
As we turn our attention to the Lord Jesus this Christmas, the following story will help kids and parents remember the Real Meaning of Christmas. Practical Idea: download your copy of the “Real Meaning of Christmas” below, read the story to your children, or email the download to your parents suggesting that they read it to their families this Christmas season. Children ask, “What is God really like?” Schools, friends, television, and other sources expose children to a variety of ideas. Much of what kids hear about “god” does not even resemble the God who reveals Himself in the Bible.

» Quintessential Questions—What Is God’s Name?
(Part 9 of a Series) This series explores two essential topics: God and people. When children know who God really is and what He says about who they really are, they can confidently navigate faith and life. Kids must know both the Lord and themselves intimately—not superficially. God matters most. Learning about the Lord is more important (and more rewarding) than anything else we can do! People matter to God. People who truly grasp what God says about their identity finally understand who they are and how to live. We all have personal names. Names keep us from confusing one

IFCA International's interest in enhancing the strength of the Church by equipping for and encouraging toward ministry partnerships to accomplish Great Commission objectives extends even to the level of the children in our churches.  Today's children are tomorrow's Church leaders and we believe it is essential to begin at an early age to prepare them for that responsibility.  Strong foundations, laid in the lives of children, will provide a solid basis for carrying on Great Commission ministry in the decades ahead.

With that in mind, we are pleased to have DiscipleLand as a Great Commission partner in ministry.  We heartily recommend the materials they provide for children's ministry in the local church.
