The Child Discipleship Podcast is a conversation dedicated to anyone who cares about the future of the faith. Melanie Hester leads listeners through conversations happening within the world of children's ministry, with insights from thought leaders and front-line servants in the local church and throughout the child advocacy space. We believe this generation of kids can be the greatest generation of disciples this world has ever seen, but they need loving caring adults like you to help make that happen. New episodes drop every Thursday, listen on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and wherever you get your podcasts!

Maybe the best yet?
This week’s episode with Dr. Albert Mohler might just be your best one yet, and that’s not intended as a sleight towards *any* other episode! It helps that I’m a fan of 99.759% of the things he says and the way he says them. Bravo to Ross & Matt!
If you love the church...
This conversation is very important to those who love the church. The gospel we present to our children today will significantly affect the health of the church in 2050. The fearless future church will require Resilient Disciples of Jesus rooted in a culture of belonging, believing and becoming... we can provide that for our kids, but it will not happen if we are not intentional about it.
No Greater Calling…
Great dialogue in the discussion of Child Discipleship. In my opinion, there is no greater calling than to raise up a generation of faith that is Resilient in a culture that is divided and growing increasingly hostile towards Christians. I am thankful to be a part of this conversation on making resilient disciples!
