    Churches Equipping the Home for Discipleship

    Churches Equipping the Home for Discipleship

    Churches have a valuable and critical opportunity to partner with parents in the discipleship of the next generation. In this episode, David Michael, Truth78 executive director, shares with Dan Claassen the need and opportunity for churches to equip families to disciple their children.

    Recognizing that the discipleship of children takes more than the 1-2 hours a week that churches can provide, David stresses how critical it is for the church to partner with parents, especially by equipping them with resources for home discipleship.

    In support of this partnership, David and Dan introduce a new church discount program which offers 40% off bulk purchases of discipleship resources. Find details at Truth78.org/church-discount.

    The books Zealous and More Than a Story that are referenced are available at Truth78.org/zealous and Truth78.org/story respectively. Other books mentioned are available at Truth78.org/products/booklets.

    Understanding and Treasuring the Bible

    Understanding and Treasuring the Bible

    If our children are going to come to salvation and be faithful disciples of Christ, they need the Bible. Unfortunately, when it comes to children and youth, the problem of biblical illiteracy is creeping into even the most biblically solid churches. Additionally, intentional and ongoing Bible instruction is often absent in many Christian homes.

    In this podcast, Dan Claassen talks to Jill Nelson about the critical connection between biblical literacy and the eternal joy of the next generation. Jill also introduces the Growing in the Word Series, new booklets from Truth78 focused on inspiring and equipping the church and the home to teach the next generation to read and study the Bible.

    The series includes:
