OUR GOD-SIZED VISION
Our Specific Vision
Children’s Focused Church Planting / CFCP
CFCP Strategy: the strategy is simple
- The leader Fasts & Prays looking for a “Person of Peace Children’s Worker”
- The worker & leader lead a fun outreach. The worker is trained to share the Gospel (biblically sound & in a way a child can easily understand) with the “Creation to Christ Hand Motions.”
- From the new believers and interested children the worker begins a weekly GameLife time (experiential-games-Bible-discovery-time). All the time looking for opportunities to engage the family.
- This gathering, in God’s time and God’s will, soon becomes a new church. This takes place as children return week after week, teens and youth are recruited as leaders, and families are intentionally engaged.The process follows the simple church planting model based on the biblical principles from Mark 4:26-29. The simple church-planting-steps continually repeat and spontaneously multiply into new locations.
We Make Bible Teaching Fun by creating enjoyable environments & teachable-moments for children and their leaders through fun experiential-games. Creating teachable-moments is one of the most effective teaching methods because children engage all their senses and they personally have an “aha moment” of “now, I understand!”
We Train Champions for Eternity by teaching the Bible and helping believers fulfill their purpose & their calling. We want to be on the sidelines with you as the children you have trained hear the words from Jesus “Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master” Matthew 25:23b We call this blessing being known as a “Champion for Eternity!”
Our Larger Mission
Every Child * Every Nation * Every Year
Discovering their Purpose & their Calling
Our passion and our mission is to see every child, of every nation, hear the good news of Jesus every year and have an opportunity every week to have fun learning how to abide in Jesus “I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5
GameLife provides free-online-training and free-online-lessons for the mission-field. By God’s grace, we are in over 20 countries and expanding every year.
When children discover their purpose & their calling their lives are transformed as they begin to understand they have meaning & they have a purpose in God’s Kingdom. This is the first step to becoming a Champion for Eternity!
Today, research states upwards of 50% to 70% of the children in your gatherings – very sadly – will leave the church before their 16th birthday. Five years from now your children, now teens, if they do no know their purpose in God’s Kingdom – many very sadly – may leave the church to try to find their purpose in the world.
We help you intentionally guide the children under your care to discover their purpose & their calling. Children often do not realize that God has given them talents and abilities that God wants the boys and girls to use for Jesus’ glory! Many children know the gift of God’s love, yet few children know about God’s purpose & calling for their lives. Discovering their purpose & their calling gives their lives meaning today as children, and tomorrow as teens, and in the future as adults.
We are here to help serve you & your team and provide strong discipleship resources. GameLife is part of a larger movement. We are one of the family of ministries of 49 Mountains Academy. 49 Mountains Academy provides free online Bible Discovery lessons and free GameLife lessons to the Far East, the Far North East, Pacifica, India and South America. 49 Mountains Academy seeks to help all believers “Discover their Kingdom Calling to Multiply their Kingdom Impact.” We are seeking to help fulfill Christ’s Great Commission (Matthew 28: 18-20) as each believer exercises their ministry gifts (Ephesians 4:11-16) and takes the Salt & Light of Jesus to all spheres of influence and all regions of the world.
Teach the Bible, setting your heart to study, practice, and teach the Bible (Ezra 7:10). What if every children’s worker believed that they were raising up the next “Daniel,” the next “Esther,” the next “Stephen”, and the next “Priscilla?” Wow, what a bright future for our children!
Help your children discover their purpose & their calling. The servant-leader’s role is to raise up the next generation for the work of ministry – regardless of the unique career-field God calls the child, Ephesians 4:11-16.
Often we think of Paul as the “super-disciple-maker” training Timothy. Yes, Paul is a master disciple-maker 2 Timothy 2:2. Let us not forget though that Timothy learned the scriptures as a child 2 Timothy 3:15 “and you remember that ever since you were a child, you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.” When did Timothy learn the scriptures?
2 Timothy 1:5 “I remember the sincere faith you have, the kind of faith that your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice also had. I am sure that you have it also.”
