  • Sweet Sound : The Power Of Discipling Kids In Worship


    A Yancy Ministries Inc. Title


    STOP just doing songs and START leading worship by making disciples who know what it means to worship the Lord in spirit and in truth.

    No matter our age, each one of us was designed to praise, and for our praise to shift the atmosphere and usher in freedom and deliverance. Our worship is a sacrifice unto the Lord-this includes the praises of children. It’s powerful. It’s beautiful. It’s sweet. Can you imagine children singing out, with their whole hearts, praises to their King? It’s quite possibly the sweetest sound you will ever hear! It matters. Jesus himself said, “From the lips of children and infants, you, Lord, have called forth your praise.” (Matthew 21:16)

    This book is full of prophetic, practical, and power-filled truth. It will change the way you view kids worship, as well as your own ability to lead. By using examples from the life of King David, as well as her own personal experiences, Yancy is purposed to empower you to raise up kids who desire to live a life of worship on a daily basis, not only on Sundays. This is about their future. Are you ready to be a part of that?

    Together let’s learn to lift up the Sweet Sound of praise we were made for!

  • Forming Resilient Children


    Many children today are growing up in the midst of adversity, whether family difficulties or larger societal crises.

    All children need to be able to deal with stress, cope with challenges, and persevere through disappointments. While we cannot protect children from all hardships, we can promote healthy development that fosters resilience. In this interdisciplinary work, Holly Catterton Allen builds a bridge between resilience studies and children’s spiritual formation. Because children are spiritual beings, those who work with them can cultivate spiritual practices that are essential to their thriving in challenging times. This book equips educators, counselors, children’s ministers, and parents with ways of developing children’s spirituality to foster the resilience needed to face the ordinary hardships of childhood and to persevere when facing trauma. It offers particular insight into the spiritual experiences of children who have been hurt by life through chronic illness, disability, abuse, or disasters, with resources for healing and hope.

  • Words Of Life Childrens Leader Guide


    Nearly everyone has heard of the Ten Commandments, the list of “thou-shalt-nots” found in the Bible. Jesus saw these commandments not as onerous burdens, but as guideposts to help us experience a good and beautiful life.

    In this book of Scripture and inspiration, bestselling author Adam Hamilton brings modern eyes to the most important set of ethics in history. He considers the commandments in their historical context, considering the meaning of each commandment in Hebrew, unpacking how Jesus reinterpreted them, and showing how every thou-shalt-not was intended to point to a life-giving “thou shalt.” He also explores how the latest research in science and psychology illuminates these commandments, rightly understood, as a way of ordering one’s life beautifully in the present day. In a culture marked by workaholism, materialism, and social media-driven envy, God has given us a time-tested path that leads to gratitude, confidence, and peace.

    The Children’s Leader Guide contains session plans for younger and older children (grades K-2 and 3-6) including games, activities, craft ideas, and reproducible handouts.

  • Feed My Lambs

    I hope to encourage people who might pick up Feed My Lambs to give children’s sermons a try. I think about how I went about it years back. I walked into a Christian bookstore, asked where the children’s sermon book section was, picked up a few books, and wondered if I were biting off more than I could chew. I want people to know they can. God will certainly bless them and all the little ones they are trying to help. Jesus said, “Feed My Lambs.”

  • Plan To Protect US Edition


    A protection plan for children and youth;
    A protection plan for those who work with them.

    Plan to Protect (TM) is not about what we need to do to run programs and activities, and it is not about placing a hardship on your staff and volunteers. Abuse prevention and protection of children and young people is not something we have to do, but something we have the privilege of doing. It is a privilege to create a safe environment in order to have our communities trust us with their family members.
    As you implement Plan to Protect (TM) your efforts are a ministry in itself to:

    protect children

    protect young people

    demonstrate your care for your staff and volunteers

    demonstrate care to parents and family members

    empower and nurture the healing of victim-survivors

    demonstrate grace, restoration and welcome to the offender that comes into your church

  • I Wonder : Engaging A Childs Curosity About The Bible


    How can anyone completely answer the difficult questions that children ask: Who created God? Will there be another flood? Is the Bible true? But then, we adults have questions too: With so many options and Bible translations, where can I go for help? What is the best Bible for my child? How do we talk about miracle stories, healing stories, and the creation stories? What about violence? When kids ask about the relevancy of the Bible for today, what do we say? How we read and interpret the Bible with children may mean the difference between whether or not it will continue to be an important source for their faith development as they become young adults. Written by an expert in children’s ministry, I Wonder is a resource for adults who want to explore ways to help children read, engage, wrestle, and grow into deeper understanding of the Bible. It is for those who come to the Bible with souls open to be fed and who want their children to seek faith and wisdom. It will also help readers address timeless questions and issues including recent biblical scholarship, literary analysis, reading the Bible from their social location and reading the Bible in a multi-faith world.

  • Ministry Training Academies


    Ministry Training Academies are dynamic ministries that train and release children to do ministry. They provide children with a unique opportunity to learn ministry through hands-on experience.

    Ministry Training Academies also help to fulfill the purpose of the local church. Given that children make up approximately 25% of the church population, it would be unlikely for a church to fulfill what God has called it to do unless children are engaged in helping fulfill that purpose.

    Can you imagine if every evangelical church equipped and released their children in ministry? Not only would there be radical changes in the church of Jesus Christ, there would be changes in homes, schools, and neighborhoods. Children who walk in newness of Christ as a believer AND partner with Him in ministry, will have a profound impact in their world.

    Let’s stop doing ministry to our children and begin a chapter in church history where we begin doing ministry WITH children.

  • Compass 3rd-5th Year 1 Quarter 1 Teachers Manual (Teacher’s Guide)


    COMPASS is a series of Bible class curriculum that has been created from the ground up by faithful Christians. By taking the best practices from the different approaches to Bible class, COMPASS provides a fresh resource for quality Bible class programs. A chronological study through scriptures provides the foundation for understanding God, His interaction with mankind, and how students can relate to Him today. Each successive age group is presented with new Biblical texts, and a deeper study of Gods Word, allowing students to gain an understanding of the Bible narrative at an age-appropriate level. Each week students are challenged with memory work that will help them to hide God’s Word in their hearts. This includes the memorization of scripture, along with pertinent facts about the Bible that will serve students well as they learn to navigate scriptures throughout their lives. An end-of-quarter quiz will help students, teachers, and parents gain insight into progress in spiritual development and knowledge. COMPASS recognizes that students face different struggles each week and at each stage of life. Accordingly, each lesson begins by presenting a real-world problem or situation that is relevant to everyday life, then takes students to God’s Word to find solutions for that problem. After drawing out the key principles of the Biblical text, students are finally challenged to make specific application in their lives during the next week. Over the course of study, this produces a habit of spiritual growth and the everyday practice of Christianity. New COMPASS resources are being added all the time, so keep an eye out for other useful teaching tools!

  • Chapel Chats For Children Of All Ages


    For over twenty years, thousands of children (and adults, too) were inspired by the Bible-based stories known as “Chapel Chats” that were shared by Pastor Jerald Borgie and his koala puppet, Jeremiah. Sixty-six of these “chats” along with fifteen illustrated graphics, drawn by artist, Brooke Plowman, are included in the book.

    “Pastor Borgie has a reputation for drawing you into his stories, and his anecdotes are famously popular with both young and old. For many decades, he has invited children to have a seat before him, then his twinkling eyes would take over and a bond was formed. I’m pleased he’s taken this opportunity to share his favorites with a wider audience.”
    Richard A. Swenson, MD, author of Margin

  • Empowering Children : Principles, Strategies, And Techniques For Mobilizing


    Empowering Children is especially designed for field practitioners seeking ways to encourage young people-particularly the marginalized-to become more involved in changing their circumstances. Through dozens of exercises and lessons, the book presents a variety of practical methods for engaging children in the development process-from assessments to evaluations. Discussions on issues such as personal empowerment, self-esteem, problem analysis, and child protection can equip leaders to help children serve as agents of change who understand how valuable they are. The book concludes with preparations for a community child participation plan.

    From a Christian perspective, the realization that all children have dignity and are created in the image of God helps us to see that every child’s input is valuable. The Bible’s concepts of community, church, and mission further help us to see that God not only uses kids in his wonderful plan, but that he also wants all of his children-male, female, young, and old-to participate in his work in the world.
