1) Building Teen and Adult Resources?

We would like to build our teen and adult sermons and lessons section in our website. If you've written a sermon series, object talk or Bible lesson for teens or adults, please submit them for possible inclusion and publication on the following webpage:
Please note, submissions must be your own or you must have copyright approval from the author to submit it to the site. 

Submit your work to: Please indicate the contact information (eg. name, website, email, church name, etc.), that you want included with your submission.


2) Vision or goal statement?

Has anyone developed or found a vision or goal statement for what students should know/do/feel by the time they finish 6th grade? (We're doing the older children later.) We've done a lot of good things, but we think we could be more effective if we had a picture in mind.

Thanks so much!

Seek peace and pursue it.

3) Children's Ministry Training

Dear Oluremi Popoola

I've been to a seminar this weekend and there I met a lady, that I think will give you all the answers on this subject of Workers for the best mission field ever, our children. Her name Is Charmaine Hendrick and she is from Jackson's Ridge Children's Ministry Training Centre. For me this was a real eye-opener. I think this is the best Training Centre ever. You can reach them on 

Jackson's Ridge 
P.O. Box 880 
South Africa. 
Phone/Fax : 014-577-5920 
Charmaine's Cell no.: 082-782-8051 

I promise you that you will find what you're looking for.


4) Teachers Needed

Sis. Popoola,

You could contact Child Evangelism Fellowship for the needed resources. They have trained me and I recommend you contact them at They are probably in your country, as they are a worldwide organization.

Love and Blessings
Angie Colwell

5) Adult Bible Games?

I was watching a TV game show that has some Bible questions at times and was wondering if there are Bible games that have question and answers. I would like to find some for adults. Does anyone know of any specific ones and where I can find them?


--from SSTN: Absolutely! Beyond the f-r-e-e-b-i-e-s in our Bible Games section (green box, above), you can find some great choices in our bookstore by scrolling down to the search box and then typing "Bible Games" at: 
Some games to check out are: "Bible Trivia Board Game", "Outburst-Bible Edition", "The Bible-20 Questions", and "Apples to Apples-Bible Edition".

Also, don't forget to check out our Bible card game, "Bible Stack-O!" at:
