The Greatest Journey For Your Church Childrens Ministry
Make disciples and help change the world!
Since 2009, millions of children around the world have learnt what it means to faithfully follow Jesus Christ through The Greatest Journey discipleship program, which follows the distribution of Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes by Samaritan’s Purse. As a result, lives are being changed for eternity and new churches are springing up in communities across the globe.
We praise the Lord for making The Greatest Journey one of the largest discipleship programs in the world today. Up to now, it has been available in developing nations only but a new edition, created by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and specially aimed at children in the developed world is now available in Australia and New Zealand.
One pack for 10 students consists of 10 copies of Student Books 1, 2 and 3, 1 copy of the Teacher’s Guide and 25 copies of our Steps to Peace with God tracts. The Teacher’s Guide is an excellent resource to prepare any Sunday school or Scripture teacher to deliver an interesting lesson that will keep the students engaged.
From Australia and New Zealand, Samaritan’s Purse services four developing nations with The Greatest Journey program and in those nations, by God’s grace, over 20,000 children enrolled in The Greatest Journey in the previous season. In 2015, Samaritan’s Purse is hoping to enrol over 40,000 children and is prayerfully working towards increasing the number of new children discipled every year in our region to 150,000 within 3 years. Globally, Samaritan’s Purse through Operation Christmas Child is planning on discipling over 2 million kids in 2015 and this number will, God willing, increase substantially over the next few years.
Our prayer is that Australian and New Zealand children will not be left behind in this massive worldwide discipleship program. We appeal to churches and Christian schools in Australia and New Zealand to reach out to the children entrusted to them by God, by taking them on this greatest journey of all, which will help them to grow up to be the young men and women that God created them to be.
