Thanks to ministry leaders equipped with the David Caleb Cook Foundation’s Life on Life discipleship program, children all over the world are learning what it means to follow Jesus in every area of life. Through biblical teaching in the areas of spiritual formation, character development, and life skills, children learn God’s truth about the real-life issues they face, such as telling the truth, coping with verbal abuse, trusting God in difficult times, and loving others, even when it’s hard. One of the most critical parts of this program is the investment of caring adults in the lives of the children they serve—that’s why it is called Life on Life!
When COVID-19 brought in-person children’s ministry to a halt, DCCF’s ministry partners sought ways to continue guiding and caring for the children they serve. Many found new and innovative ways to reach out, but most were still struggling to connect with teachers, children, and families. They recognized that those caring relationships were a significant part of meaningful children’s ministry, and they were seeking ways to create those connections while churches are closed.
The DCCF team saw the need and quickly responded. The digital platform that had been in the beginning stages of development moved to the forefront—and Life on Life Digital was born.
Life on Life Digital provides the proven Life on Life discipleship content with some engaging new additions. Shareable audio files, videos, and visual aids, including illustrations from The Action Bible, have been added to the lessons, and new parent connection cards have been added to better support parents as they guide their children’s spiritual growth at home. All of this media-rich content is now available on an easy-to-use, free digital platform, which is launching soon in both English and Spanish. (Check out the image below to take a peek at Life on Life Digital.)
Please pray for ministry leaders around the world as they begin to use this exciting new resource—and please pray for God’s guidance and creativity for the DCCF staff as we continue to seek innovative ways to serve our ministry partners and meet their current needs.
