IMPORTANT NEWS FROM GROW MINISTRIES DIRECTOR - JODI BROOK
I wish to advise that the LCA’s (Lutheran Church of Australia) Board for Child, Youth and Family Ministry (BCYFM) has made the decision to cease being the distributor of Faith Inkubators in Australia.
We do, however, believe that the Faith Inkubators resources provide a wonderful framework of ministry with children, young people and their families and will still actively support the use of this resource for congregations in Australia. In doing so, we refer you to the Faith Inkubators website and suggest your order directly from Faith Inkubators USA www.faithink.com
The Australian version of the Faith Inkubators Head to Heart Faith Journals are still available from ACR Australian Church Resources www.acresources.com.au
If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact me - firstname.lastname@example.org
Faith Inkubators offers four integrated resources that transform Christian education from something the church does to children and for parents, into something children, parents and the church do together.
‘It’s all beautiful. It’s fun. It’s effective. There’s simply nothing like it in the Christian education world. If you’re ready to pull parents into the process of their own children’s faith life, we are ready to help’
- Rev Rich Melheim, founder
Faith Stepping Stones
Parenting and Family Support
Faith Stepping Stones equips and calls parents to grow at home where simple faith practices are deepened and caring communication happens every night. Teach them to bless their babies, pray with the toddlers, share highs and lows with their kindergartners, read Scripture nightly with their young readers, and continue communication all through adolescence.
Arts-based Children and Family Ministry
Sing, sign and art from one end of the Bible to the other with this vibrant new method of connecting children's education, worship and the home. Bible Song engages the whole body as a learning tool using cartoons, art, Scripture in song (verbatim) and sign language. Create it in church and bring the Scriptures home seven nights a week. In the end, 120 verses (at least one from every book in the Bible) will be highlighted in children’s Bibles and committed to memory.
Head to the Heart
Confirmation and Youth Ministry
Grow youth ministry over time with parent-involved small group ministry by celebrating the faith with art, music, skits, game shows and caring relationships. Blend learning with servanthood and fellowship. Encourage parents in the process of their own children’s faith journey every night in every home with our home journals.
