Engaging Bible stories... inspiring role models... fun activities... memory verses... these are components found in most children's Bible curricula today. They are a vital part of DiscipleLand, too.
So what makes DiscipleLand different? Why is DiscipleLand distinct from other curriculum choices? DiscipleLand resources are indeed fundamentally different.
Is "Undated," "Ungraded," and Translation-independent DiscipleLand Curriculum gives you maximum flexibility and adapts to your ministry setting.
DiscipleLand is "undated." Start using it at any time—in a variety of ministry settings. You can select particular topics or Bible books to study, or you can lead children through DiscipleLand's system of learning levels.
DiscipleLand is "ungraded." Teachers can select the most appropriate level of learning for their children. Children move through sequential learning levels, thus integrating the whole Bible into their lives.
DiscipleLand is "translation-independent." Kids and teachers will be comfortable using their preferred English-language Bible translation. In each lesson, your children will be encouraged to open and use their own Bibles to find answers.
Builds Disciples DiscipleLand was created to make disciples. It is based on a children's discipleship system that features sequential learning and helps kids reach their full potential as disciples of Jesus Christ. DiscipleLand Bible curriculum will help your children become dynamic disciples who:
Teaches More Bible Knowledge is best learned in a systematic, precept-upon-precept way. Other children's curricula contain a serious "overlap" problem—some stories are repeated so frequently that kids complain, "We've heard that before!" Each DiscipleLand curriculum line offers solid, content-based Bible lessons—with no repeats! Every lesson introduces a new Bible story or passage.
Other curricula also suffer from a serious "underlap" problem—most of the Bible is untouched and neglected! In DiscipleLand, children study complete sections of God's Word. In addition, one lesson from each quarter features a clear salvation presentation. We believe God gave the Church the whole Bible to read, to study, and to teach our children.
Saves Money DiscipleLand is the best curriculum value available! Each year, the lessons remain the same. Purchase Teacher Guides and Teaching Pictures once and re-use them year-after-year. Simply replenish the student Disciple Guides (student workbooks) as needed and save extra Disciple Guides for use in future years. No need to throw anything away!
Lays a Solid Theological Foundation DiscipleLand comes from Through the Bible Publishers, an established evangelical publishing company that is not affiliated with a denomination. We are sensitive to the doctrinal differences among Christians, so we focus on the core teachings of our Christian faith. Our curriculum appeals to a wide spectrum of churches and schools. For additional information, please see the "We Believe" statement on our website and in our Teacher Guides.
Equips Kids for Service DiscipleLand curriculum encourages children to grow intellectually, emotionally, behaviorally, and spiritually. Kids develop skills that prepare them to influence their world for Christ, implementing their faith in every aspect of daily living. They are also encouraged to consistently practice Biblical principles in the home.
Engages Kids' Interest World-class artists and graphic designers have combined their talents to provide state-of-the-art visuals. Biblical images from a library of over 5,000 Bible paintings give DiscipleLand a unique look that enables children to see Bible characters in realistic scenes and settings.
DiscipleLand also features vibrant illustrations that show modern-day lesson applications. Three special children—Dee, Cy, and Paul—serve as role-model characters in every lesson. They start as preschoolers and "grow up" in appearance through each DiscipleLand curriculum line. Dee is a Caucasian girl; Cy is Asian; Paul is African-American. Put their names together and you have Dee-Cy-Paul (disciple). The little dog that accompanies them is named Chip (DEE-CY-PAUL-CHIP = discipleship). DiscipleLand's multi-cultural emphasis is deliberate. Children learn that Jesus loves and saves children all over the world, from every race and nation.
Produces Global Christians DiscipleLand communicates God's desire to meet the spiritual and material needs of the whole world. Children embrace the Great Commission personally, touching people around the globe. DiscipleLand Core Bible integrates world missions in a way that connects with kids. DiscipleLand Adventure takes children to locations around the world where they learn to creatively apply Biblical principles.
