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 Core Bible different? Why is DiscipleLand
distinct from other curriculum choices? DiscipleLand resources are
indeed fundamentally different.
DiscipleLand Core Bible...
Is "Undated," "Ungraded," and Translation-independent DiscipleLand Core Bible 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 Core Bible's system of six 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 Core Bible will help your children become dynamic disciples
- Develop a reservoir of KNOWLEDGE based on a Biblical worldview.
- Display Christlike CHARACTER in every area of life.
- Demonstrate faithful CONDUCT that honors God and helps people.
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!" DiscipleLand Core Bible 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 DiscipleSkills that prepare them to influence their world for Christ, implementing their faith in every aspect of daily living.
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 first graders and
"grow up" in appearance through DiscipleLand Core Bible. 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.
Connects to the Home DiscipleLand Core Bible encourages kids to consistently practice Biblical principles in the home. Every quarter, parents receive an informational sheet giving them ways to involve themselves with what
their children are learning. Unique resources such as Bible Cards, Posters, and a special website (DiscipleZone.com) bridge the classroom to the home, making the discipleship journey a 24/7 experience!
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.
