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 SUMMIT different? Why is DiscipleLand
distinct from other curriculum choices? DiscipleLand resources are
indeed fundamentally different.
Is "Undated," "Ungraded," and Translation-independent DiscipleLand Core Bible gives you maximum flexibility and adapts to your ministry setting.
DiscipleLand SUMMIT 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 SUMMIT's system of three learning "summits."
SUMMIT is "ungraded." The large-group/small-group format is appropriate for all elementary-age children. Children see each other integrating the whole Bible into their lives.
SUMMIT 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 SUMMIT 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 SUMMIT 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 SUMMIT, children study complete sections of God's Word. In addition, SUMMIT 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 SUMMIT is the best curriculum value available! Both the Quarterly and Yearly download bundles are offered at one low price—regardless of class size! There are no license fees or recurring billing to lock you in.
Lays a Solid Theological Foundation SUMMIT comes from Through the Bible Publishers, an established
evangelical publishing company that is unaffiliated with any 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.
Equips Kids for Service SUMMIT 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 SUMMIT 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. 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 SUMMIT encourages kids to consistently practice Biblical principles in the home. Every quarter, parents receive an informational email giving them ways to involve themselves with what
their children are learning. Unique resources such as the SUMMIT Discipleship Guidebooks bridge the classroom to the home, making the discipleship journey a 24/7 experience!
