Reaching Children for Christ!

NEWEST Children's Ministry International (CMI) PUBLICATION

Many of you have used our "outdated" Junior Inquirer's Manual which we offered churches for their new member's class.  Now we have "Membership in God's Church...A Catechism-based Workbook".  This 15 lesson book (table of contents) with about 10-15 pages per chapter, will be ideal for new membership classes, any Sunday School Class that wishes to show the basic doctrine of the biblical, reformed Presbyterian church.  Each chapter lends itself nicely to one or two weeks of classes.

The cost is only $29 for a resource you will use over and over again.  Just imagine, the basic truths of our Christian beliefs laid out in an easy to follow manner using the Shorter Catechism of the Westminster Confession of Faith.

As you study the titles of each lesson you will agree that these topics are essential for any Christian to know.  Sadly, they are often never mentioned for new members. 





Carolyn Thigpen passed away January 6, 2016 in Florence, AL surrounded by friends and family.  She was 94 years old.  Carolyn and PCA Pastor Hank Thigpen founded Children's Ministry International in 1982 out of their home in Tucker, GA and led it until 1997 when Brad Winsted assumed the director's position.  Hank passed away five years ago.  It was their desire to bring reformed, catechetical material into the Sunday School, church and home.  They along with Dortha (Dot) Musante wrote large parts of the "Bible Building Blocks of the Faith", a comprehensive, flannel-board based, Children's Catechism curriculum.  Although many volunteers assisted Carolyn over the years, it was her steadfast devotion to developing, publicizing and distributing the curriculum along with leading seminars around the country to teach teachers how to teach it that gave Children's Ministry International its purpose.

Carolyn's contagious enthusiasm was evident to all as she loved sharing biblical truths to children and their teachers. She was a natural and gifted teacher, who thankfully wrote the curriculum she loved in a format that we can all use.  Everyone who knew her will miss her.  We look forward to a reunion in heaven.

Over a year ago, Children's Ministry International (CMI) entered a Chinese translation agreement with Reformation Translation Fellowship Publishing Company in Taipai, Taiwan to translate and publish the "Bible Building Blocks of the Faith Catechetical Curriculum" into Mandarin Chinese (the primary language of China).   After one year we can now report that even though only three series (A, B, and C) have been translated almost 2000 complete series have been sold, 5000 catechism booklets have been published and thousands of coloring books, extra teacher texts and musical CD's are being sold.  Thousands more of the series and supporting items have already been published and are ready for sale and distribution. Our prayers are that through Hong Kong and other means these biblically based series will find their way onto the mainland. 

The Reformation Translation Fellowship Publishing company has already had over 20 workshops in Chinese on Taiwan, in Hong Kong and Malaysia to teach teachers and acquaint church members with this translated curriculum.  Many more workshops and lectures are scheduled along with training DVD's and other promotional material.   

We can now say that more CMI catechetical series are being sold in Taiwan than in America.  And remember this is just three series out of the 14.  May God lead us to use this curriculum to reach many for Christ.  Pray that the other series will soon be translated and made available.

Yes, the "I" in CMI now has added meaning.  CMI has already translated or is in the midst of translating its Bible Building Blocks of the Faith into Arabic, Spanish, Turkish, Czech, Swedish, Bulgarian, Russian, Hindi, Ukrainian and now Chinese.  Although it appears that our Chinese translation is currently bearing the most fruit.

Equipping the Saints

CMI is committed to bring training to any church or group regardless of size, location, or denomination. During the training, teachers are equipped to explain the gospel message to unsaved children and challenge saved children to walk more boldly in the Spirit. In addition, teachers are instructed in how to assemble and use the flannelboard visual aids for more effective teaching. See more information about Seminars.

Blessings of Evangelizing the Lost

Many children's and teacher's lives have been transformed through the teaching of the CMI curricula.  This change is evident as they gain a desire to live in obedience to the Lord.

This is just a part of the CMI story.  The full story of how God has changed the lives of children and their teachers who have responded to Him will not be known until Jesus returns.

CMI produces Reformed educational material for children related and relevant to the Westminster Confession Catechisms; Reformed Sunday School materials, children's catechisms; Vacation Bible School; Children's Church; Christian Holiday Celebrations; Advent materials; home devotions; shorter Catechism; Reformation Day celebrations; and Christian Character Building curriculum.
