How to Teach Children and Youth the Gospel Story

The Gospel Coalition 2011 National Conference


In this 49-minute sponsored breakout session, Gregory Alan Thornbury, Kimberly Thornbury, David Helm, and Russell Moore, discuss the problems that arise when trying to teach the Bible to one’s own children or young ones in a church ministry. The prevalence of curriculum often leave Bible teachers spinning, and these men and woman dive into solutions, highlighting both practical action as well as the character of the God who revealed Himself to children.

God told His people to teach their children the truths of the Scriptures. God fully intends our children—both in our families and in our churches—to understand the gospel. As you investigate the resources available to you, and look to create an atmosphere of Bible teaching for children, remember that God intends young children to know Him.
