Participants of all ages, from preschoolers to adults, gain a more thorough knowledge of the contemporary world while discovering how to develop a Christ-like response to meeting human needs through missions. Christ Followers also explores what believers are doing to share the love of Christ around the world. Available as digital downloads.

Written by Kym Mitchell and Suzanne Reece, this interactive book for teenage girls is designed to engage the reader in a journey of exploration toward understanding and using the gifts God has given them, while moving them toward fulfilling their God-given purpose.
Making it in the Real World Reality Game of Life and Poverty
A poverty experience built on a life-size game board, similar to a game of Life or Monopoly, on an exclusive CD with instructions, layout, family situations, game board pieces, debriefing questions, bucks and a resource bibliography.
