Great Resource for Raising Discipled Kids

In case you're still wondering, faith isn't something that will be passed on accidentally from generation to generation. It's never been that way, and the trend isn't reversing.

If you're looking for resources that will help you, as the parent, intentionally develop faith in your children, take a look at

I came into contact with Joel Singleton and Matt Dabbs through the blogosphere and the Pepperdine Bible Lectures. Both of them work at the Northwest Church of Christ in St. Petersburg, Florida. Pay attention to that church and these young men. They are sincere disciples who are trying to take intentional steps to helping churches and families pass on faith to children and unbelievers.

Many of you who read this blog, remember our intentional life experiment at the beginning of the year. On Fridays, Holly and I spent our Sabbath engaging our kids in intentional lessons about God in our weekly adventures around the city of Denver. We shared our results at Pepperdine this year, and since then, Joel has asked us to contribute to the Imparting Faith blog each Monday this summer.

If you're interested in reading more about the specifics of our intentional life experiment or just intentional ways to teach your kids the way of Jesus, check out the blog at Each Monday for ten weeks, we will share one practice we did with our kids and what we learned along the way. The first post is already up.
