The $5 Scholarship Takes the Gospel Light Worldwide to One Million Children

$5 covers the total cost for an entire year of children’s Bible study or Sunday School, including a culturally relevant translation, teacher training, printing and distribution of the materials, delivering the lessons and evaluation.

Ventura, November 22, 2006 --( Once you leave the United States, the concept of children’s Bible study or Sunday School is still something of an innovation. At the same time, churches, pastors and others in the international mission field are citing ministry to children as one of their top priorities.

Children under 18 years of age are now making up more than two-thirds of all new believers in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior internationally, with almost half of the total under 14 years old. As a result, there is a worldwide call for these Bible tools from local churches and international ministries to bring God’s Word to children with cultural relevance and sensitivity.

Over 70 years ago, the legendary Bible teacher and Gospel Light founder Henrietta C. Mears established the foundation of Gospel Light Worldwide to fulfill one vital purpose: to put the best possible Bible teaching tools into the hands of teachers and learners around the world. Today, $5 per child can accomplish that almost anywhere in the world.

Gospel Light Worldwide President Marc Stein reflects, “We had been praying for God’s direction and received a heart to help one million children around the world enter and grow in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and the $5 scholarship is best way for almost anyone to be part of what God is doing.”

Gospel Light Worldwide, with international headquarters in Ventura California, helps children around the world enter and grow in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ through culturally relevant, age-appropriate Bible study and curriculum. For only $5 per child, they translate, provide the teacher training, print the appropriate study materials and deliver the lessons for an entire year.
