KIDS & FAMILIES

PURSUEGOD offers free online tools designed to help your family pursue God one topic at a time. Watch the video below to learn more, and scroll down to get started.

FAMILY Q&A

PURSUEGOD RESOURCES are free online tools designed to help you transfer biblical values to anyone – especially your kids. We believe parents are the pastors at home, and our digital library gives you the tools and method to raise kids who pursue God.

How do we schedule "Family Talk"?

When you gather the family to enjoy a lesson from our library, we call it “Family Talk”. But it won’t happen automatically – the parents have to schedule it! Try doing it in the morning over breakfast or in the evening after dinner. Make it fun and keep it flexible, but be sure to put it on the schedule. Initiating healthy family habits is one of the basic responsibilities of good parents.

What about creating conversations with teens?

Our resources are designed to easily spark meaningful topics, but sometimes that’s more difficult with teens. The key is to pick a topic your teens will be interested in, especially for those first few conversations. Create a conversational environment, and learn to listen. Once they realize the value of your intentional conversations, you’ll be able to pick just about any topic. Check out our youth topics.

What if my kids don't want to talk?

Mentoring your kids, depending on their age, is not always easy. But if you’re not committed to it, your kids will pick up on it. Let your kids know that it’s your job to invest in them and make them ready for the world. Tell your kids clearly. Sometimes parents make their kids do something they don’t want to do. That’s the incredible responsibility of parenthood. Be the parent. Start mentoring your kids. You’ll be glad you did.

Can I find PursueGOD Kids on YouTube?

Yes you can! We upload new kids' content every week to our free YouTube channel. Subscribe, like, and comment to help us grow our community. Go to PG Kids on YouTube.

Does PursueGOD have a kids' curriculum for my church?

Yes! PursueGOD offers a free kids' curriculum that is designed to help you create a fun and engaging atmosphere for the children of your church where they can learn about Jesus and the Bible. All of our lessons are easily accessible on our website for parents to find and use at home, too. The goal of our curriculum is to empower conversations at home, equipping parents to disciple their kids every day. Go to the Kids' Church page

What's the story of PursueGOD.org?

PursueGOD was created after a group of pastors realized their church was broken. Though the church was large and growing, they were creating consumer Christians instead of disciple-makers. It wasn’t the people’s fault; the pastors had unwittingly created the problem. So they started re-defining “the win”. Instead of counting attenders, they began counting disciple-makers. That’s why pursueGOD.org was born – to give everyday Christians the tools to make disciples, one topic at a time. Learn more about PG

THE PATHWAY

The PG Pathway is a series of steps that will help you and your kids go “full circle” in your pursuit of God over the next 3 to 6 months. Complete the following as a family:

  1. Warm up with a few topics from this page (see below). Let the kids pick! The first few topics you cover as a family are important and can lay the groundwork for a meaningful pursuit of God.
  2. Get started on our “Chapter a Day” Bible reading plan on the New Testament. Read a chapter every weekday as a family! This will help you develop the important habit of reading the Bible together, and our short daily videos will give you the guidance you need.
  3. Talk about Foundations Truth #1 to learn how to start a relationship with God. It's easier than you think, because Jesus did the hard work to make it possible.
  4. Talk about asking Jesus into your heart. This is where you'll have the opportunity to make a personal response of faith if you've never done that before.
  5. Talk about baptism - and then talk to a pastor or leader about getting baptized if you haven’t already. This step doesn't save you, but it's an important act of obedience to Jesus.
  6. Talk about Foundations Truth #2 to learn about how to live as a Christian. It's all about honoring God and going his direction instead of doing your own thing.
  7. Complete the Grid for Kids series together. You'll be able to cover more topics and series later, but this is a good time to study something that will strengthen your foundation.
  8. Talk about Foundations Truth #3 to learn about making disciples. This is the important final step in "full circle" Christianity, and it's what many Christians never get to.
  9. Get trained on pursueGOD mentoring at our Mentor Start Page. That's where you'll find our Mentor Training series along with additional topics to help you become a disciple-maker. Parents and kids can do this!
  10. Start helping someone pursue God, and click here to register as a mentor. Registering makes you part of our global mentoring community, and it gives you access to our monthly e-newsletter.


And that's it! Go through the pathway and then continue to pursue God with additional topics and series... and help others do the same.
