A Digital Curriculum for Your Weekend Space

Based on research and 70 years of experience, we crafted brite* Curriculum to be biblically sound, centered on the gospel, and easy to equip and inspire volunteers. brite* is perfect for large group + small group or Sunday School + Children’s Church formats. Packed with fun and engaging media tools, you can download brite* onto your tablet, smartphone or laptop for ease or to print out lessons.

Built on the Resilient Child Discipleship Philosophy

The foundation for spiritual resilience is Belong, Believe Become. These three combined factors make up the Resilient Child Discipleship Philosophy (3B) and are validated by research, countless real-life stories, and the way Jesus made disciples in the Gospels.

It’s a community for those who believe that the most strategic and fruitful way to shape the future of the church is effective, child discipleship.
