Today’s parents feel ill-equipped to spiritually train and educate their preschoolers, elementary kids, and teenagers. Based on the principle that kids and teens learn and comprehend concepts differently as they grow in maturity, Every Age, Every Stage provides an age-suitable discipleship approach, equipping parents to teach their children biblical truths from the ten concept areas of God, Jesus, Holy Spirit, Bible, Salvation, Creation, Church, People, Family, and Community and World.

The wise discipleship plan presented in Every Age, Every Stage is known as Levels of Biblical Learning©. This framework for babies through teens was developed over a period of several years by thought leaders in preschool, kids, student, and next-gen ministries. Levels of Biblical Learning has been taught at workshops, colleges, and seminaries, and incorporated in Bible Study curriculum.

The book also will assist ministry leaders and teachers as they prepare a vision for their ministries and teach biblical concepts in the classroom, putting children and teens on the right path to a life of growth in biblical knowledge.
