Two valuable resources available for ministries:
* Club DJ
* Online lessons with Designated Mentor access
Resources for other ministries
We offer a couple of specialized resources which can assist the ministry of the local evangelical church.
The FIRST is Club DJ. This is a rapidly-growing church club program for kids which is now being used by over 40 churches in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario. A related ministry blends Club DJ with Bible quizzing and is called Club DJ CONNEXTION. For more information on this effective ministry and how it can help the children in your church, see the Club DJ website or email the Club DJ director, .
The SECOND is our series of Bible-based online courses with well over 800 lessons available for free, in three languages (English, French and Spanish). These lessons, mostly from The Mailbox Club International, have for over 40 years proven to be effective for salvation and Christian growth. They are geared to children as young as five years old right through pre-teens, youth and adults.
Most of the online lessons are accessed by individuals interested in personal spiritual growth. However, this online resource has been set up—at great expense—in such a way that churches and other organizations can use it with their own people.
The lessons and the student records are all linked in a secure online database with a self-correcting feature for the lessons. We have included a special field in the registration form which can identify specific groups of students, say from a particular church or camp or organization which is approved in advance by David & Jonathan. That church/camp group can designate someone to be their Designated Mentor. This person is then given limited access to a partial record of each of "their" students so they can track how they're doing with the lessons and encourage them in their ongoing growth in the faith.
Since this entire system is online these 800+ lessons can become a valuable resource for evangelical groups anywhere in the world with Internet access.
If you are interested in further information about this free "Designated Mentor" system see this additional page.
Sunday School Classes
Many of our lessons are being used by summer camps, and could also be used in Sunday School settings. One specific idea for adult classes would be to make use of the 27-session "Judges" series or the 21-session "Genesis Patriarchs" series. Each audio-visual teaching session is 10-20 minutes in length. One or two of these could be used in a class session with the corresponding questions serving as a starting point for class discussion. For more information, see "Making Use of this Series in Adult Church Classes."
Our organizational relationships
We believe that God has raised up CEF, GMTC, Bible camps, Bible colleges, churches, and U.B. David & I'll B. Jonathan with unique ministries that complement each other in the overall development of 'David' (our term for a discipleship student).
David & Jonathan supplies lessons, books, awards, birthday cards, camp cards (for camper discounts), youth retreat certificates, and $100 Bible college scholarships within the ongoing development of the program (Canada only).
CEF, where they so desire, promotes the D&J program and distributes lessons to their contacts.
Participating camps promote their involvement in the D&J program and enroll campers in it.
Participating Bible colleges promote their involvement in the D&J program and accept youth retreat certificates from those who have met the qualifications.
