Tips and Tools to Treasure Scripture

Written by Rev. Jim Woychuk [Editor’s Note: Scripture memorization has been an important part of CBM’s ministry from the very beginning when Walter Jensen rewarded schoolchildren with a free week of camp if they memorized a certain number of Bible verses. Pastor Jim Woychuk explores why it should be a crucial aspect of a believers’ life.]   Incline your ear and hear the words of the wise, And apply your heart to my knowledge; For it is a pleasant thing if you keep them within you; Let them all be fixed upon your lips, So that your trust may be in the LORD….” Proverbs 22:17-19 God’s words stored within the ...

Teens in Camping Ministry

by Jan Richoux Teen ministry is an exciting, fast paced, drama filled experience. It is rewarding to see teens from Christian homes take the faith of their parents and make it their own through developing a quiet time, and through practical service, while sharing with other teens. There are a few times when young Christians from non-believing homes come and are nurtured in their faith. A Christian camp is an excellent venue to mentor and train high school students.

Establishing Healthy Rhythms in the Midst of Chaos

By Brittany Burton   Regardless of whether your kids go to public or private school or if you've always homeschooled, all of us are entering a season that is unprecedented due to COVID-19.  Most likely you have been bombarded by lists of resources, digital learning platforms, Instagram live sessions, etc. that you can fill your time with while your children are home from school.  I’m so glad that many online companies are offering their services free of charge.  Being the homebody that I am, I could easily sit and take course after course, catch up on some podcasts, watch musicians play free gigs, and listen to authors read their ...

BibleProject: Ancient Teaching Meets Modern Visuals

By Nathaniel Miller   Almost 3 years ago, I was reading a website I frequent called The Rabbit Room.  I am already thinking I should write something about this incredible community, but I digress.  On this particular visit, I came across an article by Heidi Johnston that briefly highlighted BibleProject, an animation studio in Portland, Oregon (https://rabbitroom.com/2017/05/the-bible-project/).  Having never heard of them, I decided to watch some of their videos.  I was blown away at both the level of biblical teaching and the beautiful artistry of these short 5-8 minute videos.  The conversational style of Tim Mackie and Jon ...
