Your Church, Your Sons, and Scouting


The Boy Scouts of America made national headlines a few weeks ago when it decided to allow openly homosexual youth into its membership ranks beginning January 2014. The implications of this decision are far reaching, especially for the church. Many churches, including my own, sponsor scout troops. Both my husband and son participated in the troop and enjoyed the many benefits that scouting provided. However, with this new development, what should the church do? What should you do if you have sons in scouting? (more…)

On the Road with CDG – Update

event map

We shared previously about homeschool events where David & Sally Michael would be presenting the vision for God-centered ministry to children and parents. This week is our last event of the homeschool conference season:

David and Sally Michael will be presenting two workshops:

  • Friday, June 14, 11:45 am—Teaching the Bible to Spread the Supremacy of God in All Things
  • Saturday, June 15, 10:30 am—A Vision for Growing a God-centered, Bible-saturated, Christ-exalting Generation

If you are in the area, or planning to be at this event, we invite you to attend these seminars and to visit the Children Desiring God exhibit for a free informational DVD. The CDG team would love to meet with you and answer any questions you may have!

Grateful for the Ministry of Jim T

It is with joy that we thank God for the faithful ministry of a longtime Children Desiring God employee and send him off with a blessing as he moves into a new phase of life and ministry.

Jim T.

For 13 years Jim Tomaszewski has anchored our customer service efforts.

JT on the phone

Some of you may know Jim through phone conversations as he answered your questions about Sunday School curriculum, how to teach biblical truth to children or what it means to have a God-centered vision for ministry. He probably asked you a few insightful questions, too, and most likely prayed for you as you navigated the waters of children’s ministry and parenting.

JT leading small group

Jim loves children and is a very gifted teacher. His experience leading small group and helping guide and direct application has helped many children apply the truth of God’s Word to their own lives.

JT applying 1 Cor 10

We admire the fact that he is a man who applies Scripture to his own life as well!

JT training others

Jim is also a gifted trainer and has spoken at a number of events through the years. His passion to spread a vision for God-centered ministry and to equip whose who are implementing the vision in their own churches has allowed Jim to impact the lives of thousands of our ministry partners.

We’ve all been blessed by Jim’s thoughtfulness, strengthened by his encouragement, and challenged to think deeply because he asks the tough questions. And we dare not neglect to mention how his humor and joyful service has lifted our spirits! Children Desiring God is thankful to God for His faithfulness to Jim and his family.

JT and family
We pray this blessing from Psalm 125:1-2 as Jim moves into the next phase of his life and ministry:

Jim, may you continue to be one who trusts in the Lord, who like Mount Zion cannot be shaken but endures forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, may the Lord surround you from this time forth and forevermore.

Jim, we love you!


If you’ve been blessed by Jim in some way, please feel free to leave a comment for him!

On the Move

CDG Move

After 14 years of sharing office space with our brothers and sisters at Desiring God, we are on the move. We have been so blessed over the years to share facilities, office supplies, staff lunches, morning devotions and much more!

It will be bittersweet to venture out on our own, but we are excited about what God has planned for the future of Children Desiring God!

Jim & Knight

While we move, our helpful customer service team will still be available to assist with any needs you may have. However, we will only blog on Monday, Wednesday and Friday over the next few weeks as we pack, unpack and get settled in our new space.
