Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us

I want to take a minute to let you know some exciting news. Our ministry, Children Desiring God, which first introduced Fighter Verses™ in 1997, will become Truth78 on April 10.

Visit the Children Desiring God blog to read more about the name change, our vision, new website, new resources, and a launch event. One thing to note: No changes are being made to the Fighter Verses identity, FighterVerses.com, or the Fighter Verses App. We are committed to the Fighter Verses Bible memory program and look forward to improving it in the years to come.

We are grateful to the Lord for you. May the Lord establish your steps as you delight in Him! And may you continue to hide God’s Word in your heart as your joyful and necessary means to fight the fight of faith!

 


Brian and his wife Cindy were drawn to the vision of Truth78 many years before Brian became Executive Director in 2006. As parents, they wanted to train their five children to know and treasure Jesus as the only One who could satisfy the deepest need of their hearts. At Truth78, they found a vision for this ministry, and resources to equip them to nurture their children’s faith. Brian enjoys teaching children and youth in the classroom and through Backyard Bible Clubs, and he seeks to encourage Bible memorization through the Fighter Verses Program.

Children Desiring God (CDG) publishes Fighter Verses and offers products to support you in your Bible memorization efforts. CDG also publishes God-centered Sunday School curriculum for children and youth, parenting booklets to equip parents to spiritually shepherd their children, the My Church Notebook to help children participate in the worship service, and the Making Him Known series of books for family devotions.
