When I (Brad) was asked to teach the 3 and 4 year olds in our church's kids' ministry, I had no idea what I was doing when I said "Yes." As I looked at and studied the biblical stories I was being asked to teach, I asked God to show me how to teach these big stories to little children. It was then that I got a picture of a little bear cub living out the adventures and lessons of the Bible in his own forest world. Junior Bear became the parable through which my wife, Jen, and I have taught children, and the adult volunteers, how to better grab hold of the truth of God's word. Our passion is to bring God's word to life for people of all ages. Our hope is that Junior Bear is one way we can do just that.
