Take kids on a fast-track trip through the Bible—Genesis to Revelation—in eight sessions. During the sessions, leaders will tell, act out, and draw pictures related to the Bible stories, helping kids connect the major people and events of the Bible to Jesus. At the end of the study, kids will be able to draw their own pictures or use flash cards to tell their families and friends what they learned throughout the study.
Chad Hovind, Pastor of Horizon Community Church in Cincinnati, Ohio and author of Fast Track provided the following about Fast Track:
I learn best when I’m having fun. In the church today, there seem to be two equally bad alternatives: light and fluffy or dry and dusty. One is too shallow and one is too boring. The most important message in the universe should be communicated in a way that is deep, but compelling.
Many children and adults know several Bible stories, but don’t know the larger Bible’s STORY. They have lots of puzzle pieces, but no larger box top to fit the stories together in a fun, memorable, and an easy-to-remember way. For twenty years I looked for a way to give people a fun hook for the whole message of the Bible. I wanted people to understand the larger outline and framework for God’s story in a way where all the Bible times people connect together. The options I found where too long, too boring, or too complicated.
- a tool that is so easy that a young child can use it.
- a tool so fun, the child is engaged in class and loves it.
- a teaching style that incorporates sight, sound, and action.
- children being able to draw simple pictures or use flash cards to explain the major events and people of the Bible.
- a children’s ministry where leaders and children know the quickest way to understand the greatest story ever told.
- new believers, and mature Christ followers feeling competent in knowing and applying the entire Bible.
- Now throw in laughter, action, and some “ah-ha” moments as children understand how the whole Bible points to Jesus … This is Fast Track!
I don’t have to imagine it, I’ve seen it up close and personal. My church took thousands of people of all ages through Fast Track and were overwhelmed with reports from leaders, children, and yes … even preteens who loved the biblical content and fast-paced activities. More importantly, every child and leader will see Jesus revealed—from Genesis to Revelation.
