Grow kids’ faith this summer
with this 7-week challenge.

Kids live on a battlefield — a world filled with temptation,
attacks on their innocence, and fiery darts of doubt. As in any
struggle, battles succeed based on the skills of elite covert
operatives — people who are adequately equipped to emerge

This summer mobilize your elementary-age kids to tackle seven
weeks of covert faith-impacting challenges that’ll help them grow
