There is no denying that it is God’s command to train up a child in the way he should go. To be faithful to His Word, He calls for us to spend a lot of time in this critical endeavor: when we’re sitting, when we’re walking, when we’re lying down, and when we rise up (Deuteronomy 6:7-8 and 11:19).
Therefore, it should be obvious that one hour of church on Sunday will not be enough to instill Christian values on the little ones God has entrusted to our care. Sadly, that’s all the time many children have to learn about the things that matter the most to God. Approximately ninety percent of children attend government schools. That boils down to 40 hours per week of sexualization and character-corrupting political indoctrination versus one hour of religious training.
The Village Church of Barrington is a model for Proverbs 22:6 that other churches can emulate. They are serious about ensuring children in their church and community have every opportunity to hear the gospel while providing exceptional Christ-centered education in core subjects.
They started opening their doors during the week to children in their congregation and now serve over 300 children from their church and community every week.
If you are not yet convinced that much of what’s taking place in government schools is wicked and the antithesis of what God wants His precious little ones to learn, you haven’t been paying attention to the evidence IFI has been providing for almost thirty years.
But there’s good news and a proven solution.
Jennifer Burns is the founder of Classical Consortium Academy as well as the homeschool enrichment program HEART. These are the programs available at the Village Church of Barrington to disciple over 300 children in their community. This Christ-centered education is equipping God’s little ones for the world.
In this very short video, Jennifer describes some of the features of Classical Consortium, its partnership with the Village Church of Barrington, and why it would be beneficial for any gospel-believing church. Just consider the affect this would have on your own families, your community, and future generations.
Jennifer is willing to help interested churches. For more information, call IFI during normal business hours at (708) 781-9328.
