Adventure is extensively used as a teaching tool throughout the Bible. In God of Adventure Bruce Dunning proposes 19 principles from the Bible that outline the validity, core concepts and teaching approaches of Christian adventure learning. "Finally! A book has been written for adventure learning leaders that is grounded in Scripture. This well-researched and highly readable text will be a valuable resource for Christian educators desiring a stronger theological basis for their practice." -Ken Kalisch, Author of "The Role of the Instructor in the Outward Bound Educational Process," Associate Professor of Outdoor Education, Montreat College, Montreat, North Carolina "Adventure learning has long been with us but seldom understood or valued as the powerful tool for learning and personal transformation as this book so clearly shows it to be. Bruce Dunning has crafted a solid biblical treatise for adventure learning with great applications to ministry and personal life. It is valuable reading for any youth worker or Christian educator who is willing to go beyond the normative approaches to the teaching-learning paradigm in helping young people become all that God first created them to be." -John H. Wilkinson, Executive Director of Toronto YFC, Toronto, Ontario "I would buy this for the Appendix alone." -Stephen J. Cyphers, Outdoor Leadership Program, Colorado Christian University BRUCE DUNNING has been involved in Christian camping every year of his life and has worked full-time at Medeba Adventure Learning Centre since 1980. Medeba is located in West Guilford, Ontario, Canada and specializes in Christian adventure learning. Its mission is to use adventure and community to challenge young people to continually say "yes" to God. Bruce also has extensive experience within the world-wide Christian camping movement. www.GodofAdventure.com

Kids & Parents Need Trustworthy Guides

Raising children to know, love and follow Jesus has always been a challenge—even before child-sized tablets, video games and YouTube were in the picture! Today, there are more demands on kids’ and parents’ time, children are exposed to sensitive topics much sooner, and parents are forced to find new ways to pass down biblical thinking in a world that often opposes Christian values.

To better understand the dynamics shaping childhood faith formation today, we were commissioned by OneHope to study Christian parents' deepest pain points, greatest concerns and dearest hopes for their children.

The result is an 80-page report filled with findings to help ministry leaders and parents partner in faith formation, all with the goal of teaching children to:

  • Engage with the Bible (which correlates with a host of benefits)
  • Navigate technology and the independence it brings
  • Follow Jesus in a resilient way

If you recognize the importance of equipping children with the tools they’ll need to mature in faith, this report contains data and insights you can use to minister more intentionally to kids and better support their Christian parents.

Included in the Church Kit:

  • Print copy of the report of the full color report
  • Digital copy of the report (can be shared with up to 10 users)
  • Presenter Slides that you can use to share these findings with your team or congregation
  • 4 application guides (Top 10 Tips for Parents and Churches, 10 Facts Every Parent Should Know, 8 Questions Every Children's Minster Should Ask Themselves, Infographic of the major findings from the study) - digital
  • Video interview with author and children's minister Michelle Anthony offering practical solutions for engaging parents and children

Format: Paperback, digital. Full color, infographics, 80 pages.

    If you were a warrior you'd have a sharp, shiny sword and an army of soldiers to fight with. There might be a giant to attack, or a throng of enemy soldiers to defeat. But is that all there is to being a warrior? And what does it mean to be a Bible Warrior?


    Abraham, David, Moses, Joshua, Gideon and Jehoshaphat are all men from the Bible who fought in real life battles, but the lessons we learn from their lives are not about sword skills or battle tactics, they are about honouring God and glorifying him. We learn about how God wants us to fight evil, to stand up for the truth and to trust in him to be our Lord and Leader, Defender and the Victor.


    There are other people in this book who didn't fight with a sword, yet they still fought the good fight. They fought with words - good words. They fought against evil by telling the true message of how Jesus died to save sinners. You can learn from them and be like them too. But most of all you can learn to be like Jesus - the one who fought sin and won, who fought satan and won and who fought death and won!


    Get ready to fight!

    Hurt provided a vivid and insightful view into the world of today's teenagers. Now leading youth ministry expert Chap Clark substantially updates and revises his groundbreaking bestseller (over 55,000 copies sold). Hurt 2.0 features a new chapter on youth at society's margins and new material on social networking and gaming. Each chapter has been thoroughly revised with new research, statistics, quotations, and documentation.

    Praise for the first edition



    "Based on solid research and years of insightful observation, Hurt offers a deep and penetrating look into the contemporary adolescent experience that will serve us well as we work to have a prophetic, preventive, and redemptive influence on the world of today's youth culture."--Walt Mueller, Center for Parent/Youth Understanding

    "A daring yet hopeful glance into the underworld of teen promiscuity, self-mutilation, and suicide. . . . A groundbreaking resource for parents, youth ministers, and counselors."--ForeWord



    "Clark's classic book [is] highly recommended by youth workers and educators who write about teenage stress. It is foundational reading that provides valuable insight into the hurting hearts of young people."--YouthWorker Journal


    "Clark has been stepping inside the world of teenagers for many years. This book is a unique invitation for us to join him in their world. When we finish this journey, we will care more about kids and understand who they are and the challenges they face."--Denny Rydberg, Young Life


    "Drawing together research from many others along with his fresh exploration into the world beneath, Clark paints a compelling picture of adolescent life. . . . This book is a must-read for anyone who has any contact with adolescents."--Journal of Youth Ministry
