Karl, I spent my whole day just sitting in front of my computer viewing your training videos - the Kids Church Cooking Show ones; using storytelling, puppets, balloons, magics, object lessons and also about "Evaluating your Ministry" telling about how you diagnose the health of your ministry. Honestly I could say that it was indeed a realization and a blessing spending time watching and hearing those words and insights from you. I was thinking of the ministry that God has entrusted to me, I work with children church for almost five years now and I realize that there are a lot of things that was missing. I decide to talk to God and early this morning when I woke up I prayed to God to really bring back that passion of ministering with the kids because I think sometimes it's just for the sake of work, because I was assigned to work with kids and the very main goal of making disciples has not been realized. Today I was determined to take time to spend time praying for children's ministry and that God will use me effectively. Thank you.
- Inspired, Mona

WHAT IS 10-7-3-1?

Is this some kind of code? Yes! It is how to “Crack the Code of Life.” Simply put, it represents four things every Christian should know to help them as they live. The code represents four basic understandings about life that you can pass along to the children in your children’s ministry and they, in turn, can use 10-7-3-1 to share Jesus with their friends. (They'll love the 'tear and share' Gospel tract.)

Originally created by David Gainous and developed as a children's ministry strategy and theme by Stanley Mearse, 10-7-3-1 has been used to lead many people to God.

The four foundational elements every Christian should know can be easily remembered using these four representational numbers: 10-7-3-1.

 The Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:1-17)
 The Days of Creation (Genesis 1 & 2)
 Letters of Salvation: A - B - C
 Know the One True God and worship Him Only (I John 1:1-5)

The Three Letter's of Salvation:

          A - Admit you are a sinner
                (Romans 3:23)

          B - Believe Jesus died on the cross for your sins and rose again.
                (Romans 10:9)

          C - Confess your salvation in Him to others.
                (Romans 10:10)
