What is TruthSeekers?
TruthSeekers is a four year curriculum that lays a strong biblical foundation through the chronological teaching of Scripture. It is flexible, adaptable, and affordable to any context.

When and how often should it be used?
TruthSeekers contains lessons for an entire year and can be used for 33-52 weeks. When you run it is up to you – Sunday – Saturday, morning or night. It is adaptable to any context or timeframe.
How many leaders are needed to run Truthseekers?
This will be unique to your church context. If you are a small church, you might combine multiple ages to make up a class. In other churches you’ll need leaders for each age or class. Many children’s ministry guidebooks will say the best option is a 2:10 teacher to student ratio (with at least 2 teachers per class for child/adult safety and protection.)
Do you provide training?
We equip you to use TruthSeekers in multiple ways. First, we have created a curriculum that is simple to use and has leader helps embedded in the materials. Second, we can connect you with regional training event conducted by our local ministry staff. Fianlly, there are free downloadable resources on this site to help you.
Who is the target age for the curriculum?
TruthSeekers is structured so that is can be used for elementary and middle school students. While the curriculum provides foundational teaching, it is encouraged that you add/subtract to fit your context – whether that is the age of the student or the time available to meet.
Can this be used at home? What about parents?
TruthSeekers is written to be taught in a church setting but there is nothing stopping you from using it for home discipleship. We do provide reproducible take-home pages for the students to bring home, which allows the parent to be aware and involved. These pages are found in the Small Group Handbook under "Let's Think It Through Activity" section in each lesson.
