Home-Schooling has been popular for years and is now becoming one of major tools the Christian family is using to bring up their children in the “way of the Lord”. The onslaught of social media, anti-Christian bias, and the ineffectiveness of public schools are just a few of the reasons many parents have decided that training their children at home is the very best option. The radical changes in public schools has seen the trend explode. Recent statistics note that at least 2.5 million children are currently educated at home. Grace Ministries has three tools that home-school families will love. Each one will help support, encourage and educate young people.
Parents can be assured that each resource is family friendly and of the highest quality.

Periscope: Designed to help believers grasp and understand a biblical worldview. Our modern culture, secularism, and the call to compromise is drawing Christians by the thousands away from the basics of Christianity. FACT: 80% of church-going teens leave the church by the time they finish college. The Church is failing to disciple and equip our believers in the very basics of the faith. We are losing the next generation. Periscope can help ground them in the faith so they can stand against the onslaught of a secular worldview that pressures many to doubt the faith and leave the church. Probe Ministries is respected nationwide and has worked for decades to defend the Christian faith. 7 Sessions, approx. 25 minutes each.
Christar: One of the newest additions to the Grace Ministries team is the world-wide mission organization group called Christar. Their specialty is reaching into Muslim, Hindu and Buddhist people groups with Gospel of Jesus Christ. God, in His wonderful plan, is bringing many from these people groups to our very doorstep. Nearly every community has families from these groups that are now our neighbors, co-workers, and classmates. Unfortunately, 98% of Christians have no idea on how to reach them with the Good News. Christar provides tools and resources to help congregations understand these groups and how to share the truth of Jesus with them. Christar also has one of the most comprehensive and diverse short-term mission programs in the world.
