Chicago Children Bible Fellowship
Isaac Y. Choi
God has blessed our UBF ministry so much that CBF came about. So CBF means the outcome of God’s blessing upon our ministry. This is the reason we have to maintain, develop and pass CBF ministry on to next generation. That’s why, CBF should be a blessing to UBF.
1. CBF came from UBF ministry
Education is our future
Spiritual discipline and training in young ages
“4-14 window” movement focuses on global mission
Long term goal and vision
Based on ages;

CBF (Children Bible Fellowship)

UBF(University Bible Fellowship)
*Children’s education = CBF + HBF + UBF
Middle-school Bible Fellowship(MBF): 13 --- 15 years old
Children Bible Fellowship(CBF): 1 --- 14 years old
Junior-high Bible Fellowship(JBF): 12 --- 14 years old
High-school Bible Fellowship(HBF): 15 --- 18 years old
1 ----- 13 yrs……………. 85 %
14 --- 17 yrs……………. 10 %

Based on these facts:
CBF ministry = Family education + CBF education
In wisdom (words of God)
In stature (flexible container of mind and heart)
In favor with God
In favor with men at the same time
When children “grow” (by spiritual education)
Bible study and Worship service
Faith building programs
Helps children to come to God and have devotion to Him. Also it brings commitment, loyalty, obedience, affection, thanksgiving and service to God.
Enables children to know who God is, who Jesus is and what God’s history is. Through these learning, children found themselves in the flow of God’s work and history.
Teacher education (on-going)
Teacher training (work-shop, seminar)
This developing process forms new leadership in the church as well
For these purposes:
Special focus on:
Thankful heart (complaining)
Giving life (selfishness)
Service to God (Leadership)
Learning mind (Growing)
Faith comes from practicing the words of God. Biblical programs give children meaning, motivation and encouragement to follow Jesus and enable them to participate in God’s works.
*Easter and Christmas
Bible Olympics I & II:
Reviewing Bible study 2 / year
Bible memorization contest:
400 Bible verses / CBF years
For appreciation to teacher’s service and improving teacher’s quality and enhancing teaching method for spiritual benefits for children.
According to statistics, children stay at home more than 16 hours a day and attend in CBF less than 5 hours per week. This is the reason that parents should be “partners” for children’s education with teachers and “role models” for their children.
Discipleship for own children (Dt. 6:7-9)
Children’s family net-working
Parents /Teachers meeting and seminar
Teacher’s calling, visiting and writing letter to the parent
Family devotion (Dt. 6:5)
Teaching them to obey everything Jesus commanded
Tri-angle relationship: ( children / teachers / parents )
In order to carry our beloved children to God’s perspective, we have to use CBF as a powerful vehicle that teachers may be front wheels to direct and parents should be rear wheels to support.
