Child Evangelism Fellowship Songs Available on 4Soils Bible Heroes Apps
Child Evangelism Fellowship and 4Soils are teaming up to provide bliblical content for children on the Ipad/Iphone. CEF and 4Soils recently agreed to include several well recognized songs used in Good News Clubs in the “Bible Heroes” series from 4Soils. Children will be able to sing along with the app, karaoke style, to reinforce key learnings. The first song to be incorporated into the “Bible Heroes” app is “God’s Power” which teaches God’s sovereignty, omnipotence and love.
Despite the 750+ thousand (and growing daily) apps on the Apple App Store, few faithfully portrayed biblical content for kids. But kids aged 3-14 are impressionable (up to 80% of all people become Christian during this age) and many parents of faith believe that planting God’s love and Word in their children’s hearts is the most important thing they can do for them. Since US kids are already using digital media an average of 43 minutes a day, 4Soils and CEF feel it is important for children to have access to solid, Biblically accurate content on the iPad/iPhone.
“4Soils is excited to enter into this arrangement with CEF, as we have a common mission to ‘tell the greatest story ever told’ to children around the world. Music is a powerful medium for teaching the Word of God and we are thrilled that we are able to use tried and true songs from CEF to help us achieve this mission using a digital platform,” commented Lusi Chien, CEO of 4Soils.
“CEF is interested in finding better ways to effectively evangelize and disciple children around the world in this digital age. We understand that children are consuming content via mobile platforms like the iPad and iPhone more and more. Through this agreement with 4Soils, children will be able to learn great truths about God and His Word as they sing-a-long with well-known CEF songs on their mobile devices. I have had a long-standing relationship with the senior leadership of 4Soils and look forward to how God will use this relationship going forward,” said Tom Levanos, Executive Director of Operations of CEF.
4Soils brings Biblically centered delightful digital experiences for children. 4Soils’ mission is 'To tell the greatest story ever told' on mobile devices like iPad and iPhone. All elements of the stories are carefully and faithfully written to accurately reflect the facts in the Bible and includes interactive games, coloring, songs, Bible verses to reinforce the core lessons. 4Soils’ name comes from the Parable of the Sower from Matthew 13, and the four types of soils. Our sincere hope is that the Word of God falls on the good soil of childrens' hearts. "The seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the Word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.” (Matthew 13:23)
