The Asia Pacific Muslim Teen Outreach Leader’s Guide is designed to help church leaders and volunteers as they guide young people on a journey of knowing more about Christ. It will be used alongside the Book of Hope titled The Bridge. Designed for Muslim youth, The Bridge is a story of two schoolmates who find themselves trapped after an earthquake. They come to learn about each other’s response to their ordeal and find hope in who God is.
This Leader’s Guide will accompany The Bridge and include a curriculum based on the Bible stories found in the Book of Hope that can be applied and customized for church and outreach programs. Training resources will also be built to accompany it.

The Breakthrough program for parents is designed for Chinese-speaking families with children between the ages of 6 and 12. American Bible teacher Chip Ingram has graciously allowed OneHope to adapt and translate this 8-week small group series which presents God as a loving father and encourages parents in their role of helping develop their children’s faith. Ingram provides practical teaching on modeling right living and effective discipline. He also challenges and equips parents to build strong bonds with their children. The goal is to help parents raise children who love the Lord and have a strong sense of security and identity helping them face the challenges of life that come their way. Ingram’s teaching is being dubbed over in Chinese with a Chinese-speaking host introducing and wrapping up each video session. Also, the script and workbook are being adapted for a Chinese-speaking audience.
Primarily geared toward children ages 9-12, this Book of Hope will be designed for outreach ministries in Indonesia, especially amongst unreached people groups. Their religious background includes nominal Christianity, Catholicism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Islam. Indonesia has the largest Islamic population in the world, making up 12.7% of the world’s Muslim population. Within Indonesia, there are still over 200 unreached people groups with a combined population of 165 million. The main goal of this book would be to develop content that can engage children from various religious backgrounds with little to no knowledge of who Christ is.

- Both the student book and teacher’s guide focus on communicating that Jesus is the one true God who created each young person with purpose.
