CBN Ministries

What we do

Children's Outreach

CBN is dedicated to bringing the Word of God and the message of salvation to children throughout the world through programs and initiatives such as Superbook, an ongoing series of scripturally accurate animated stories that includes home and school teaching materials and interactive online experiences.

The Need

  • Research by George Barna and the Barna Institute of over 1,000 adults in May 2001 puts the probability at a person accepting Christ as their Savior at 32% for children between 5 and 13 years old, 4% for children between 14 and 18, and for people 19 years and older.
  • The rate of biblical illiteracy among children and adults continues to grow. According to a recent study conducted in the United Kingdom, nearly a quarter of children had never read, seen, or heard of Noah’s Ark or Adam and Eve.
  • The study also revealed that more than a third of youngsters questioned did not identify David and Goliath or the Good Samaritan as Bible stories.
  • Most importantly, the study showed that a quarter of all children had never heard of the Nativity and more than 40% had never heard of the crucifixion.

What We Have Accomplished Together

To date, millions of children have made the decision to follow Christ as a result of Superbook and other CBN programming.

  • According to Brown and Fraser, 89 million people are projected to have viewed Superbook in 2018 and 62 million to have sung the Salvation Poem song in India, Philippines, Indonesia and Nigeria. 1
  • We now have one or more complete seasons of Superbook in 52 languages, with another 7 in progress. Superbook Academy, a Sunday school curriculum featuring Superbook, is in 19 languages, with another 17 in progress, and The Salvation Poem is in 70 languages, with an additional 11 in progress.
  • CBN exhibited Superbook at Hong Kong's largest international book fair in July 2018. The July event attracted 680 exhibitors from 39 countries and an estimated 1 million visitors. Superbook was also featured at Russia's Multimir in Moscow, Russia's largest Children's Day event showcased kid's media to over 150,000 attendees.

With your generosity, these programs bring hope and relief to those in need, as an expression of God's unfailing love.
