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 findings from the 2019 Brown and Fraser survey of Superbook viewership around the world, a projected 200 million viewers in 123 countries watched at least one episode of Superbook during the year and 127 million recalled having sung The Salvation Poem song that concludes the program. 1
  • We now have one or more complete seasons of Superbook in 56 languages, with another three in progress. Superbook Academy, a Sunday school curriculum featuring Superbook, is in 17 languages and The Salvation Poem in 72.
  • As Operation Blessing responded to two disasters in 2019, our relief teams used Superbook to support affected children and families. In the Bahamas, we shared the Gospel with more than 500 children after Hurricane Dorian's Category 5 winds pummeled the islands. During OB's deployment assisting Venezuelan refugees across the border in Colombia, a team from CBN's Costa Rica office coordinated Superbook outreaches to more than 1,700 people.

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