In a press conference yesterday, Dave Ramsey – financial expert, author, radio host and creator of Financial Peace University – announced that he has purchased the nation's second largest Children's Ministry curriculum producer, Children's Ministry Deals.
“Since the company launched in 2011, Children's Ministry Deals has proven time and time again that it is the resource for creative Children's Ministry curriculum and resources at great prices,” Mr. Ramsey said at the press conference. "We are looking forward to making Children's Ministry Deals the #1 Children's Ministry curriculum producer in the world."
The much sought after author and public speaker saw Children's Ministry Deals curriculum used at his own church. He was inspired by the company's commitment to teach kids Biblical truths in a fun way.
“My goal going forward is to continue that legacy. Children's Ministry is the most important ministry happening in the church today, and we need to double our efforts to invest in the lives of our children," Ramsey explained.
The author of Smart Money, Smart Kids went on to say that he wants to help kids learn how to be good stewards of the gifts and talents that God has blessed them with, by learning what the Bible has to say about honoring God, loving others, hard work, and giving.
Children's Ministry Deals founder, Nevan Hooker will continue to lead the team of Children's Ministry leaders, writers, editors, and designers, but they will now have the benefit of being part of a larger team of Christian leaders to help expand their mission and reach.
