LITTLE ROCK – The spring/summer edition of Arkansas Christian Parent magazine is now available for churches and individuals to pick up at their local Arkansas Baptist associations. A limited number of the magazines are available on a first-come, first-served basis at the Arkansas Baptist News (ABN) offices.
Churches are encouraged not only to share the magazine with their members, but also to use the resource to reach out to their communities.
“Arkansas Christian Parent is a wonderful resource for parents and a strategic outreach tool for churches,” said Tim Yarbrough, ABN editor. “More than 70,000 copies of the magazine have been distributed across Arkansas since its debut in October 2012. It has been a phenomenal success and continues
to be in high demand.”
The new issue includes topics on homeschooling, integrating spiritual truths into a family’s everyday life, parenting in the midst of loss and heartache, exploring the benefits of a private Christian university and helping children make wise decisions.
Contributing writers include Derek Brown, Little Rock area director for Arkansas Baptist Children’s Homes and Family Ministries; Shari Edwards, women’s ministry speaker; Trennis Henderson, vice president for communications at Ouachita Baptist University; Doug Hibbard, pastor of First Baptist Church, Almyra, and Ben Phillips, Arkansas Baptist State Convention evangelism and church health team member, among others.
“Be sure to contact your association to reserve copies of Arkansas Christian Parent today,” said Yarbrough.
“Don’t forget to share the magazine with your neighbors and in local businesses around town. It is an excellent tool for both encouraging believers and reaching out to nonbelievers.”
