LITTLE ROCK – The phenomenal success of the first-ever Arkansas Christian Parent magazine has prompted the Arkansas Baptist News (ABN) to publish a summer 2013 edition.
“The reception of Arkansas Christian Parent surprised us all,” said Tim Yarbrough, ABN editor. “When the magazine debuted at the 2012 Arkansas Baptist State Convention Annual Meeting in Cabot, we had no idea that 13,000 would be distributed at the meeting alone. In all, 35,000 copies were distributed across Arkansas.”
Churches are encouraged to provide copies to families in the church, as well as distribute copies in local businesses throughout their communities.
“Perhaps never before has the influence of a Christian parent been more important,” said Yarbrough. “That’s why the ABN is making a resource like Arkansas Christian Parent available. It is published as a resource for parents to help them make sense of the world that surrounds their children growing and maturing in the 21st century.”
Yarbrough added, “As society continues to shift away from traditional Judeo-Christian values, the family that looks to the unchanging Word of God can provide stability and the assurance of salvation found only in Jesus Christ.”
The summer edition of Arkansas Christian Parent addresses a number of important issues such as sending children into the world, raising compassionate children, discussing today’s headlines with children, helping bring simplicity and clarity to a stressful world, preparing financially for your children’s futures and much more.
“The only way we can provide Arkansas Christian Parent free of charge to churches is through the generous support of our advertisers,” said Yarbrough.
“I encourage Arkansas Baptists to support our advertisers and be sure to tell them that you saw their ad in Arkansas Christian Parent.”
Yarbrough said Arkansas Christian Parent is made available free of charge to churches requesting copies. However, copies cannot be mailed and must be picked up in Little Rock at the ABN offices or in the following ways:
– Through Arkansas Baptist State Convention staff who are assisting with distribution as they travel the state and visit churches.
– At Baptist association offices located throughout Arkansas.
