The Seven Lightgliders Leaders

Lightgliders is a story that teaches!

Lightgliders serves as a parable created to impart a biblical worldview and to help kids everywhere recognize that they were uniquely made to shine! Every kid gets to create their own Lightglider character and enter into the story. Lightgliders have three primary goals – to RESPECT themselves and each other, to RESCUE the Gliddles from the Machines, and to RESTORE the land from the blight. The overarching story and characters are used to point to the Far Greater Story of God's love for us revealed in the Bible and to teach the five values of a Lightglider – purpose, humility, confidence, hope, and love.

Lightgliders is a discipleship tool for families and ministries to children!

Everything in Lightgliders is designed to:

  1. Teach a biblical worldview and values
  2. Encourage prayer and reflection
  3. Impart a vision for service
  4. Spark meaningful conversations in the home

This narrative or worldview is centered upon and substantiated by the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
