The Lightgliders Mission

Lightgliders was created to encourage faith, character, and service into kids before their teenage years and to be a strategic partner for families and churches worldwide.

And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up.
~Deuteronomy 6:6-7 (NLT)

Lightgliders seeks to address the following realities of impacting kids in the 21st century.

A Crisis of Belief

The majority of churched teenagers today do not believe that life has purpose or that the Bible is relevant to their lives.

The Critical Younger Years

Fundamental perspectives on truth, morality, and purpose are firmly in place before the age of 13.

The Importance of Parents

Parents feel responsible for imparting faith and values into their children but often feel ill-equipped to do so.

The Need for Conversations

Kids are greatly impacted by meaningful conversations with those who care about them the most.

The Power of a Biblical Worldview

A biblical worldview credibly answers life's most important questions and substantiates positive values.

The Digital Generation

Digital experiences are shaping young lives, as kids are spending more than 5 hours each day in front of their devices.

Recognizing these realities,

was created to offer a safe, positive alternative for kids digital screen time that can be used by families, churches, and ministries to encourage conversations and reflection about faith and values.

Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.
~Proverbs 22:6 (NLT)
