Collection: Curriculum Writer: Bethany Darwin

Hey all! Bethany Darwin here. 🙋🏻‍♀️

It's been such a joy serving alongside so many churches in teaching children God's Word. As I write I am thinking and praying for you all as you faithfully proclaim God's Word week in and week out to the kids in your church.

Some of the distinguishing factors of my curriculum are:

  • Gospel Driven, Bible saturated and theologically rich lessons.
  • Activities that encourage kids to actively be in the Word.
  • Scripted lessons (so easily print and go).
  • Usually written for 60-90 minutes and plenty of activities to choose from.
  • Large group/ small group format with suggested song links.
  • Written for a wide age range with options for dividing into different age groups.

Here is a little bit about me and what drives me to write curriculum. I have a BA in Human Development and Family Studies (Samford University (1997) and an MA in Christian Children's Education (Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary). I spent 20+ years working full-time in children’s ministry, both in the US and in Dubai, before coming home to raise my son. During those years in ministry, I discovered gaps in the available curriculum and often struggled to find a curriculum that worked in my church setting. It was this discovery that awakened a passion in me for writing children’s ministry curriculum. I am a member of Bethany Bible Church in Thousand Oaks, CA. 

Along with writing for the Sunday School Store, I write for Christian Focus Publishers and have several self-published books available on Amazon. In the past I was a staff writer for Orange Curriculum.
