Here at Superbook in the UK, we love to hear what God is doing with Superbook around the world. We continually receive regular updates on how Superbook is having an impact across the global church. In January 2016 CBN Indonesia launched the Superbook Sunday School. The sole purpose was to start serving and equipping the local church to be able to make disciples of the next generation. What’s even more amazing is that it has been made accessible to all churches because it’s completely free. After a 100 church pilot project in four cities in January 2016 CBN Indonesia now has 2,264 churches actively involved in the Superbook Sunday School. With more than 20 full time facilitators serving churches in 17 cities. Indonesia has 139,000 children in Superbook Sunday School every week. In November of 2016 Superbook Indonesia launched a special Christmas outreach which saw 784 churches activate 2,170 families to host a Superbook Christmas party within their own home. Many of the children who were invited to these Christmas parties didn’t even know Jesus. Of the 30,000 children that attended 21% had never heard the gospel before. Gina Sugiarti who is a Superbook facilitator said:
“Through this outreach kids have a new perspective about Christmas, also their relationship with God is now based on the bible.”
To co-incide with the Superbook Sunday School, CBN Indonesia has launched an initiative to encourage individuals to become Superbook Sunday School sponsors. This has built huge traction and it’s been incredible to see Christians get behind the vision. Through February 2017 more than 2,300 churches have been sponsored by Superbook Sunday School sponsors.
With the recent launch of the Superbook app and the Superbook augmented reality app this number is expected to rise significantly. By 2017 CBN Indonesia aims to have 5,000 churches signed up to be actively using Superbook Sunday School and 25,000 churches in December 2020. What God is doing in Indonesia is truly remarkable and what is even more amazing is, this is just the beginning.
