Ready to pack a truck? Join us as we pack the boxes into cartons and the cartons onto the semi! On October 25th after the 11:00 gathering in Kettering we will gather to work, pray and celebrate what God has done this year.

Ever wonder what happens 'after the shoebox?'

...After the shoebox, The Greatest Journey begins! The Greatest Journey is a 12-lesson Discipleship course for children who receive shoebox gifts. The colorfully illustrated lessons, written in the child’s own language, are presented by trained local teachers who help boys and girls learn what it means to follow Christ and share their faith with others! Each child that graduates also receives a New Testament of their very own.

Jesus challenged His disciples to reach the nations with the Gospel. But we can't stop there! We need to equip these young believers with tools to grow in their faith. Apex highly values discipleship and so we have decided to make it a goal to provide an opportunity for all of the children who receive our shoeboxes to participate in The Greatest Journey.  

This additional $6 a box provides for the kids discipleship materials but also for training their local teachers on how to be disciple-makers! Through these children's families, churches are growing worldwide as lives are being changed for eternity and new churches are springing up in communities across the globe.
