Sex Education Resources for Children: A Parent-Church Partnership

by Rev. Marv Parker

Sometime ago I was asked to research available resources designed to help churches resource and equip parents for training children in a Biblical, God honoring view of sexuality. I was pleased to discover an excellent, well done series entitled God’s Design for Sex. The set contains a Parents’ Guide and four age-graded books for parents to use with their children. Having read all five books, it is a privilege to highly recommend them to pastors, church leaders, and parents.

To assist church leaders in making wise decisions on how to best present this material to parents, two documents have been prepared for your consideration:

Christian Based Sex Education for Children*

This document provides the titles and authors for each book, summarizes the need for such training, and provides a review of each book along with outlining the topics covered at each age-level.

Sex Education for Children: A Parent-Church Partnership*

This document identifies the need for a parent-church partnership, what a partnership may look like if using the God’s Design for Sex series, and guidelines offering three suggested levels of usage a church could implement:

• A Minimal Standard
• A Recommended Standard
• A Very Helpful Standard
